Replacement gas cap-'97 Response

Recommended Posts

saluki87

Hi all.  New here and I have a 97 Response. Great boat, but I lost the gas cap (chain broke and within a few fills I dropped it in the lake).  I cannot find a replacement cap anywhere. Even the dealer, who I really like, has pretty much given up. They claim to have even contacted Malibu about it but I'm not 100% convinced.  Anyway, it's a flush style mounted just above rub rail. 3 1/2 inch flange, 1 3/4 inch ID threads.  I found one at a West Marine that was a really close match but just maybe an 16th of an inch too small.  My only alternative would be to replace the entire assembly but even that won't be easy.  The fuel tank hose is for a 2 inch ID fuel tank hose and all the assemblies I've found so far are made for 1 3/4 ' ID hose.  Seems really strange that it's been so difficult to replace.

Thanks in advance for any help.
