Leak from nipple of 2 cycle oil reservoir

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have my 1978 Kawasaki KD 175 that i have been fixing up, and have noticed a leak in the 2 cycle oil reservoir. It is coming off the nipple that sticks out that the hose connects too. The hose cannot go over the crack on the nipple so it just leaks everywhere. I am wondering if there is anything i can put on or do to crack to stop this leak.

Thanks, Jake

Use as small an iron as possible, and be careful when applying heat. You don't want to break through that thin wall.

Thanks, I actually ordered a 1977 K125 oil tank yesterday. Not sure if he meant KD125 or KE125 but it look pretty much identical to mine

I checked e-Bay also before posting a repair option, but only searched for your model, not interchangeable models.
