    Over the winter I am going to be maintaining and prepairing my equipment for the upcoming season. My #1 Concern for issues is with my Husqvarna145BT Backpack. I had started to run it the other day to run the remaining gas out of it when I notice the gas/oil mix was leaking out of the tube that transports the gas to the engine after you prime it. Does anyone know why this is or how I should go about fixing it? Also, do I need Husqvarna Spark Plugs/ Air Filters when I am going to put new ones of these in or can I go to a local store like Home Depot and pick any 2 cycle Spark Plug and Air Filter up?
    Thanks. :dizzy: :help:

    The fuel leak is probably from a broken rubber fuel line. Spark plugs, air filters, etc. can be substituted for different brands (NGK, Autolite) and can be bought on-line through J-Thomas.com and other suppliers.
