Yes, I meant Rolls-Royce.  I finally got around to rummaging through all our o-rings in stock for our aircraft and found one that fits.  It's slightly smaller than the Green HF o-ring, but slightly larger than the stock o-ring.  It's meant to with stand the high heat of a jet engine and petroleum based lubricants, so I am curious to see it's performance.

In case you want the part number, it is: KB16212.  I'll report back on my results.

To my understanding a pack of six will run you only about as much as 15 LM4's haha.
