40 Lincoln Zephyr gas cap

Recommended Posts

I stupidly forgot my gas cap at the gas station. Went back and it was gone. Anyone know where to find  a replacement?

 

Thanks, Rick.

I believe that the Zephyr used the same gas cap as the Ford and Mercury. There are some for sale on E-Bay and most of the Ford parts vendors have them.

Rick,

         As per the Lincoln parts book ( 1946)  The gas cap  part # is 11A-9030.  This a Ford #. Several Ford parts suppliers  carry this

cap. Check with our club vendors on this website, also.

         Don't feel bad about this , just about everyone has done this at least one time. Last year I laid the cap to my '38 LZ on the pavement

under the left rear wheel while gassing up, as I always do. This time I was distracted by anothe motorist asking questions, as usual. I drove

over the cap, didn't feel the "bump" ,  Arrived at the car show and heard , "Larry ,where's your gas cap?"  I was lucky! I returned to station found the

cap up on the pump. After about an hour of filing,sanding and polishing; it looked good as new.   Rather long story, but.........          Larry

When I first got my 40 Mercury, I left the cap on the top of the pump. The gas cap fairies carried it away. I bought a locking gas cap and put the key on the ring with my ignition key. Now I can't drive off without it, the key must stay in the lock until the cap is locked and I can't start my car without the key.

And you cannot drive the car until you fuel it, BUT you cannot find the keys! Reminds me of the time the dog ate my homework.
