When I bought my car it came with a temporary push on cap and I'll like to fit the correct screw type cap.

The cap is a screw type but being an early car the diameter of the screw threads is bigger than later cars. Even the filler cap on 1982 900 doesn't fit (too narrow at thread diameter 45mm).
It needs to approx 55mm diameter at the threads. If anyone knows an alternative (say one for a van) please let me know.

Cheers

Jonathan

Location: Fliptop Towers, North Yorks...the flat bit.
Car Model: One or two...
82-on will be narrower because of the narrower unleaded pump nozzles.

What you need will be the same as a pre-82 99, so there should be plenty of those kicking around in breakers. Try Malbrad?

Hi Thanks for getting back to me as I was wondering if an pre 1981 99 might be the answer.

I'll give Malbrad a go as I want to keep the car original. It would have been quite expensive changing filler shroud as there don't seem to be many undamaged ones around.
Hopefully they'll have a locking version sitting on the shelf.

Cheers Jonathan
