Question Homelite blower HB-180 - gas cap and carb question

I have a Homelite blower model HB-180. Gas leaks thru the checkvalve in the middle of the gas cap. I don't like using the blower with gas seeping out of the cap. Does anyone know where I can purchase a new cap? I've tried locally but no one handle Homelite products anymore. Any where online? Did Homelite go out of business? One other question. This unit has a Walbro carb on it with the following stamped on the surface of the carb: WT G2 212A. Is the model number of this carb 212A? Where can I get a carb rebuild kit for it? I think I just need the gasket/diaphragm kit. TIA for all your help.

The repair kit for your carb.is :K11-WAT.that has every thing.

The diaphragm/gasket kit is D11-WAT.

You should be able to buy one at any small engine shop,since the same carb.is used on a lot of other brands of equipment.

But yes,sadly,Homelite is out of business,And I don't know where your gona find a fuel cap.Unless you can find a used one some where that will fit.


Lots of Luck
