    Drqin the tank, pull it off and get that part out of there...

    I am sure I have seen gas caps for sale for the stock tanks for the HT's

    If you can't find one, I have an extra one I will send you for free!

    Mine did that. I cut it open with a Hack saw. Got it out and rewelded it back together.

    A full workshop is a must. Ive had mine apart so many times its not funny.
    One of these kits would be great for the budding mechanic. You will be a really good one buy the time you have it running right.:grin5:
