This individually sold fuel gasket is designed for use with handheld lawn and garden equipment and is the seal for the gas cap. This gasket is a genuine OEM part made of a composite material and will eventually become brittle because it interacts with gas and oil, meaning it will need replacing before it becomes debris in the fuel tank. This gasket not only prevents debris from entering the fuel tank, but it also prevents any leaks. To replace, simply unscrew your gas cap and remove the old gasket from the cap, and then replace it with the new.
This OEM cylinder gasket, also called the head gasket, is positioned between the crankcase and cylinder head in your lawn equipment engine. It seals the combustion chamber to maintain compression and prevent gas or oil leaks. It also acts as a protective barrier, keeping contaminants out of the engine. Signs of a damaged gasket include overheating, leaks, rough idling, loss of power, or misfires. If the gasket is broken, oil and coolant can mix with the combustion chamber, leading to engine damage and costly repairs. Debris and contaminants will also enter the engine, reducing the lifespan of your machine. Consult your user manual for instructions on locating and accessing the cylinder head to replace the gasket. Once removed, carefully scrape off the old gasket using a scraper, being cautious not to damage the mating surfaces.
