    Not sure if they are exact matches or if they mount the same way, but Bevel Heaven sells these aluminum ďgas tank buttonsĒ that look about right.

    Henk , I came across the same problem and actually wanted the plastic version as that is what I have on some of my Carbon racing tanks. I could not find anything but found these as a cheap option. The thread is perfect , the length is too long and of course the shape is different. I was going to fit them on my little lathe and modify a few sets. However if you want originality these will not be any good to you.............however they will work. Easy to do.

    Yes those will do the job... a small and nice grove matching the rubbers.. and you will not cut your fingers on the sharp ALU ones...

    Just made a few fotos of my 851 CF NOS unit, with what i belive has it's original Bobbins (black ALU w Rather sharp edges)...Im not able to upload any pictures anymore for some reason ??... Henk send me you mail address via PM and ill send fotos to you ..

    Will these do? Used 6061 instead of 7075 which would be overkill.
    Pm your address and iíll get postage cost.

    Well basically they are the same. I checked out postage. Tracking $35, non tracking $25, as a letter $3-4. So hereís the deal. The ashes are on, your lot are down, miracles can happen. Now iím not into cricket, but how about if you win the ashes iíll send you them for nicks. If not, you cough up $8 and iíll post them as a letter.
