    O-rings

    Sorry if this one has been done before guys but I've done forum searches and it's doing my head in.

    Are there any local suppliers of o-rings for atty's? I have managed to get some little ones from Auto Pro but I need some of those large spindly ones for the tank sections on Kayfun 3.1's. (Don't wash 'em in too hot water they expand!)

    I know I can get them from FT but I'll have to measure everything (pita) and even the yer not sure whether you'll get the right size.

    And I lost a little one on one of my AGA's the other night during a rebuild. Had a spare which I used but I hate not having spares! I'd also like to support locals first.

    Any advice gratefully received.

    If you are after the large o-rings for the tank sections they are about 16mm OD, 1mm thick going off a quick measurement of my KFL.
    Get silicone ones also try putting your old ones in the freezer they may shrink back to normal.

    Hi Merexy, the o ring sized for kayfun tanks is 20mmx18mmx1mm.
    I bought these ones from FT and they fit perfectly https://www.fasttech.com/p/1581303

    Many thanks guys! Really appreciate the time. I think I read somewhere here at one time someone was trying to get a thread or sticky on the subject. I reckon it would be a good idea!

    I was about to ask what are loom bands made from. I am a bit cautious about orings. Some disintegrate
