A few years ago I lost two fuel caps in a row and I still have no idea why. I had one remaining from a stored belly tank which I took to a local machine shop and the owner created an exact copy.

I'd hazard a guess at a marine shop, they do carry the one's fitted to my Lightwing..........................Maj...024_cool.gif.7a88a3168ebd868f5549631161e2b369.gif

Thank's Maj,tried that,but all they had was a new marine plastic cap & flange which would mean removing the old alloy flange,& that's glassed into the tank ,so I'll probably get one machined up as Mr Drifter USA suggests.Cheer's.
