    Hey I'm cheap as hell,,, but the TW gas cap isnt... help

    So I got my hands on an old TW and it is in great shape with the exception of the gas cap seal.... I have a split in the seal and I was wondering what (if any) advice you guys may have that helps me avoid buying a new gas cap. I got to imagine someone has found a replacement seal rather than spend a $100 on the cap.
    Also this may sound stupid but if I do have to go with a new cap, does it come with its own key or does the cylinders get swapped?

    I think you could try and make one out of an old tube. I just disabled my gas key locks and have no regrets. It's so much easier to fuel and I doubt anyone will mess with the tanks in any way.

    There is a Kubota generator fuel tank gasket that works well. I will bring the number of the part in the next time I am at my "TW parts bin". They cost around 8 bucks.

    I replaced one of mine with the Generac generator cap, It was about $20.00 with shipping. I really like it.

    This one fits the older (larger) caps and was $8 at the Kubota dealer.


    This pic shows it installed upside down tho. I changed it to ribbed side towards the cap on my '95 and haven't had any problems in 4 years.

    What'd you do to disable them?

    Simple fix. Remove the two screws on the underside of the cap and remove the locking bar. Put it back together and no more lock.
