How do I get...

How do I get the knob off of my fuel valve on a Sno-Tek 24E Model 920402. I am leaking fuel and need to get the shield off and don't want to break the knob. Rich Marcott, Shoreham,NY

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

I've owned the machine less than a year.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I'll try, if it is too involved I have a registered mechanic in the area.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No, I just don't want to damage the fuel valve knob getting it off and I can't see what is leaking until I am able to remove the shield.

No more help needed, your advice was spot on. I can now see that the problem is with the fuel valve itself, it is leaking and needs to be replaced. Thanks again.
