Fuel Cap
« on: September 27, 2016, 06:30:01 PM »
Roo,
 Being a fabricator I was hoping you might know where I could locate a replacement fuel cap.
 The bung it fits is 2" I.D. with straight fine threads on the O.D. The cap was aluminum with an o'ring in it and knurling on the sides.
 I've seen these on several cars just haven't been able to locate a replacement.
 Any help would be appreciated.

SPEEDWAY MOTORS   has the Moon style tanks --high quality and cheap at under $200  I bet they have spare caps as well  I have had great service from my tank I bought from them a 3 1/2 gal and it uses that same cap
I have always had a fascination with fast cars at the expense of more normal character development

It may also be a Murf--his caps are fine thread. Call Theresa at 1 800 542 3088 and have her check the dimensions. I used to stock them but now I use Frank Parks' coarse thread units.  All the Long caps that I have seen (vintage ones) have an internally threaded bung.

Yeah, I am from the south--any further south and I would have been a bloody penguin.

Sorry read that wrong,   depending on year   SPE's were like that too, later ones had engraving on the cap, however no longer in business
