        Ken there is an article in the MAN. I’ll look later to see if I have that issue. It may show you how to disassemble.

              Radiator cap rebuild
              by Loubob
              I want to install a motormeter in a repro 1930/31 cap. Does anyone sell the inner cap parts necessary to do the rebuild? Anyone offer this service? Suggestions?
              I don't want the locking cap. Thanks! Loubob...

              29 Repro gas cap question
              by fred93
              The original gas cap on the 29 Tudor that I am restoring would not tighten down. The threads looked okay but when I tried to tighten it down it just kept turning. So I bought a repro from Brattons and when I went to put it on the gas tank I seemed to have a tough time of it. Those fine threads are a pain (I guess that is why Ford changed it on to 30-31 cars)

              Anyway, I got it to fit (I...

              How do you take an original Eaton stainless gas cap apart for restoration. I have the 30/31 style with the stainless cap pressed on the inner cadium part. It seems like I have seen an article somewhere but I can't find it.

              Quail cap problems, still
              by thom
              I posted two or three months ago that I had a problem with the quail cap on the radiator of our '28 coupe. I thought I had it fixed but not so. I suppose I will order a replacement. My big fear is that the neck will twist off of the radiator when I try to remove the present cap. Any suggestions?

              Quail doesn’t fit
              by DBaldwin
              Hugh purchased a brand new quail from vintique over a year ago second he had purchased a brand new radiator from brass works. Today as im wrapping up his restoration I couldn’t get the new cap to fit properly on the radiator thinking it was a simple adjustment with the two screws on the new cap I played with it for about ten minutes, finally I removed the screws and the small tabs all together no...

              Radiator cap won't fit
              by gpowers
              Recently just bought my first Model A. I have searched the forum and didn't find any posts on this topic so forgive me if this has already been answered a thousand times. The radiator cap that was on the car when I bought it was just sitting on the neck and the tabs on the cap were completely rusted off. I figured it would be no big deal so I ordered a cap from Macs and when it came in, it wouldn't...

              What did Ford use originally for the radiator and gas caps on a 1928 and 1929 Model A?

              Stock gas cap location 56 F100
              by Dennis56
              My 56 F100 has the stock gas cap on the Driver’s side of the truck. I see lots of pics of the 56 with the gas cap on the Passenger side. Why is that ?
