Right in response to you pedants out there I knocked up a Mk2 - after all who sees it except my man when he's filling the tank Very Happy.
I tried wire but the stuff I had was either too stiff or too thin - the rubber belts are perfect.

Just done mine.
At first, I couldn’t see how to remove the cap cover to gain access but it all unclips reasonably easily. I used a small black nut and bolt; the nut fits nicely and is held captive under the spring in the cap cover.
An excellent idea, thanks supershuttle. Thumbs Up It's "bébéchoon", ackcherly, with accents. 'Steve' to my chums.

Thanks - I have this same problem. I have sent payment for the drive belt. Any other bits I need? Or I guess this is all mentioned in the thread Smile

Scott,
As you come from Dorset (the county of my birth) I have posted this morning and chucked my Mk 1 in the envelope, means you won't need crimps just the bolt or nut and bolt through the filler cap itself. Geoff

Did the mod - thanks Geoff!!

Silly question for those that have done this ... when taking the filler cap outer plastic off it reveals a rusty spring inside between two plastic ends. I had to remove this in order to fit a bolt through with a nut. I couldn't see what this spring actually does so have left it out. Any ideas?

I guess I may need to put the spring back in and use a smaller nut and bolt so it sits under the spring?

When you put your filler cap back on and twist to secure it, at the end of travel you should find “springiness” in the cap which I believe is to prevent over-tightening. The spring in question seems to be part of this mechanism.
I used a short bolt and the nut fitted in the recess under this spring. Thumbs Up It's "bébéchoon", ackcherly, with accents. 'Steve' to my chums.

Thanks for the info. This mod has already cost me £1 Smile so I'll simply be careful and not over tighten I think. Otherwise I will need to splash out on a new smaller nut and bolt Laughing

OK - spent £2 on proper size bolt and nut (well 10 of them), fitted the spring back in, much better now.
