Well, I got the replacements in the mail today.  While they are smaller in diameter than the grease cups I already had, they are still too big.  I will be looking for some used originals now.  Unless someone on the list has a couple of used originals they would sell, I may just leave them out and let the knock off cover the hole.Mike MacLean

I have wasted many, many hours and lots of $ working with inferior reproduction parts andfor just that reason will ALWAYS opt for good used originals even if they require substantial amounts of reconditioning.

I just got off the phone with Moss technical.  Steve answered after a short wait on hold.  He took the time to pull the dust covers and the same splined hubs I have from stock to measure them.  The same part numbers as my "oversize" grease cup covers that are now in stock are the correct size for the splined hubs I have!  He measured one of the covers outer diameter at about 1.885".  To further make this a good thing, he is going to credit my account the $50+ of the original cost of the wrong size cups I have, even though I bought them back in 2017.  Usually you have only one year to return an item to Moss.   He has no explanation for the grease cups that are .020 too big.  Maybe a different manufacturer?  In any case I ordered a set a few days ago hoping they would be a different size even though they are the same part number.  I was just going to send them directly back if not right.  According to Steve, if they were pulled just a couple of days ago they should be correct.  We'll see.  Supposed to be in the mail today.  I will let you guys know later today if they fit because I know you are just on pins and needles about the outcome of this tragedy. ;^)Mike MacLean
