So far you have not posted anything that shows how you "got screwed so bad." It looks to me like you got what you paid for - - a well used 928, and you even drove it home. Perhaps the seller is...

Then perhaps it has to do with the redesign of the pawl. The later version that I have replicated in aluminum is a bit taller than the early version. Even then, however, the difference in height of...

I don't know for sure, Randy, but I think it has to do with the longer key. Then, I don't know much about that either such as when it started. Either cap will fit any 928, I am pretty sure.

Jeff, I have an intact pawl from an early cap, so if you send me your cap I can probably fix it. If it is only the pawl the charge will be $45 shipped. If something else is involved it will be a...
