    Hi guys.
    So I bought a new fuel tank for my Capri ( carb tank for MK3) from Capri gear. I got one of the first ones a few years back.
    I got it out of the box the other day to fit the new sender unit and to paint it and realized I need some other fittings and seals.
    I got a new seal for the sender unit when I bought the sender.
    My problem is I can't get a new seal for the filler neck, or the seal and valve which is fitted to the tank.
    I stupidly binned my old tank which I could of removed the parts from.

    Can anyone help sourcing these parts please ? I think I did see the roll over valve seal on eBay but no valve or filler neck seal anywhere.

    Thanks
    Andy

    Ok thanks. I did check that tech article but the link takes you to a 62ltr fuel tank.

    Yes I did try Martin but he wasn't there/no answer.

    Cool thanks I've found them. Are they definitely a direct replacement?

    I'll try Martin again. I did get the tank and sender from him. Just not had chance to try again. Hopefully he may see this and confirm if he has them or not.
