Real Monza Cap?

I got this Monza cap with my partial build and now think that it's not an FFR supplied unit. It has a sealing lid and the mustang gas cap will not fit underneath. I also noticed that the flange is not pre-drilled.



sealed


I looked on Breeze and Finish Line, but not the same...

Does anyone know what this mates up to, if not the stock mustang gas cap flange? It's a shame, cause I just cut a new stock filler tube and installed it...

Cheers,

Jim

Wink Correct cap

Keep the filler tube flange under the body with spacers to set screw on cap height to clear flip cap. I also shortened the center bolt and mounting boss in flip cap. You drill and countersink a six hole patern slightly outboard of flange centerline. Call it custom preperation before instalation.

You will probably have to mod your plastic fuel cap by cutting out the center where the bolt head touches it. I had to do mine for clearance.

I believe it is outlined in the manual. You can also use a cap from a Dodge Viper. It has to be the OE one from the dealer.

As said above, mount the flange below the body. I used about 5/8 inch spacers. My cap is from Breeze but should be available locally. It eliminates the need to modify the stock cap and removing the cap for fueling.

Joe, It's a Perma Cap. The only # I see on the cap is D347-1. I did a quick search and it looks like Auto Zone may handle them. Al

The part number for the Dodge Viper gas cap is 04848132 at your local Chrysler dealer.

Looks just like mine did on my MK-I. Use the template in the manual to drill the holes and shorted the bolt in the middle of the cap to provide clearance for the Mustang gas cap. I thought about using the Viper cap, but the local Dodge dealers wanted $30 for Viper cap and cutting the bolt was FREE.

Cutting a notch in the mustang cap is also free.

Oh, thanks guys.. I see it now.

The fact that it was not pre-drilled had me suspicious. I don't mind the extra work; kinda what I'm in it for... But I was concerned that it was something special (line the flow through or Aero cap) that required another installation requirement.

Thanks for all your support...

John, your picture was worth a thousand words... thanks for taking the time.

Cheers,

Jim

Same here. The base came without holes. Don't forget to countersink to holes if your using flush mounted screw heads. The base will also unscrew from the cap itself. I remember the Z Racing guys made a nice recessed gas cap and trim ring kit back then.
