I received this as an email, can anyone help? -Kevin

Greetings from AFRICA !

Hi Guys,

Been absorbed in your great site for a while now. Keep up the good work.
In the early 90s a friend of mine amputated the front engine of his 337D and in its place built a helicopter-like nose with the intention of using it for some serious rally flying.(He represented South Africa at the world champs in Spain)
Anyway... to get some sort of performance on the remaining donkey he went on a weight saving campaign, threw out all the hydraulics and bolted the gear down.Ended up with a 15' cabin with 6 seats in stretch out club seating comfort and 110 knots block. Unfortunately he died in an motoring accident in 95.
I have taken over the project and have been busy since 97,re-engining and retracting the gear again.

I need some help locating the bung type fuel caps ( these just float around in the filler holes having shrunk with age.)

If anyone can offer some solution to this problem, please let me know.

Mastering the sky.
