Heads Up On LB/Kohler Service Bulletin

I got my Big Box LB 10734 out of the garage to mow for the first time about a month ago and noticed that the fuel tank filler neck was now oblong shaped and the cap was hard to get on/off.
After figuring out that fuel was leaking out of the tank because of the poor seal around the neck, I called LB to see if there was any kind of warranty coverage on this. The nice lady told me that, yes, there is a service bulletin out on the Kohler 6.5 engine fuel tank, which had a manufacturing defect. She tells me to take it to the "authorized" repair facility and it'll have a new tank installed.
So, I took it over to my local LB dealer and sure enough, he ordered the tank, installed it and I was back in business within a week. No charge.
I'm not sure which models are covered, but anything that uses that Kohler 6.5 OHV engine would probably have the same fuel tank installed.

I wanted to bump this thread if anyone is in need. It's been a month since I got the Lawn Boy back from the shop, and it's been fine. No leaks at all.
