    I just acquired an older kawasaki leaf blower. The fuel line is missing, the air filter gone, and the recoil is shot. From sitting in the guys truck, the engine doesn't want to turn, but i soaked it with penetraiting oil today.

    I'm just wondering if anyone knows where to get parts for the older yellow/white 40cc or so kawasaki backpack leaf blowers. I tried landscapers supply, but they don't have many parts for the old machines.

    Anyone have any parts or one of these laying around?

    do you realy need a back pack blower? by the time you get that thing running you probably can buy a new hand held unit. everything sounds minor except the "doesn't want to turn" part. could be seized piston to cylinder. could be an upper rebuild at minimum. just check your options before spending a lot of cash.
