Does anyone know of an aftermarket number for a gas cap for a 76 Wing? One that is available, that is...

Thanks in advance,
WL

Is it broken, not working? You can spray carb cleaner and soak it to clean out the vent hole.

I cleaned out my gas cap valve a few years ago when it started making that loud moaning noise after being parked with carb. cleaner. I did have to do it twice, but it has been working fine ever since.

I'm presently soaking it and one from my old 78 in Seafoam. Hoping that loosens things. I was wanting a new one just to be done with it. I know things like rad hoses and belts have aftermarket vendors (Like Dayco, Gates etc.) Just didn't know if there was one for gas caps.

Thanks for the replies.
