In reply to # 1501100 by 70tbolt Looks like the part # might be ZKC1559 (for California) based on one of the parts books. Unfortunately can't find it online anywhere. Are there any superseded parts list?

Thanks
Geoff

This?

Checked.

ZKC1559 comes back with "out of stock, ready to reorder" at Canleys.

There's another number 725220 that's also listed for the same application.

Doug,
The page you posted with the parts diagram shows ZKC1559 ends and 725220 starts at the break FM 40001. Cars before that use ZKC1559. Cars after that use 725220. They are not shown as interchangeable in that listing. Since Geoff's fuel cap is obviously not working with the easily available part, I suspect they really aren't interchangeable.
All the best,
Paul

Oh well, back to the neoprene until something comes available.

It might be a good idea to swap caps with one that has an easier to obtain rubber seal.

Thanks for all the replies! I guess it is time to bite the bullet and get a different cap.
