Bayonet caps

Postby NaughtyBits » Sat Apr 08, 2017 11:18 pm

Hello all,
Looking for a few bayonet caps, with guts beyond repair, that anyone might be willing to sell. I know plain ones are available on fleabay, but thought I'd check here first. Looking to fit them with fuel connectors for a race or two.

Thanks & have a good one.

I made some new ones last year, and I have a couple of couple of new caps left that have been drilled but I did not make the bits to complete the innards, after initial demand evaporated. I'm working abroad at the moment but if you are interested you can have the caps, I'm back around the end of the month.

I'm still after the internal bits :P

I think there are more tanks than caps about so it might be hard to find incomplete ones that the owner doesn't hope to resurrect one day.

Good luck.

Oyster,

That might work out great, thanks. Our race is June 3rd & rumour has it we may have a certain someone coming down to grace us with his presence again this year. Maybe I could convince him to smuggle them in somehow? 7 hrs is a long time to fly having a hard time sitting down, though...

Hugz,
I'm sure you're right - just figured it couldn't hurt to ask before going the fleabay route. I've seen Oyster's caps & thought they looked great.

Amazingly the original manufacturer is still in business:

The original caps were chromed brass, but the new ones available now are chromed steel. You need the 2 inch flat topped with no vent hole. The vented ones are for petrol tanks the unvented are for oil tanks that have a breather pipe built in.

I machined a few up and sold a few via eBay. However the cap alone is £22 ish, but I not looked around to see what they cost lately. The last one I made had a stainless cover and looked just like the original.

I made replicas with a dummy valve, which were cheaper, and a fully working model. I have one fully working model left, which I was keeping for myself.

There are a few that are brass with no coating. Rare though.

Yes, I have one on my SD. Bare brass with no chrome.

This is the dummy version. There is a small air vent hole drilled into the diaphragm to allow the tank to vent.

I'm after 1 for a long term resto job that's taken me 3 years so far just to source the right bits.
A bayonet cap of some description would be the final crowning glory for it :P Must be an original one though and not a copy, with or without chrome.
If anyone can help drop me a line

I think it's the Q50.
Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.
