    I just noticed a leak on my 5 year old straight 8' blade, I think coming from under the plastic fliud reservoir where it bolts to the manifold, after pulling it out from summer storage. As best I can tell after snugging all the fluid reservoir bolts to the manifiold it's still slowly dripping, so I'm thinking the o ring???

    Does anyone have any experience/advice with a problem like this, o rings leaking, changing it out? and if so, do you know where I can order the 3 piece seal kit, #60435? Approx. Cost? Easy job or pain in the #$%&?

    Thanks for your help!

    you may need a new reservoir,the o ring doesnt usually fail,ive seen the tank fail were the black part is 'welded' to the clear part and also the black pert gets distorted from overtightening.
