    Does anyone know the brand(s) used, and also the appearance of the OEM radiator caps?

    I'm personally most interested in the original radiator caps on the mid-'60's V6 CJ-5, but it would be interesting to know which ones were used during other time frames as well, if anyone happens to know what they were.

    That would make sense given that certain other "accessory" V6 engine parts like the oil bath air cleaner are AC. I wondered though if maybe Kaiser Jeep had a contract with Stant or another manufacturer to supply their radiator caps.

    This is the AC "Roto-Safe" cap I'm using currently. I'm sure it's not the original type that came on the Jeep, but it is at least generally period-correct, and the RC-119 was recommended at that time for the Dauntless. Mainly, I just like it!
