Hi Did Newark auto jumble today and got ourselves one of These for Irenes Plover. Does anyone know what type thread it is and can you get an insert to go onto our existing tank or is it a case of getting one made up and welding it on? Ours only cost 10 lol.

Others may correct me, but I think the Plover petrol tank has a plastic filler cap. The cap you describe looks like the screwed cap used on pre AMC Falcon/Cruiser bikes. Sandy

Filler cap

Yes the Plover used a push fit plastic cap with an "O" ring seal, it is next to useless, shrinks with age and distorts,
In the past i have bought an old scrap Falcon tank from another bike and cut off the filler neck , welded it to the Plover tank and used the screw top, not original, but a considerable improvement,
