Honda lawnmower: identify a component

Honda HRB215 mower: fuel leaks from the part at the blue circle. What's the name of that part, and can I put a new gasket in it to fix the fuel leak?

Thanks!

As far as I can see.... that petcock is replaced as one unit. It's not serviceable.

Hey, if it's got screws or bolts holding it together, in my mind it's serviceable. Maybe not with factory parts or anything, but unless something inside has catastrophically failed (like a membrane or mechanical part), I'll try to fix it.

I just fixed a $7 tape measure with some epoxy and an unclenched pop-rivet. Only took about 3 hrs (not counting epoxy cure time), and I had to re-wind it twice, but it's fixed!

I agree and would open it up and replace the O-ring that probably is the problem.

Thanks for the ID, Pete. I wonder if the leak is actually from that yellow-colored plunger deal, rather than from a gasket between the two halves of that unit.

This mower doesn't have a typical twist petcock (that I can find). Is this connected to the throttle for the user to shut off the flow of fuel?

Vic, your 3-hour fix for a $7 part sounds like every project I've ever started!

Thanks,
Dave O
