Every winter I strip down the GSA, get a year's worth of crud out of every nook and cranny, inspect all the wiring, then clean and wax as I put it all back together. It keeps me sane in the winter months of snow, ice and temps straddling zero.
I had a significant gas leak today, though, and since I heat the shop with a wood stove I had a few tense moments. The two electrical connections and the fuel line on the left side (facing forward) disconnected as they have always done. But when I pulled the fuel connection on the right side gas dribbled out of the female connector (the tank side) and wouldn't stop. In the ten seconds it took me to catch the problem and plug the line back in I had a three foot diameter puddle of gas on the floor. I mopped it up with rags and tossed them outside in the snow to get them away from the flames. Right now all the doors are open and I'm letting things air out in the 2F temps.
Did I space and do something wrong..?
