- Availability: In Stock
You are purchasing one set of European made reproduction nickel-plated EDM Eaton oil & gas tank caps for 45 models from 1937 to 1941. With the knurling detail on these, they would be "correct" for 1937 to 1941 on civilian model W and G Servicar models. However, these will fit the bungs on any 1937-1973 stock factory tanks. Oil cap is non-vented and it is shorter than the gas cap which helped keep riders from swapping the vented cap with the non-vented which would cause vapor lock. These are restoration quality with the accurate short 3/16" knurl, but these also have the rolled lip at the bottom of the cap which makes these pretty much indistinguishable from an original from that era. These are done in very small production runs.
The nickel caps are incredibly hard to get. This is the first set we've been able to get in over a year. We do have a chrome set of these on another listing for less if that is what you prefer or believe is correct for your bike. It is assumed that a nickel finish was correct for the earliest models though some original paint bikes have turned up with nickel caps as late as 1941.
Please study the photos for height detail of the caps and knurls as I realize this is important to many restorers. These have the EDM "Keystone" or "Anchor" hallmark stamped within. These come standard with cork gaskets. We do sell rubber and leather gaskets in our store if you want to purchase a set and have them shipped with your new caps.
Used on many civilian models over the years: W, WL, WLD, WLDR, WR, Servicar. Easy item to lose and hard to find originals these days. Obviously will fit WLA and WLC, but not a correct military finish as originals were OD green with an "oil" decal.
