Default Champion 2J Outboard Gas Cap

Hi Everyone,

I recently purchased a Champion 1946 2J Outboard 4.2 horsepower.

I am still working on getting it running but I know I need a new gas cap. The existing gas cap is too small and wont actually screw in. (the previous owner tried to make it "good enough" with lots of teflon tape.....it doesnt really work)

Does anyone know where I can get a gas cap for this outboard? Or is there some other type of solution for a working gas cap?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Gregg

There used to be a member of the Antique Outboard Motor
Collectors Club that had a lot of gas caps for old outboards, but he has
retired from selling parts.
You can post an ad in their "Classifieds" section. Maybe someone bought
his inventory.
Here's a link to the club website. https://aomci.org/
Good luck with your motor.

Its very similar. I think that is the 1J. The 1j is a "wind the rope start". the 2J is the "deluxe version" that has a recoil rope. Otherwise looks very similar.

Thanks for the link to aomci.org. I read something about the parts guy you spoke of. I think his name was Jimoutbboardguy......or something like that. And he wasnt showing on the roster as a user anymore.

But I will try posting in the classifieds.

Thanks.
