    Looking at the seat on this cap, looks and feels like a embedded washer, started to dig it out, but left it and just added a oring as I had no square shoulder washer that would fit the channel in the screw. Seals, stove works good, may need the lipstick peened and mesh cleaned, did not touch those today. Happy, as the design of the air screw is a early one, although the wording is V2. Bun feet. One in the SRG has the air screw mounted like the other early 96's, not the earliest. I also have noticed that the spanners for my '10, '11 have no markings. Seller made this tin, I need to resolder one hinge.

    Simplest quick fix sealing washer I've found for this early-type lid is to split a suitable size plastic wiring grommet. Carefully split horizontally you can get 2 washers, flat on one side for the screw head, domed on the other to fit neatly into the lid depression and neatly cover the vent drilling.
