Durant gas caps

Hi Everyone,

There was some interest in Gas Caps again so I cast and finished another 5 . They are the ones that have the "D" in the center, and have the 1 7/8" threads. I think there are pictures from past messages, if not I can put up some new ones. Thanks Mike

Re: Durant gas caps

Hi Mike: The tank on our car seems to have a 2" outside-diameter filler neck with 16 threads per inch.
I don't understand which measurement your 1-7/8" refers to, but do you think your caps would fit on our tank ? Where might I view the photos you mention ? Dave T. for the Cumberland Museum

Re: Durant gas caps

Hey Mike can we get some pictures posted on the forum. Thanks. Also sometime when you get a bit of time a list of items with some pictures of what you guys cast or have cast for Durant products would be nice since you guys don't have a web site to look at.

Re: Durant gas caps

Yes Mike that would be nice. The Butters do list everything in the Graham Paige site they make for those cars, http://www.graham-paige.com/ , but I don't see anywhere they list the better cars made by Durant.

Dave ... aren't all caps the same size for 28 / 29 and screw on ? Steve has the D one on his. Per my list the D bakelite cap fits M, M2, R, 40, 55, 60, 65, 75. However it says chrome cap for 60, 63, 66, 70. Guess the 60 can go either way. Our 30 - 32 Durant's and Frontenac's have painted half twist.

Re: Durant gas caps

Mike,
I could use a gas cap with a D on it as you have shown. You do not list an e-mail or other contact mechanism. Could you please let me know if you still have caps? At what price? It would seem such cap would fit my Model 60 (29).

Re: Durant gas caps

Haven't rec'd it yet. I have to figure on a little extra time. Had to send a check and it will be coming from Canada. Will keep you up to date.
