Hi all

hopefully someone can help me on this one!

There a few few oil points on the T with the little spring caps , I have one missing but unable to work out what they are called to enable me to look for replacements they are abou t3/8 of an inch in diameter.

I have tried several names and can't figure it !!!

If you look closely at the photo Dan posted, there is little hope of getting any oil into the oil cap on the main spring leaf, because it's 180 degrees off! It's good insurance to refer to the Ford Service book when installing these oil caps for proper placement.
