Have you tried the new Drafts feature yet? I just lost a long message today and learned my lesson. It is a good idea to save a draft of any long post you are writing. You can then just keep writing and keep saving a draft, knowing you have a backup if there is a glitch. The draft is automatically deleted when you post the message.

I have a cap (Its not for sale) but with a magnifying glass I can make out
WESTWOOD  there is a firm still making garden tractor spares but there are references to WESTWOOD vintage caps on google
the only other clue is a partial (or full!)  number I think is  291941
it has two arms inside to mach the tank pegs and a chain on a bracket
if you find a source PM me as mine is a little rusty inside :-)

Have a look at the eBay link below. According to the seller the fuel cap is 2 1/2 inches OD. The internal diameter is 2 7/16 inches. The measurement across the locking plate is 1 7/8 inches. That seems to be very close to what we need for post war bikes. The locking plate may need a bit of tweeking but with any luck it could fit. Worth a try for those who are desperate for a fuel cap.
OK I know its off a Harley but I have washed my mouth out.

They look like they may fit my Aero too.
Does anyone know if the oil tank cap need to be vented, or would a non-vented cap work fine?

This cap was made by Westwood Rim and Patents Ltd., from 1928. They were still making a range of caps for tanks, radiators etc in the late 1950s.

Hi Aero

The chap selling these does both vented and non vented in the same style and same price. As far as I know the oil cap on the Aero should be vented unless someone knows different. The two Aeros we have both have vented caps.
