Looking for help!!! fuel filler cap


Recommended Posts

Hello I’m new to the kit car game and recently have purchased my first RH I’m very happy with it,  there are a few things I’d like to change upgrade etc as you do. Im handy with a spanner but sourcing parts seems to be my nemesis. Her is my issue My fuel filler cap is tired and the rubber is perished making it look untidy. I would like some advise or direction on finding a replacement please 🤞. The diameter is 105mm

It's the original filler cap supplied with 2B kits. Someone will probably have am unused one kicking around which will be easier than changing to something different.

Hi Andy, welcome to the club.

I had one of these on my 2B and it always leaked when you accelerated hard.  I re-sited mine and replaced it with one from Car Builder Solutions - www.carbuilder.com

It's worth having a look on their website, they might do something that will fit with minimal modifications.

Thank you, you have confirmed my thoughts on the matter. Yes it looks like a lot of work has gone in to aligning and cutting the metal etc. I was thinking last resort would be putting tread plate over the hole and starting again.  Hopefully in time one will pop up in my search 👍🏻
 

I have foind

the exact match it’s actually a fuel cap Yamaha use on there yzf models managed to purchase  A new one from Amazon for £20 😅. Thank for the input guys much appreciated 👍🏻 I’m sure it won’t be long until I need more help.
