Fuel cap for my Gas 544

 This summer the original was lost. My local dealer has had no luck finding the correct one. It’s similar to CNH part #9701704 but the catches are much deeper. I found another 544 across town and he has the same tank and fuel cap on his tractor too. I’m adding the pictures. Thanks

Okay, to me the first (old) cap looks like it is missing the gasket, and the second cap is new and has the gasket.

The fuel neck looks normal to me.

Have you tried the standard triple baffle "tall" cap? I can't believe CaseIH is still selling the old "unsafe" ones... Those have been "banned" since the 1970's.

there is a definite difference in the distance of the ear locks to gskt ,has nothing to do with top height for this answer

had the same issue on some case tanks  and td radiators,one ended with a tab 68 chrysler cap

been 20 yrs since using the Ih tank bung repair tool ,IIRC it had to be set different/used carefully across the 20 odd we did

Yes most utilities used a non vented cap.  My dad went though this on his 656.  As you can see in the first picture posted the tube that acts as the vent.  Don't send that cap in!  You will not get it back!  Your best bet is find a used cap off a utility 404, 504, 444, 544, 656 should be correct.

What's this about sending caps in? Where would you send them?

The free gas cap program doesn't want your old cap back.

At one time the gas replacement program was requiring sending the old one in.  Or maybe I am confused CRS.

I had the same problem about 6 months ago on a 504.  They are a different cap from what will fit a B through 1466.  That 504 also had a vent in the neck of the tank. 

IIRC, it was a short cap.

So what did you find that worked?

I just re-bent the tabs in the fuel tank and on the cap to match together.  I would have preferred to replace the cap, but the farmer needed the tractor back in a hurry.

He had brought the tractor in for several other repairs, but the loose fuel cap was an afterthought.
