I see many models with PT's (3) gas caps (which are deck mounted) on a high collar. The Italeri does it as well. Yet the PT blue print (reference the Dick Washichek blueprint set file ELCO_Roll_5535-2_72SCAN_00309) in Detail 1 - Deck Fitting Assem. shows the gas cap as nearly flush with the deck surface. The actual dimension is unreadable on the blueprint but is only about 3/16 above the surface of the deck.

Any photo evidence to the contrary of what is in the blueprint or that I'm misreading the blueprint (not likely though)?

Dick: I hope and trust it's OK to use snippets of the blueprint set to show what I am referring to.
