Hi guys, getting towards the end of the build on the swedish mini I've been working on for the last 3 years!
Can someone tell me what fuel cap i need, the cap needs to lock on the outside of the filler neck, everything i seem to find locks on the inside

tack för hjälpen!

Pictures of your filler neck. As it does not sound like original.

Canadian Minis had outside grip gas caps. Seven Enterprises sells them for $22 plus shipping. Part number BHH0178. Also available at several places under part number BHH178 for early MGB and midgets.

99% sure its standard, no odd welds on the tank, I'll get a pic at the weekend
