Hi all,

Can anyone advise the size of the O ring that the union on the earlier raised base SE1's and 2's use? I've been given a link to one from RS spares but they are quite expensive and justly so as they are in a reasonable quantity. But I only need one and I have good stock of all other 'Mamod' sizes..

Cheers for your help in advance,

Will

Will just a quick post swinging by...

I bought a small plastic box of these, all with different sizes in little compartments, you then have a great range of O rings from unions through to SV and OFPs. Checkout Evibay!

Hi Mike,

I have a few sets of these but turns out they either fitted the pipe but too big for the union,cor the other way around...

Out of interest, and some trial and error.. It's the same size o ring they sell for the new type of mamod whistle that will fit the union/pipe.

Will
