Gas Cap
« on: 25 July 2006, 05:44 PM »
I just got a '73 450SE, The previous owner stated that the gas cap wasn't orginal. The cap that is on it now is the standard non-breather type found on nearly every vehicle from the 70's. My question is does this vehicle need a breather type gas cap because its fuel injected?

I figure that a member of this site will know the answer to this question. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Martin
