    Wanted 3-prong oil filler cap or just 3-prong bit

    The little screw in my filler cap sheared and the 3-prong bit is now at the bottom of my sump!

    Magnet on a piece of string to get the remains back out?

        Caps are very rare. Mine did same, but luckily bits didn't into the sump.
        I considered changing the cam cover to a 2 prong version then found a rare 3 prong cap in good condition from an internet scrappy in Holland.

          ISTR that the 3-prong filler cap (601761) is the same as a Triumph Herald/Vitesse fuel filler cap.

            I think I tried that Internet search route too. In the end I succeeded by just putting in the part number as stated in Google, and found a cap. It took a few months.
            The car originally came with a weird looking cap, then someone gave me a 3 prong one, but that one broke in the centre and stopped tightening.


            I wonder if Tony White has one, he seems to have everything
