Default Jiffy 30 auger fuel cap

My Jiffy 30 has been a workhorse for years.....but the O ring on the gas cap vent is trashed. Has anyone just replaced the O ring with one from Lowes or Checker or is it better to get the new "updated" gas cap from Jiffy?

Thanks

My jiffy also leaks but it has a flat washer style gasket. You might check Ace Hardware, they have a good selection of O rings. I bent my cap using a pair of pliers to get it loose., Dumb move

A new cap is a couple bucks. Definitely worth it.

Got mine from gander last year. The old metal one that was on it was crap. The new one is plastic with metal threads.

I too have an older 30 model and have had the problem a couple of times and have made my own after several wasted trips to the hard ware store if you want an honest opinion and are not very mechanically inclined or if you are,for time purposes I would recommend buying one of the newer caps.

I did go ahead and get the new style cap from Cabelas........looks like that was a good move. Changed the spark plug.......made some fresh gas/oil and will put some seafoam in there for good measure. See ya on the ice
