Broken fuel filter cap

I broke my fuel filter cap today. The part that broke of is the top plastic nut. Any ideas on how to get one off? Where can I buy a new one?

I did the same thing. I used a small chisel and EVER so gently tapped it on the edge to spin it loose. I then bought a billet aluminum one, cant remember where from. Good luck!

I second that. Just make sure you have pipe dope or sealing tape for the set screw that comes in the billet cap
