It's old, well made and quite weighty for it's size. Came from my dad's box of very old Land Rover bits. Doesn't seem to match any I can find photos for on eBay. Anyone know?

Just checked an old military series 3 cap here, and it looks nothing like that one.

The size may help.

According to a Google image search, what you have there is PLYWOOD!

Very close Mav. Construction looks the same, bar a couple of small differences. This one is definitely a fuel cap as it's vented (hole in the middle with pin, 3 holes round the edge). It also has a rubber (albeit old) seal.

I'll get measurements when I'm home from work later.

That's too small for a LR under seat fuel tank , I'm wondering if it might be the cap off a LR series hyd. winch tank ?

...or possibly a Morris Minor or early Mini fuel cap :) the edge knurl looks familiar ...

 

cheers
