As I travel to the DSCF, my Cub will be exposed to the elements. (She hasn't spent the night without a roof over her head for over 30 years.) Is there any concern about moisture getting in the gas tank if I were to encounter rain? I am using the new style fuel cap. Thanks, Stanley
Since retirement, the things I miss most are the holidays!
Remove the seat cushion so you don't lose that and the oil bath/breather cap so you don't lose that when towing then tape a bag over the air breather tube. Have fun! We got more snow last night...wish I was going.

Mine stays outside and I have had no issues with water in the gas tank......i have a flapper on the exhaust though......but if I am not mistaken there is a drain hole in the exhaust manifold that drains out any water that make it down the exhaust pipe.......that is if it isn't plugged with gunk.....Mine was. I remember how I found it.....i had just squirted a bunch of Seafoam in the carb and after a while the whole left side of the valve cover turned black....I thought I had a crack in the exhaust manifold.....but no...the Seafoam had no only cleaned the gunk off of the cylinders and rings but it had also cleared the drain hole.
