I recently picked up a set of 48 to 50 Pan tanks in good condition for my current project. One has a stock cap.The other cap has G.M.E. stamped on the under side bayonet. Looks old and fits well. Any one have any knowledge of this type of cap?
Thanks

Thanks for the info Slim. As I get closer to putting the bike together (this winter)I will most likely contact you if I feel i need an Eaton as i don't have one laying around. Not going for a restoration. Building a mutt pan out of my spares. 55 Fl motor all finished. 57 trans all finished. Stock glide front end with new tubes and lower leg bushings. Cleaning up the 51 frame now. Going for an early 50's Bob Job style.

The tanks are stock. I do have one vented Eaton cap. My oldest tanks are a set of 59/60 and I have run them with no vent caps with no problems. I honestly don't recall if they have the crossover on top as it has been a long time since i built the bike. The GME cap does not appear to be vented so I will be contacting slim down the line. Thanks for the info.

OK now for my dumb question. Is there a simple way to tell if the cap is vented? I am ready to learn some thing I should have known a long time ago. Thanks guys

Thanks for the pics. Just what my dumb ass needed. The GME cap I have is vented after all as it looks just like your Eaton photo. Plus i can blow through holes on the perimeter of the cap and feel air coming through the center of the bayonet.
I have installed one of your floats in my Linkert M 74B for my other bike. Great results. Thanks!!
