There's a post from Alpine Ian about 10 years ago in which he chronicles the (re)discovery of two different throat lengths on radiators, one of which is long enough that some caps won't reach the seat to seal at the bottom. I think he had some Stant part numbers to try. I'm on other things right now and can't spin off to find it, but search or Google search should turn it up...

I don't know if the length is right, but Rock Auto currently has a 7lb cap on closeout for $1.65! Even after shipping, that sounds like a bargain. http://www.rockauto.com/RSS/vehiclef...l=en&html=true

Googling now! Some dimensions if anyone finds anything..



The "correct" Stant 10206 measures differently. Here are the figures on their site. I am assuming this is the same as the one I received in the mail.
