How about no text? Did some bikes come with plain caps?

Around the periphery from 12 o'clock- CASTROL XL -ESSOLUBE 40 -DOUBLE SHELL - MOTORINE M - MOBILOIL BB. In the centre -
FOR WINTER
OIL
SEE HANDBOOK.
Some of the early caps had a spelling mistake i.e. FOR WINTFR OIL SEE HANDBOOK.
I think Series D had plaincaps.
