I want to change the oil fill cap to something aftermarket but don't know what the thread size is? Also want to do the brake,clutch reservoir covers too.

Vendors sell them. Making your own or something?

Can you not look it up and tell you a size or measure it?

Here is a list of what will work for the oil filler cap taken from the Gates 31083 oil fill cap.

Now just look up those vehicles in your car parts companies for an aftermarket cap and you should find something better than stock.

KDM aftermarket sellers have some nice oil caps as well.
For the brake fluid and clutch caps you're pretty much out of luck. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Here I was trying to have him research something in hope of him learning more about the car in the process. Guess I should have posted the thread size and compatible cars in post #2. :-(

Not everyone is good at researching and like anything takes time to learn.
Ive been doing this a long time so it didn't take me but a few minutes to find the information.
I still couldn't find the actual thread size so I cross referenced Gates cap to other vehicles to find what worked.
I did this at the junkyard as well to realize a lot of the Mazda cars use the same thread pattern.
Junk yards are my deep thought meditation hang outs. 😍😎

No Fords were listed in the cross reference info I found for the Gates replacement oil cap for our cars.
Plenty of Hyundai's, Kia's, and Mazda's.
Honda won't work either.

Oh, Hell I had to get a 93 - 98 Honda Rubber hanger for my 2015 Rspec with CNT exhaust so I could run stock tips, (the Heat treated is nice but stick out to far). If you use the stock hanger on the drives side the exhaust will hit the fake tips when you hit a bump or pot hold.
