View Full Version : Gas cap question

02-19-2014, 8:59 PM
I have a Paughco tank the catalog says uses 36 to e73 cap. Question is do any of you guys know what the diff is between that cap and l73 to 82 caps? Seems stupid but its driving me freaking nuts I can't find the difference.

Well, I only know of two types for Harley stuff, cam style and later model screw in and the difference is obvious. There is also the bayonet lugs but I thinks that just for Britt tanks.

Yep, I only know of the two Arby mentioned.

There seems to be a difference in how the caps cam closed. The actual cam blades look different from the later caps.

The above site shows the various caps.
