You need to post a pic of the filler, then we might be able to tell what cap you need!

Probably easier just to replace the whole thing though!

when you write a post there is a box at the bottom that says attach picture. must be no more than 640x480 though well 640x1500 but its easier to just do 640x480

Made in Taiwan is what you normally find, but whilst it's off you could replace it with a new one!
