TWM Components Quick Action System Gas Cap
« on: October 10, 2018, 03:04:16 pm »
Looking for help. I have a 1/4 turn gas cap manufactured by TWM. I went on their website to no avail. But apparently the gas cap comes with a steel or galvanized spring that  corrodes. I  went to the local hardware store last season and purchased a galvanized spring, and it is shot already. So it has been replaced once.
Has anybody gone out on there own and purchased a SS replacement spring?I have measurements for the spring, but if someone has a P/N and source, it would be great.
Other than this issue, I like it much better than the C14 OEM cap.

Got off my lazy butt, and did the McMaster Carr thing. For anybody else out there with the same gas cap the stainless steel spring p/n at McMaster is:    1986K237
