Default Cab 12 oil filler plug

I've seen a couple of cab 12s with this rubber plug on the rear of the engine cover, albeit perished.

Does anyone know of a replacement, or source of supply for this part?

Brian Asbury used to have them NOS, but I am going back a while, into the 90s. He usually saves one for a pattern, so maybe there is hope. Jordan was doing some casting of rubber parts. Maybe he would take on the project.

sold a couple of NOS ones in the past couple of years. I picked them up about 20 yrs ago, from another collector who himself obtained them several years earlier... so there should be a couple of extremely good examples out there.

70 yr old NOS specialized parts (eg CMP) are almost impossible to find these days
