I've done everything I can think of here.... bought a nice repro from Classic Alfa, bent the sheet metal tabs down, used a spacer. Clocked it to max the clamping force. Always get weeping. While it may not look right, do any later model Alfa oil caps swap on and perhaps provide a more positive closure?

I replaced the oil vapor separator with one of the stainless units that were sold a while back. I’ll give those ideas a try as well.

Thank will give that a shot. I only have a few thousand miles on that stainless unit but will check it nonetheless. Without a doubt the old cap fit a lot nicer I’m gonna start there put some hard miles on it and see if I get any weeping.

It has already been done. Well not the discarding part.
