Default 401 Petrol Flap linkage

Can anyone help me -I am looking for the mechanism that opens the petrol flap on a Bristol 401 (activated by a button fitted in the rear arm rest)

Are you wanting only the locking mechanism for the Fuel filler flap/door?

Do you have the cable and button ?

Do you have a 401 Parts book it would certainly help your restoration?

I have the flap door and nothing else. Neither do I have the petrol cap which seals the tank. Looking at the top of the neck of the petrol tank it would seem that the cap itself was/is or perhaps it may be better to say it should be hinged as there is a hinge on the LHS of the neck.

zbigmak,
I have found the parts in the attached photos but the cable is not complete .
The petrol cap is new old stock that I have had for more than 40 years.
If you are interested send me a private message through the Forum

Apologises for not getting back to you back my mother passed away and we have had a hectic few months as we try and sort out the family affairs.
With regard to your questions:
I have the 400 parts book but have not been able to find an updated one for the 401
I am still looking for a petrol cap, petrol cap locking mechanism. I have the flap itself the button and a seized cable which I will most probably be able to use as a template to make a replacement.
Kindest regards and apologises for the lack of communication for so long.
George
