Does anyone have a good source for the chain that retains the fuel filler cap? Is it bronze, or just cadmium steel?
I've only seen a couple on ebay, from Eastern Europe, I think. Maybe I need a better search term.
Thanks.

Apparently, this is called "sash chain" (all my old wood windows used braided sash cord), and I should be able to find it at the hardware store.

I can get bronze at McMaster-Carr. Might be safer in the fuel tank. I'll do a magnet test on the short section I have when I measure the width.
