Broken Fuel Cap
« on: September 28, 2010, 05:01:58 PM »

After reading posts about the cracks in the plastic fuel caps I decided to replace mine after haul-out later this week.  thought it would make a good winter project.  Unfortunately when we went to top off the tanks a 1/4" piece came out of the bottom of the cap (I hope it just happened!).  I covered the old cap with a couple layers of duct tape and ordered a new plastic replacement for a temporary fix.  I want to replace the thing with a stainless unit.  In one of the posts somebody recommended getting a 1 1/2" stainless unit.  Is there a particular brand or size that fits well and is easy to install?

Mark : The ID of the fuel fill hose is 1 1/2".  There are all kinds of stainless units that are out there and numerous posts on this topic. 
Just make sure that the unit you select will cover the old holes on the deck.   The installation is straight forward and I did it with no info from previous owners - took about 2 hrs by myself!  A few thoughts
