    Hey guys long time lurker first time poster. I am having quite the time finding a cap for my mower it is a jx75 with the 6hp Kawasaki 180cc motor. Dealer is NO help and have tried some local shops and websites. If anyone has any advice other than "just sell it and get a _____" (already tried the wife said no) I would appreciate it. Thanks everyone!!

    Good luck finding one! I bought two new jx 75 last year. The cap broke on one of them and my dealer (an EXCELLENT dealer) told me that at that time there were none to be found in North America!

    So I used JB Weld to glue the cap back together. It worked for me. If there is leackage after gluing you can always screw the cap over a plastic bag. Hillbilly sounding repair but sometimes you do what you got to do!
