Anyone know where I can get one of these , the Black bit with the connection. Connection seems to be stuffed and is leaking a lot .

Is it leaking at the pins or is it the gasket where it screws to the tank

It's leaking at the pins , had two new hose fittings but still leaks so I an assuming there is something wrong with the tank fitting .

Hi Jeff
Just Check that you have the correct hose clip
There are about 3 or 4 of those clips that appear and look identical but are slightly different
Wrong one will leak because they do not make the correct seal, the pins line up but do not seal properly.
Cheers Kimo

I would be just getting a new tank if the budget will allow. I don't take any chances when it comes to fuel.
Plastic is for storing lures, not making them.

a new tank would probably cost you not much more that that fitting as I think it has a fuel gauge on bottom of it .
