Has anyone on here got one? Picked one up off ebay and have a quick question...
The old fuel cap has a spring mechanism when unscrewing (sort of half turns before starting to unscrew... no idea what aid this is?)... should the alloy version do the same.. Just fitted it and it just screws and unscrews without doing this? All the internal bits look identical??
Yep! - lovely piece of 'bling' isn't it.
I think your old cap's ratchet must be shot. With both of mine, 'old' black plastic one and 'new' shiny alloy one, when you get them fully tightened, the top portion then clicks round on the ratchet but when you go to loosen them, the whole cap immediately starts to unscrew with no 'slack' in the process. Hope that makes sense too, .
