    While I was changing the cradle on my blower I decided to change the fuel filter since I had everything apart. I ended up taking it out from the top of the tank which was easy but now I cannot get the gasket to sit properly back into the tank. Any suggestions?

    A little grease, oil or even Vasoline, will make that baby slip right in there.

    I always just use a wire with a hook on it to grab the fuel line and pull it out from the filler to change my filter. Getting those grommets back in can be a bit of a pain for sure.
