Hello all,

I am in the process of repairing an 82 Interstate that I purchased for $200. I had the chrome cover off the top of the fuel pump to replace the lines/filter. When i screwed it back on with the two screws it started leaking pretty bad a minute later. After shutting the fuel off and removing the cover, I replaced the cover being sure to not tighten the screws as much. It hasn't leaked since.

Does this sound like something that will be an issue down the road? I didn't spend too much time with it, but I am curious if anyone know's why it would leak from just tightening those two screws? I'm new to Goldwing's and "fixing" them so take it easy on me. lol

I must say I am enjoying the process though. I just hope I don't end up putting too much money into it!!! :handstied:

Well that was going to be my approach. Just naturally inquisitive I guess. :) Don't need to end up a flaming wing haha :)

Like anything else with multiple screws they need to be tightened evenly to prevent distorting the part. Check the rest of the screws for tightness.

Well that makes sense Dave :) Sometimes I overlook the easiest, most obvious! Chalk it up to spending too many hours around brake clean rebuilding the brakes. lol Thanks ya'll.
