#1 SOVY Reservoir tops

Reading with interest the threads on OBL and the factory fit 3.8 regarding the reservoir tops I checked my car 860593 dispatched in June 62 some 75 cars before the bulletin and mine has the round white tops SOVY UK made in England with the same two patent numbers as shown on the black tops 923216 / 923782 I always assumed they including the bottles were original could this be some sort of run out change or are they replacements.

The dates of the Service Bulletins do not correlate directly with the car manufacture date unless they include the car numbers. Quite possible your caps are original but in-service replacement is more likely. They were problematic with aluminium corrosion and rotting corks being common. No way of knowing I'm afraid.
