hey,
I have just put new wheels on and im not able to put the centre cap on because of the grease cap on the hub. My question is, is there a shallower cap available to replace it with? Or am i just gunna have to have the grease cap showing?

There is only about 3mm between the split pin and the inner of the cap so id doubt there would be a shallower cap available.

You may have to use a dome type cap instead of the flat Ford ones. Other that that i really dont know what you can do.

Smaller grease caps might work if you can remove some length from the stub provided there is a bit of meat left to hold the split pin in place. Maybe a larger spacer for the wheel is the only option.
