Questions: Hello. I bought an after market radiator for my 46 Willys CJ2A and it came with a 13lb. cap. Should I get a 4lb cap or will the 13lb one be ok??? Have driven it several times and it is working fine.

We have not hand any issues with the supplied caps by the manufacturer.

Questions: I have a '48 CJ-2A with a bottom mounted radiator. I've had trouble getting a replacement radiator cap. The inter-neck is 1-1/2" across, the outer-neck is 2" across and the depth is 1" from the bottom of the screw on cap, is the item #810391 the correct cap?

If you are bottom mount yes this should be it. Make sure it looks the same as yours from the photos.

It is referring to how the radiator mounts. Either bottom mounted to tabs on the crossmember or side mounted to the grille.

Questions: I have a 1953 M38A1. What exactly do I measure to find out which cap I need? Also, I have seen 7lb and 4lb caps sold as NOS. How do I know which is proper? Which is standard for your M38A1 replacement radiator (805825)? Thank you.
Question By: rb6874 on Jun 15 2013 12:00 AM
We typically use a 4lb cap for the 4-134 engines. You just need to measure your neck size to confirm yours.

Questions: I have a 1950 Sedan Delivery with what I think is the original radiator. It looks like the radiator cap doesnt seat correctly. It looks like the depth of the radiator neck is 1 deep where as the rubber seals on the cap only measure 3/4. So when the motor heats up, the cap doesnt seal and it just goes out the overflow hose. I checked other aftermarket caps and they also measure 3/4. Does this sound correct or am I just missing something?

Sounds like you need part number: 648746 if you have the small style. This part number is for the 2-7/8 neck.
