372 XP clones gas and oil caps?
« on: August 19, 2022, 03:26:37 PM »
Hi everybody. 

I have a three years old holzforma 372. And since day two, i've been annoyed by the leaky gas and oil caps. 

Did you have the same issue?  What was your fix? 

Thanks a lot guys!

Simple fix ought to be to get a couple OEM Husky caps. The seals/o-rings on some of the aftermarket caps are often too hard to provide a tight seal.

I'll have to look into that. Thanks a lot.

I was wondering if anybody had changed the o rings.

I'd go buy OEM o rings and install on caps that should cure the issue.mine leak a tiny bit as well. I plan on doing the same thing.....
