I just ordered parts for my backpack blowers (145BT) and they sent me a new style breather for the gas cap. Anyone else having problems with the older style flimsy rubber piece? I broke more than one a season per blower, I thought my guys were just tightening the caps down so tight that it was breaking the rubber, which I am guessing was the root of the problem, but only 1 factor. I recommend anyone with this same problem to buy the new ones they look more sturdy. Its a minor problem, but spilling gas all over is the end result so it is a solution none the less worth looking in to. Jst thought Id share, as it will save headaches for me next year, it might solve others problems also.
