The part where string timmer fuel lines go into the fuel tank.. the grommet?

Is it just called a fuel tank grommet? I cant find the exact part online, and our local dealers don't have these in stock..

redmax part 481085300

I've found echo ones, stihl ones, not redmax, online i find the part diagram and click on the #, and it says $16-20! I need to replace probably 3-4 of them that leak gas out of the tank slightly. Not going to pay $16-20+ shipping for them. Echo one a JD dealer had was $2.89 or $9.xx with the hoses too.

OR..................
You can wrap the grooved part (edge) of the grommet with a couple layers of Teflon pipe tape to build up the O.D. Works like a charm!

Naw...you guys do it the hard way....
Use the next size larger Tygon fuel line if leaking at the hoses..
Put a thin oring around the grommet if the grommet is leaking at the tank..

Is this what you are looking for ? If it is I will have to look thru my receipts and see where I got them. These fit most redmax hedge trimmers and line trimmers. I replaced a bunch last year that were leaking.

Oh yeah, Mower parts group...

Sadly, even the dealers are ordering from them.
But not because we're getting a discount...
