I'm looking for a cap. I have found some but a little pricey. Sams has aftermarket but I would like original if I can. Does anybody have an old one they would sell, It doesn't have to be pretty just usable. I do have a new decal for one if I can only find a cap.

Huh, I didn't even know my 1050 was supposed to have a steering wheel cap. Learn something new every day. Thanks.

The caps were clear, and you need the one with the "grooves" around the edges. Early caps were more cone shaped with smooth sides. Old style #1717327( Used mostly around 1966 )
Newer Style: 1719165 (Most common)

The engine dates to January 1967, I would assume this is a 1967 1050 correct?

Which part number would I be looking for? By your description it would be the newer style?

Usually the engines used were 1 year older than the tractors themselves, so most likely you have a 1968, which used the 1719165 caps

Here are a couple pics that show the difference between the two caps.The left is the early one and the right is the later one.The early one can also be found on the sears tractors and the later one is also on the massey tractors.
