Looking for the correct size 0 ring to replace one missing on a 80's vintage Campagnolo Super Record brake adjuster. Thanks for your response
Dale Brown over on the Classic Rendevous list just answered this, let me see if I still have that email...
Check Lowes or Home Depot:
Quote from Dale:
# 31 O-Ring
9/16" x 5/15 x 1/8
Danco Co., Concordville, PA
(made in Taiwan!)
Also found this bit of information from another list member:
Dale mentioned #31 o-rings, but I really prefer #48, meself.You can find them in the plumbing section. #48 is awfully close to the original rings, and is within about 0.5 mm in all dimensions, once mounted. Be careful, though, as there may be more than one size that is marked #48. You want the one that is nominally 3/8" x 5/8" x 1/8" although they are actually a bit fatter than that (which is good).
