I believe the 1911 thru 1912 radiator cap hinged at the back and had a over center catch at the front. I think the 1913-14 had a thumbnut down through the center of the cap. The 1913-14 cap was pressed metal nickel plated and the earlier caps were cast brass.

If you let me know what style you need I can look and see if i have either type. I know I have a pressed nickle plated cap with the hole in the center for the thumb nut.

Use of the "thumb nut" started in 1914, not 1913.

The radiator cap shown in the photos is the only type cap used by Overland in 1911-13.

A painted radiator shell (should be black) would not have an unfinished brass filler neck and cap.

There was no over-center catch used on Overland radiator caps, so nobody can send you a photo.
