8v71 oil fill cap
« on: October 15, 2013, 06:15:04 AM »
Howdy!

The other day when adding oil, some bonehead (me) somehow lost the oil filler cap.  Anybody know where I can get one?

I just did a search for truck oil fill cap. Quite an assortment. What kind do you need?

Btw, how you been? Haven't heard much from you these days. You still Elvising? Are you all full timing yet?

Cheers,

John

Is it a Shaw plug (expandable rubber plug) or a cap,Napa can order either, a plumbing supply is a good outlet for the Shaw  type

Hi John,

Been doing well.  As usual in my life, I make a plan but somehow wind up 180 degrees in the opposite direction...

No more Elvis in my world... Took a corporate job working for Englert Leafguard as General Manager of the Charlotte market.  Now it's all work and no play for me.  When the job was offered, I just couldn't pass up the opportunity.  I can't seem to get out of Charlotte to save my life. LOL

Sad part is there isn't much time for bussing these days.  We did take her out the past weekend for an overnight, but a day here and there is about all the time I've got.
