Oil filler caps for a Austin 7 car can be made to fit, repro ones are available on the Net.
The butterfly would not catch on the rivets in the tank filler neck. I replaced them with
short brass pegs held in place with a 8BA countersunk screw. Petrol cap will require a
vent hole.
Thanks to Frank Dolman London Douglas  MCC for putting me on to this.

Hi Peter
They were purchased from A7 components.
www. a7c.co.uk the two I purchased were brass and not plated as shown in their parts list.
They are listed under oil system -  oil filler cap coil. Part number BA130.
Hope this helps
Keith Hartley
