Fuel Cap O rings
« on: January 13, 2006, 11:58:23 AM »
Does anyone know the correct o ring that seals the "brock" fuel cap??

It seems all the ones that I've found lateley are much too thick!!


Happy flying!

My Long-EZ uses the Brock fuel cap and I've found the required 1-7/8 X 1-11/16 X 3/32 O-rings at Ace Hardware.  It's an industry standard "dash 131" size (AS-568A-131).

But since I often use mogas, I've opted for Viton parts, which I have not been able to find locally.  McMaster-Carr (http://www.mcmaster.com/) carries them (search for p/n 9464K131).
