Default Radiator cap pressure rating???

I did a search on "radiator cap" on our forume and here is what Alexander had to say about this on 11/19/2007 & 11/20/2007.

12 to 15 lb is correct for the Squarebirds. A 13 lb is available. The original cap is B8-8100-A.

There is no point deduction for the AC cap in all classes in BTCI and ITC as that is the correct replacement.
1959 Hard Top
1960 Golde Top

In addition, there is a post that shows a picture of an AC 15# RC-15 cap. Alexander also said this..

Autolite caps from 1967 to 1980's are acceptable replacements.

If you click on the link provided in that post, you will find that there is this. AC also has a 13# RC-6 model available for those who want a 13lb cap.

I have a non-AC 14lb cap on Yellow Rose
