Roundhouse GFA leaking

Post by CSL » Sun Oct 13, 2019 4:20 pm

My Roundhouse gas filler adapter has developed a leak - when I press it down to fill my Bertie's gas reservoir a jet of gas escapes sideways (horizontally) at the joint between the end nozzle and tube parts, i.e. just above the cab roof.

It doesn't quite occur all the time, so possibly when held in certain ways the hole is closed off. I've never seen it happen before.

Has anyone experienced this before? Do I need to order a replacement GFA?

Hi,

I had the same defect on other RH engines.
I recommend to replace it by a new one.

Best wishes
Frederic
