  • No I have not. Just that they are advertised as vented but there's pressure building up in the tank and when I remove the cap, pressure is released. I've drill a hole in the middle of the cap so there's not pressure now. Not sure what's going on with those caps. Two different styles of "vented caps" that I've tried.

  • Here are the 2 styles of caps that I purchased. Both are "vented" so they say.

    FWIW,

    Gas Cap Exchange Program    Posted 10-06-2023 at 09:49:35 [URL] [DELETE]        [Reply] [No Email]

  • FORD offered a gas cap exchange program for the N's to get a free vented cap in exchange for your original non-vented gas cap. I got one for my 8N 20 years ago but I don't know if CNH still offers this program. Some guys at the time were told by their dealers it was NLA but those dealers just didn't want to deal with it. Some guys just drill a 1/8" hole in their OEM cap too. My vented cap has long since dry rotted the rubber seal so I went back to my original cap. Seems I priced it without the exchange and it was like $45 or more.

    original on left, new vented on right -

  • Re: vented gas cap
  • Would seem to me that the "Warning" label would be unnecessary on a vented cap?

  • Re: vented gas cap
  • Agree. My mistake was buying on Amazon. The description clearly stated "Vented Gas Cap". I went back to that same page on Amazon. The description has now changed. The "vented" is now off the description. There are also many reviews stating this cap is not vented even though the description said it was.

    Live and learn,
