I recently had the redhead on my dump-can rebuilt prior to V2R. However I have had issues with it sticking open, not closing and causing a fuel spill (see attached pic). I’ve never had this issue till recently, someone had mentioned they need to be lubed ? Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

They are rebuildable also. Never done it but I have sold a lot of kits for it.

in one of those pressure pro videos the guy Vince had a hand held grease cup coupling that you just push it down on the dry break a couple times to grease the o ring before the truck gets to the pit . It was in the video about the dirt flap that goes on the fuel cell filler.

just remember there is Lots of gritt in the BaJa, it also loves Vaseline, keep a bag over fueling probe, And cover the truck receiver too, somthing that can be pulled off quick by the fueler

^^^^ Lots of the newer TT's have flappers that are easy to move out of the way. Fueled a couple that had a piece you had to remove and then put back on. With fuel being the limiting factor on pit stops these days this cost us 3-4 seconds each stop.

I used Sil-Glyde,, and greased all 3 O-rings (see above picture) seems to be working fine now, I will be replacing them with the IMS viton o-rings soon ($20) and will make a habit of greasing them regularly

Lube all of the orings with vaseline. You will need to open it like shown in the first photo
