Re: Radiator Cap and Moto-Meter

Hi Kerry,

Congrats on your new purchace...As one option on a motometer/cap you might concider a reproduction...Model A offers both a locking type or screw on cap for motometers, as well as an 8" dogbone...Problem is that the model A caps are 2" dia and I believe your Star will be
1 3/4" so what some members, myself included are doing is to machine a threaded bushing to adapt, If you would like to add a winged base they have them as well...Some model A outlets will have junior motometers with a boyce face and no Ford logo, or at larger swap meets there are usually vendors that will have a black blank faced motometers and can insert a Star-4 orniment which looks nice..I have gotten several at the Chickasha meet...Anyway, lots of posibilities in the wonderful world of reproduction...It is possiable that Frank may have something made up.

Do you have an idea what a Motometer that says Durant is worth? I have one that has been sitting on my desk since 1968

Good to see you Saturday the cap looked way cool on the 29 steel hoping to work something out with you. Ray
