Title: Gold star fuel cap
Post by: big steve on 18 December, 2017, 17:47:54
I am looking for a new rubber seal for a gold star cap I can find lots of caps but not the rubber seals.
I have looked on eBay and some of the new caps do not have a seal on them.

I had the same problem and in the end just bought some viton rubber sheet and cut my own with scissors.
e.g.

Yep, I did that....it was too thick!
The viton comes in a range of thicknesses. I found 0.5 mm worked OK
