    Sometimes it's the little things. Like chains on radiator caps, or tin cups on your master cylinders.

    I got this cap from @65swb45 a few months ago.

    Yes, the big cap for 83? and earlier radiator is 16401-50010. Comes with chain.

    Google search also brings up a 16401-50010-72, with a slightly different price?

    Unfortunately, the gas cap of same vintage has no chain in the provided hole.

    I've not seen a new cap with chain either. This radiator is NIB.

    Where are you buying them? Every cap Ive bought is without chain.

    The caps with chains are very hard to find today.

    Did an 81 FJ40 have a chain originally? I thought it didn't

    HUH? Part number please.

    EDIT: Nevermind: 16401-41021 is NOT STANT manufactured. This is the one on the radiator above that @Racer65 posted.

    The radiator and cap are manufactured by T.RAD.

    STANT is NOT a supplier to the parts stream for LC's. T.Rad has historically made all caps for the LC radiators.

    Was told chain from 16401-50010 could be removed and installed on earlier cap.

    As far as I know, 1981 did not come with a chain. The older caps pictured above did come with chains and are available at any Toyota dealership. Part number 16401-50010

    Funny that this comes up today. My dad called me and told me he lost the fuel cap on the 65 FJ45 and he wants me to find one with a chain. As @FJ40Jim says they don't come with a chain but does anyone have the part number for the factory gas cap?

    Crap a visit to McMaster Carr would probably solve the chain issue.

    Amazing. That part number supersedes to the 16401-50010 for $18.70 with a chain. :lol:

    If you buy a new radiator, there is no place to hook the chain.

    Correct. The 16400-49356 is a supersession of 16400-61030. Neither had locations for the chain to hook onto.
