go to advanced, get a new fuel filter and the puerlator one has a new cap on it, it takes a half" drive socket, easy to get on&off. still has a fin's so you can use pliers to get it of as well


$24 i think

You an get a billet filter cap. They are all over ebay. But I just use a fram filter comes with a new cap attached to the filter. Total cost is about 20 bucks at your local parts store.

Dont be offended if I laugh a little "the look" isnt the fuel bowl hidden under the engine cover? So who would see it? I also think there is a reason why the lid is plastic, so when you cross thread the cap you dont destroy the fuel bowl cap. Thats also the advantage of the OBS fuel system, you only have 8psi in the fuel bowl and not the whole system pressure.

I do agree, the 99+ trucks have 70 psi on that cap, Whereas the OBS fuel bowls are at the most only 8psi from the low stage of the fuel pump at WOT it will probably drop to almost 0psi to meet the demand of the motor. So you have alot more pressure to contend with. A billet cap would not be a bad thing, just be forwarned about cross threading the fuel bowl.
