Expansion tank cap

Ordered one form BA a while ago but seems wrong size, no pushing down or pressuring. Does anyone know if there's an equivalent to buy at local auto parts???

Thanks ahead

There isn't much pushing down required to put it on. it just easily twists into place. Is it letting coolant out of the expansion tank at temperature?
It looks like the correct one to my eyes. It matches mine anyways.

yea looks right but does not pressurize. It should push down some to twist. The one sent me says g1050 on it, its about 1/2" shy of inner lip on overflow tank. The one they sent me twist and no seal..... bought an RRC locally and seems to pressurizes system.

It's always nice to be able to find things locally. Get it when you need it. I have a Tuffy box full of ignition components, fuses and relays because my local auto parts store is pretty small and doesn't stock much.
Glad you found the right cap. Weird that the AB one didn't fit right.
