Which is the correct cap,  the one with small ears or completely round with raised letters? Also if its the latter can they be restored and by whom?  Some surface rust on the face and handles and the inside brass breather has what apperas to be mold looking substance of some type or has just discolored white................Looks like one of those science experiments we did way back in grade or Jr. high school!
Thanks for the help

The original correct assembly line were completely round (No ears)with raised script. I will see if I can find a picture.

No it does not and you can purchase it at PepBoys and Harbor Freight. Works great and I use it a lot when re-conditioning/restoring parts. Here is a before/after example:

Is the 'Evaporust' the same chemical compound as 'Metal Rescue'??

Evapo rust is the best thing I have ever seen or used. I leave it in overnight and it looks like new.

I just had my original gas cap soaking for 5 hours hours and its amazing how great it now looks. I was going to shoot before and after photo's but the camera's busted!
I rinsed the cap in cold water real well, shook it to get excess water out then heavily coated it with Boshield and will see how it looks tomorrow after drying.
Great stuff
