Can you get me the inside and outside diameter? Wondering if this will fit the backdated heat pipe off the fan shroud (drivers side)

They fit over the J tube that comes up through the engine tin from the heat ex changers. If you don't have a auxiliary electric fan, you use these to cap off the J tubes. So whatever size that J tube is, the inside diameter of the cap needs to fit over, and not necessarily snugly. They are typically fitted with a hose clamp, which is why they have two slots. Getting an accurate inner and outer dimension on a 50 year old plastic cap is a bit of a crap shoot, but...

2.13" inner (54.2 mm)
2.37" outer (60.3 mm)
