flip top gas cap

Country flag

I ordered a flip top chrome gas cap from Moss. Very neat looking. Tow questions:
1. Will the California emissions nozzle fitted to the gas pump fit this cap?
2. What is the general consensus regarding the look? I have kept may BJ8 very original but I like the look on the Healeys I have seen that have them.

What is the part number you ordered from Moss? My quick search of the Moss site showed only one for a Mini (117-462)?

I also like the look, I found an original polished aluminum Enots Aston cap from the '50s for my BN6 that I'm planning to install. The California emissions nozzle will fit mine with no problems.

The California emissions nozzle fits my non-plated, non-locking Aston aluminum one. I have to hold the nozzle up so the bellows makes a seal though.

Looks like the same cap that came with my Cobr* replica kit. Pay attention to the orientation of the cap to the body, it was critical to have it "just so" on the Cobr* or it would hit the body when open.

I think it's an awesome look on the Healey....
