My experience with most automotive type o-rings that I had re-purposed for my bike componentd is that they tend to dry out and crack after just a short time as I think they might be more sensitive to gasses commonly encountered in the environment like Ozone. They last longer in machinery as they are mostly sealed away from these gasses and UV light. I dunno, but has anyone here experienced similar??
