Radiator cap

Cannot find a new radiator cap for my 93 carpenter. It leaks and I'm overheating every 30 miles.

Did you try a truck stop? It is probably not the same as an automobile sized cap.

No. I'm at napa and they are baffled. I'm going there next.

Truck stop may be your saving grace. I am sure I have seen a wall of stuff like radiator caps. The diameter is probably different than on a car. Look at the cap and get the right psi... If there is a limited selection and you have a choice of a lower pressure, and a higher pressure.. go higher and try to find the correct one down the road.

Good. If you have to limp to a Cummins dealer, call ahead and see if they have it first. Then take it slow and have plenty of coolant with you.
