I know a bunch of you guys use this product. I purchased the GM kit that was supposed to have all attachments. There was nothing for the V. I called later and asked for the proper attachment. The lady said the part # and I already had it. She said the boss owned a V and double checked the part. I bought it and it doesn't fit. Is there a trick to using this screw on cap? I am losing my mind with this f'in thing. Such a simple concept made so flimsily. My pressure guage leaks and the hose blew off on me once. I had to redo everythiing with proper hose clamps. I need the right cap. Anyone help? Track day May 31st and I need new fluid.

huh, i got the gm cap and it fit no problems the first time...I just got the one cap though, dunno what accessories your talking about...no leaks no problems, I love mine...how much pressure are you pumping it up to? If I recall 10psi is all your supposed to do.

A friend of mine has the GM adapter. I could only get it to fit on my brake reservoir.
