1486 Fuel Tank Leak


Recommended Posts

While this should be a simple fix, I figured I'd post here to see if anyone had any recommendations before I break something trying to force it apart or make a mess with silicone. Tractor is a 1486 with a single tank.  The actual piece that the fuel cap locks on to leaks like crazy between itself and the fuel tank.  I cannot for the life of me figure out how this separates from the fuel tank to replace the rubber seal.  I put a new fuel sending unit in the right side of the tank, super easy, but the fuel cap mount on the left side I cannot figure out how to pull apart.

Tank looks like the following:   Example Fuel Tank Picture  (This is not my tank.  Stole the picture from a google search.)

Anyone have any recommendations?  Thanks in advance!
