4.0 engine caps on EBay update. They don't work. The radiator is the same, but the oil, dipstick and brake caps are different. I stopped at that point. Anybody want a set of caps for a 4.0 V6? They are on EBay.

I *know* the dipstick is different but are you sure about the brake reservoir cap and oil cap being different? I thought the oil cap is a cover that goes over the OEM cap, like the Radiator and IC reservoir caps/covers are. I KNOW the PS and Brake are replacements although you have to use the o-ring and gaskets from the OE caps.

I only ask because I remember just recently where a guy bought a new set from Shelby and the dipstick wouldn't work. He was beating up on Shelby Parts but they showed his order where HE ordered the wrong set and they gave him a link to JUST the (correct) dipstick handle he needed.

He would'a needed to spend a couple more bucks on a different dipstick handle (something like 19 or 29 bucks, IIRC) but I don't remember him saying anything about the other caps ('cept the IC cap shortage which didn't seem to be a issue for some reason, AGAIN...*IIRC*)

YES

I would not have posted it as being so if it were not so.

I never went for the "Shelby GT Caps" nor the "Shelby GT Wheel Caps" to ME after the adoption of the "S" snake for the SGT with the faux gas cap it seems then a natural extension to place the silver "S" snake wheel caps and the "S" snake engine dress-up kit. That's a consistent and elegant look that's unified and looks OEM. Again that's TO ME.
