One of the questions that arises on these type of carb caps, is… does it work with both liquid and gas posts?  Some models are universal fit and some work only with gas posts.  For draft line cleaning projects to work well, at least in my opinion, the carb cap that’s used needs to be universal.  I’m happy to report that the one I received did indeed work with both liquid and ball lock posts.  Check the product description for current specs.

Check out my Hands on Review of this great carb cap.
