Post pics of purple cap. I assume this is an online order part, so it's not like you could just thread it on and actually see if it fits...

Go to junk yard, buy mitsu oil cap, insert into anus valve cover. There's your answer.


It's only $10 anyways.

Mitsus use a silly 1/4 turn butterfly thing under the oil cap instead of threads.
