Flymo strummer maxi trim 430 leaking petrol?

Petrol leaking where yellow fuel line enters the bottom of the tank.
I can push it in and out of the tank but it does not feel tight enough .
The fuel line is yellow and has a float? attached to the tank end that rattles about.
Can I seal it with something or is a new tube required?

I had the same problem with mine. Just replace the old fuel line with a new one. It can be tight and a bit fiddly to do. I found also, that the old fuel line was so compressed it was causing fuel stavation.

Amazon will sell you a fuel line repair kit quite cheaply

The float thing will be a fuel filter

Good Luck...
