    Default Maybach Cover Engine Cap wheel

    Nice ground dug Maybach Engine component.

    The logo is still in a decent condition, the Tiger had six of these caps..

    Please scroll down to: Air Cleaners - Tiger I Information Center - The Maybach Engine

    You can clearly see the six caps with the Maybach logo on them. See the original gold Maybach logo.

    This isn't a fuel cap, but a "Rocker Cover Retaining Hand Wheel" engine part

    The rocker covers are the cast covers on each cylinder bank that cover the valve gear, the Maybach being overhead cam.

    This hand wheel retains the smaller panel that is part of the larger cover.

    You remove the covers to inspect and adjust the valve tappet clearances.

    So there you are..
