Oil Cap Replacement

Recommended Posts

I pryed up the old oil cap holder with o ring No problem

 

How do I insert the new one. It just wont pop in no matter how hard I push

 

Whats the trick?

Ret -

Have you tried Tri750's method?

“...a pocket screwdriver and patience will get the plastic base out fine.

Clean the residual oil, new o ring and press down with one thumb while you slowly tuck the oring in with the same screwdriver around the perimeter of the plastic base. Just small bites at a time.

It will work in.

 

Pretty cold up there?

I used a socket the same size as the insert, and tapped it in with a mallet. What size you say?, well I don't remember off hand. I also used some EZ Turn to lube up the "O" ring to ease the installation.
