My petrol tap corks have never looked the colour of last week's quiz one.

They would if you used a cork from a red wine bottle. ;)

Confession time. I only know the answer to last week's quiz because Nellie has a petrol tap similar to the one that cork came from. When it was leaking I bought some new corks but thought I'd got the wrong ones because they didn't look like the ones I'd taken out. They didn't have the ridges in. How was I to know that I had to make them myself? :lol:

I notice the part for this weeks quiz was not sold separately. That does depend on what parts list you are looking at.
There was a time when parts were sold separately, starting at circa 1936 ( note the cap was used earlier )
Starting 1936.
Complete assembly. S/13750-1 changed to 17350-1 ( almost same number that was cap only )
Cap only. S/17350 changed to, STD780
Screw. S/17258 changed to STD593 this ended up as 000593
Plate for screw. 17256 changed to STD781
Cork washer. STD 570 changed to STD580 this ended up as 000580
All a bit confusing from approx. 1936 to 1940. So no wonder they changed to complete assembly only, with just the cork washer ending up as the only separate part sold. I think club spares stock this as 000580, also complete assembly. You may even still find old stock under the separate old pt. no's. As I am sure they sold more complete assembly's than bits. The things usually come loose and you lost and had to replace the lot.

I see I have now been running the quiz for 5 years and so after about 250 examples it's not surprising I am running a bit low on ideas for parts to photograph from a weird angle etc. If you can help please send them to quiz@jampot.com. Many thanks

After 5 years, those rusty parts would have changed quite a bit, just photograph them again. Also at our age we can't remember what you have used before anyway.
