    patman is cleaning the vent noid part easy? no special tools or funky stuff? just pull it off and clean up and reinstall?

    thanks so much guys! maybe i can just do this at home!
    I ordered the kit from Amazon. Took me a while to find a good price, but got it for around $75. You will also need to purchase a short piece of radiator hose (can't remember the size for sure) that is not included in the kit.

    I tried cleaning mine out before replacing. There is a small bucket looking part off the gas can (#3 in Patman's pic). It just slides off, then you can open it up and try to clean it out. Mine was too far clogged. Also, the hose (#4 in the above pic) had to be cut off because it was stuck on so tightly. But as soon as I cut the hose off, WOOOSH! It was like the tank had been holding it's breath forever and finally could breathe. Went and filled it u

    I'll try to get a shot of it for you. No need to worry about gas spilling, the parts only carry air/fumes. No real gaskets or sealers needed either. Makes for an easy swap. I would try to remove the hose going to your current "bucket" and try pumping gas to see if it helps before spending the money on the kit.

    This first pic is a looking up underneath by the rear of the gas tank. The hose coming off of the left of the bucket is the hose that did not come with the kit that connects the filter to the bucket (both filter and bucket were one piece stock). Also, you may want to put on some hose clamps around the fittings, I used zip ties.

    This last pic you can see where I put the filter part, coming off the left of the bucket.

    what you need to start this repair is a new vapor canister. see if you can get one from a scrap yard if you lack the funds for a new one.

    I noticed I have that problem when the pump nozzle is long but not at all when they are short. Also if the gas comes out of the pump super fast, the splash going in the pipe hit the full switch on the pump handle and causes it to stop.
