    Hi, I just changed fluid in a 2 year old HT series MM2 set up. I put the breather cap back on, lifted blade and the cap blew apart. I cannot find the cap. I found the spring, valve and of course it was screwed in so I have that. Anything I can do to get thru the storm we have coming right now? All dealers are closed.

    The breather is a pipe thread, pretty sure it's 3/8". Go pickup a brass plug in that size at Lowes/Home Depot/wherever. Drill a very small hole in it. Run it for the storm until you get a new breather.

    Thank you so much! It is 3/8. I seriously cannot believe I found everything except the largest part. Seriously, thank you so much.

    Have fun in the snow, remember nobody knows how to drive for the first couple of storms.
