Fuel Gas Petrol Filler Cap Gaskets (dhc later fhc)

Too many people duplicate work that others already have done ... if you're having something remade then tell us about it! Success and Disasters, they are all useful to know about!

Fuel Gas Petrol Filler Cap Gaskets (dhc later fhc)

Postby XSeries » 09 May 2016 21:36

This was something I had remade last year as I was not happy with the dried hard, crusty foam on my own filler caps. Also the gasket on the top of the cap needed replacing to make sure there is a good seal (MoT failure in the UK if it is inadequate). PM me if interested - if ordering alloy wheel centres by post then these could be enclosed with no additional postage cost.

I think we need to make it clear that these components are for the later type/small filler cap and not the pre-1978 model large filler cap.

I concur with Maxwell.

The sponge and rubber fitted perfectly and it was a really nice job to do - start off with an old fuel cap and end up with one looking like new!

My only tip is to watch out for flying parts when you release the pin to disassemble the cap.

John C - the ones for the larger cap are now available as I have had some made (as you are aware since you now have a pair!). See other posting in this section.

I have tried to reply via pm twice now - both stuck in outbox (have contacted administrator)!
Yes £5.75 including postage is the answer.

If a PM is in the outbox it just means it has not yet been read.

I have both of these (venting and none venting). The venting type (UK) does so by holes in the cap mechanism (if I remember right, I have pictures of both to show the difference but can't show them at the moment). The non venting (N/A) is part of the sealed N/A system to prevent gas fumes entering the atmosphere. It vents through the emissions/fuel separator system which is why people who remove emissions can develop vacuum lock if not done correctly.

Hi,
I've tried sending a pm but it seems to be stuck in my outbox?
I'd like to purchase two sets of seals for the later small type fuel cap. Could you please let me have details on payment etc?
Cheers,
Chris

Chris, don't worry it will sit in your outbox until is is opened at the other end.
