Fuel Leak: HELP

I have fuel seeping out from around whatever the thing is that is bolted to the side of the filter housing with Torx bolts. Is there a gasket that I can buy to replace that one or what do I need to do. The bolts are tight. If it is a gasket what is that thing called.

Jesse, that is what I had leaking not too long ago.

You can get the "keyhole" shaped gasket or the whole kit which has the spring, cover and new bolts. It's the FPR housing, IIRC.

If I were you I would get the whole kit, the spring will make a difference in your throttle response and the aluminum housing "could" be out of shape. That's what I did anyway.

Thanks for the info Mike. How much will that run me?

50-60 IIRC, of course that's the kit.

Jesse there is a spring that will come out when you replace the gasket and/or housing, this is the time and place to put the "BB" everyone talks about. I didn't do it since I replaced the spring.

Sorry for the hijack, but does anyone have a part number for the FPR seal only (don't need the other stuff)

I don't, when I had my leak all the dealer had was the kit.

It's actually a "keyhole" shaped round gasket, it's not flat. It sets into a groove cut in to the housing.

Yeah, it's like a formed o-ring. I'm using a modded 6.0 filter housing in a project where I plugged off the regulator, but kept the air bleeder. I may have to buy the kit if I have a leak, and toss out the spare stuff.

Mike is the kit available at a parts store or is it dealer only?
