What is the problem with the fuel caps? I have a 2015 Ariens Pro.
Thanks... ZavieImho, because some had issues and others didn't.
Due to inconsistent manufacturing,
Some are prone to leaking and hard to take off and put on.
Seeing we had 2 years in row with low snow, I've seen a lot of 2019 stock on the floors. 2020 trickling in, and saw the new cap on those, the small deluxe model. Still haven't seen a 2020 platinum or pro yet.I've now seen snowblowers at 3 retailers, and I have yet to see this new gas cap on any of them. At first I thought maybe it was just last year's stock but that wouldn't account for every single machine not having it, unless Ariens is shipping out old stock in my region.
It will not, the new caps screw on as you noticed. One member said he took the rubber seal off a Honda cap and put it on the Ariens cap and that stopped the leaking. That would be less expensive than replacing the entire tank with this years model tankAny idea if the new cap will fit last years LCT engine ? My Platinum, and the Pro I purchased last Fall also "weeps" gas from the cap. I was hoping for a B&S engine, but the dealer only had the LCT engines in the Pro's. The new one appears to be a "screw" type, compared to the "ears/tabs on mine.
Found this on another thread, he used the whole cap.For those who still have this problem, I tried a big metal fuel tank cap from a Honda GX390 motor on my AX414 (Platinum 30 SHO) and it fit nicely with it's attached filter screen. The Honda fuel cap has a softer and thicker rubber seal than the LCT cap.
