Hi all, I have a Craftsman 5hp Model # 536.886141.
It has served me well for years, though I wish I had bought a larger one instead. Last year I did not even have to use it, not much snow fell.
I am guessing the engine is a Craftsman? Though the part number for the fitting is listed as Tecumseh.
I ordered a replacement fitting, the plastic part on mine is cracked and leaking. Why the heck do they make them plastic!
I attached a picture of the new one. My question is how are they held in?
I did not get the new one yet. Are they screwed in or pressed in?
Where the plastic part sits on the rest of the fitting, is that made to come off, I don't think it should. Mine comes off but that is where it is cracked.
Thanks in advance, I did not want to try to turn it or try yanking it out before I knew how it properly came out.
Took the plastic fitting picture out, making room in my attachment folder.
I bought parts from here, so I guess it is OK to post the picture?
I am sure they won't mind.
