DT 466 Engine need Radiator cap

I have a 1992 Amtran Gensis 46 passenger bus with a DT 466 engine. My radiator cap needs replacing but I did not know it is so hard to find what cap I need. Does anyone out there know what pressure cap I need? Or where I can get a cap?

Napa has them.
You must be out west, here on the east side they called them "Ward Senator" in 1992.

Good to know.
They're fairly generic and readily available. I like stuff built like these buses.

Quick question on a sort of related note. When adding coolant the other day, I accidentally pulled on what I believe to be the coolant overflow hose and it pulled the fitting out of the stem for the radiator. It appeared to just snap off right at the connection...suggestions on reconnecting? Can you solder this or JB weld or something? Thanks ahead of time for any suggestions.

You should probably have someone solder that back on for you. It's a good thing you caught that, even accidentally. Imagine how bad that could have been on a trip. It shouldn't have pulled off that easily, unless you really smacked it. I think you just saved yourself a breakdown later.

Make sure it's not all corroded or too thin. You might have to solder on an entire new neck. If it is in good shape, a radiator shop should be able to reattach that pretty easily. If you do try to do it yourself, make sure everything is spotless in order to get a good attachment.
