Searched the forum but didn't have any luck.  Looking for fill valve o-ring replacement.  Anyone know the size and/or where I can find locally?  Hoping to be able to find it at local automotive store.  Thanks in advance for you help.

Are you referring to the 'silent fill' o-ring? I found that size 002 rings work perfectly for that application. If you're talking about the other internal o-rings I unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) have not had to look at those yet. I found the size 002 rings on oringwarehouse.com, though I'm sure you could find them elsewhere. The 'Moondog' o-rings found on big retail sites are exactly the same thing, except the price has been marked up around 1300% for the convenience they're offering you... Not that convenient if you ask me!

wow I am impressed you know the size 002 for the fill orings. It would be nice to know all the orings and someone put them up in a sticky for everyone. I have been using some from lowes but they are far from ideal and I have to stretch them quite a bit.

I have been interested in seeing a list of o-rings sizes as well. While I could pull my magazines apart and find out for sure I must admit I'd like to take advantage of the fact that none of them leak currently, for fear that if I remove the valves I may induce new leaks. That being said, the moment I find out what the rest of the ring sizes are, I will share all of that knowledge promptly with the forums.
