I seem to remember seeing the same style cap on an RV so they should be readily available, Lancair maybe?

Send a picture of the ones you have. The company that supplied mine are still in business. I just bought overhaul parts for mine. They changed their phone number. I’ll dig it up if it’s the same cap.

Hi,
where is your O-Ring?
You lost one cap during TKOF, O-Ring is for leakproof and vibration
my idea : buy Spruce whatever same diameter cap and trim alum plate to get your three tabs.

I think that company is still in business? I’m not sure if they have the 3 tab style or not. I’m on a trip. When I get home I’ll get the information posted so you can see what they have in stock. You do need the o-rings to make it fit tight and not leak as Christopher said. You’re also missing a Teflon washer. Making a Spruce cap fit is an option too but Spruce might be buying them from the same source? I’ll get the information up this weekend. I had worn out parts and they sold me everything to rebuild the caps to like new working condition.

These guys build most of the gas caps for experimentals. They provided me with all the parts to rebuild my worn out gas caps. Looks like a place willing to fabricate almost anything?
