not a blower but I'll ask ... I just got (for free) a small Coleman generator, with a Tecumseh 5hp motor. It was the usual won't start, sat for years, machine. I cleaned out all the fuel system, cleaned out the weird Vector carburetor, changed oil and spark plug, and replaced a leaky oil fill tube. As I was setting the rpms, I noticed that gas was slowly leaking from the gas tank cap area. It seems to be vibrating/splashing up when running (the gas tank was only partially full), and slowly leaking around the cap. I could not find any cracks in the cap or tank, though it was hard to tell with the gas leaking. I tried another cap (from another machine) that seemed to fit and it leaked a bit too. Has anyone seen this before? I need a way to get a light source in the tank to look for a leak around the cap area. Otherwise I guess I'll take the tank off and see what I can find.
