    Oil Cap Gasket MIA

    Ive noticed that the oil has been coming out from around the oil cap, leaking from where the ski is thrown around on the sea

    I looked inside the cap and it looks like there should be some kind of gasket there

    So i looked on the Polaris parts listings (Im learning K447) and found that part 7 is missing


    Can i make this part out of a bit of rubber or use a O ring for it?? maybe even some sort of foam ring

    thanks
    Neil

    You can get rubber gasket material at a home/hardware store. Look in the plumbing section - usually in 5" x 5" sheets, red or black. I know Home Depot and Lowes sell it. Use a socket or something round that has the right diameters and cut around them.


    Edit: Didn't see your location - I'm guessing you don't have Home Depot or Lowes there!

    You can certainly make your own.

    Just use a material that won't degrade with constant exposure to oil. Material that is rated for gasoline should work fine.

    your local tractor store should have loads of rings that will fit that ,

    honestly if it got it tight it should not matter ,

    rubber sheets will work as well
