I picked up this little genset at an estate sale last week. It was seized and appeared to have been at least partially submerged. The engine is now free and with the exception of a fuel line, repairing of a hole in the tank, finding a replacement reed valve and locating a fuel cap it is ready to run!

The fuel cap is brass/bronze and about 2" in diameter with two little ears for gripping. If anyone has an idea for a source of this fuel cap I'd appreciate hearing from them. Also I need a piece of reed valve shim steel, I've seen .004 as the thickness but I have no idea where to find it. Thanks in advance!


Here is a pic of the little genset for which I need the fuel cap:

Victor, On the shim stock, My FIRST place to look would be McMaster-Carr. Or, If you have a local machine shop close by, I might hit them up. Good luck, and neat find.
