I did see them on flea Bay recently, at $7.00 for the 2 each! Plus shipping and handling........
There has to be a source for those X cross section o-rings that are used on the later unit motor oil pipe mount. (not sure WHY they are called Hex cause they are really X cross section, details, details...). Anyone found them at the hardware store, Lauson Power products lawn mower shop, Fordson Tractor parts??

Why not just look them up on McMaster.com? You can probably get 100 for about $5.

Leon, Thanks for the offer, I'll keep trying before depleting your stock, but may be back..............

DMadigan, You know, I saw your post on McMastercarr for something else. They aren't the easiest to find anymore, but I will have to give it a another shot! I don't have their catalog anymore, so I guess maybe online.

Mcmaster is a good source but if you cant find them you can look for grainger.I like them because they have a few warehouses local so no waiting,otherwise pretty much identical afaik.

I posted a thread a while back offering to supply a few since, if you buy a bag of 100 from McMasters, it's a big of overkill. I've sent some to a few guys since. A self-addressed stamped envelope is all that's needed.

Nice offer Gary. I just thought it better to pay $5 to McMaster for 100 rather than $7 for two which I consider gouging. I have a supply of viton O-rings for the triple oil pump and only sell them for their cost.

I think at Grainger's you only gotta buy like 50 of them.
