Gas cap
#1
Hey guys, recently my gas cap broke.... Went to fill up and even I went to put cap back on, all it did was spin! Was wondering if there was a way to repair this as it is the original cap, or if someone can repair it for me. Thanks in advance!

Post a picture of the backside and maybe we can help. Maybe the pop rivets broke.

The very center part, the part with two tabs, is what spins..... It looks as if the rivets are intact

here it is

If you can wait a week or so I'll send you the one off of my 72. I removed the emissions and had to get a vented cap. I'm moving so it's boxed up but it's in great shape and stamped with FoMoCo.

The center is riveted, has a crimped slot that it sets in. most likely the rivet is loose, or the crimped slot is stripped. It can be fixed but rutkak has a better deal but don't toss it as someone can repair it and use it on a driver.

Sweet man! Let me know, and I will get you a shipping label sent as well, that way we don't have to pay for shipping. I love my boss!
