Default fuel tank cap o ring air anfd fuel leak leak

I have one other question my fuel tank is leaking around the lid door. it used to close tightly now i can tell it has way less resistance when closing someone said to tighten the screw un the cap but that has not helped.

i have to keep pressure on the cap just to get the motor to start or it leaks so bad there is not enough back pressure to push fuel in to the carb..

do you know what size that o ring is maybe i can find a new one.

do you have any idea why the ring would go out. i have probaly only ran 10 tanks after break in..

Sorry Derrik, RC-Boss told me you were asking about me, for some reason my email notification isn't working...I'm not sure what size the o-ring is, and we do not sell them.. (only with tank assm.)...I will PM you when the 2-speeds are back in stock.

Derrik,

You would need 10mm (ID) x 14mm (OD) silicone o-ring, I got mine from a local hardware store - o-ring set.
Tightening the screw underneath the cap work as well (to an extent - if you're o-ring is not busted)
