    Alternative to LEM Diff O Rings

    I ordered some diff o rings from LEM. Needless to say, I still don't have them in my hands, and I am not a patient person.

    Charles has been quick in communication, so that isn't the issue... But I don't know what is going on with my order right now. So originally I was shipped the wrong part. He said he shipped out another one. I emailed back and said, any updates, I still haven't gotten anything, and he said that is odd, I will send another. Still haven't gotten it.

    Is there an alternative to these?

    I assume that he isn't making these himself, so I wanted to find out their size

    Sorry to hear.
    I ordered them from LEM about the same time you did and got them in a few days.
    Hope you get them soon!

    Order the correct size in 90 duroneter urethane and never replace them again unless you damage them installing them or don't lubricate them during assembly. I use them quite regularly on other things I mess with.

    I never could find the correct size...I didnt want to spend 10$ or 10 o rings from LEM if they were .16 at the other place. Since I couldn't find it and I needd them quickly I just ordered them and got them in 2 days from LEM. Sorry your having issues....

    I might be able to get someone to figure out the exact size of the o ring...I cant but I would in the oilfield so I deal with people who deal with o rings. Might take me a cpl of days tho.

    supposedly the new ones are on the way again.... Actually got a tracking number this time though, as I kept pressing for it... Honestly, I don't think they were ever sent out, after the initial mis-shipment


    What are the size of these things?

    I guess, worst case scenario, I can just measure them when they get here, if they show up......

    If the wrong parts come again, let me know.
    I'll send you my unopened pack of 10.
    Once you get the correct ones, send them to me.

    5mm id, 7.8mm od
    Hard to measure exactly, it's soft but that's as close as I can get before I see I'm stretching or compressing...

    7.8 - 5.0 = 2.8
    2.8 / 2 = 1.4

    Pretty much what SerpJimmy said in Post#2:
    1.5mm x 5mm x 8mm

    yeah, the problem with that measurement is I can't find what is the correct one off of The O Ring Store

    then someone else said something about a higher rater durometer rating

    So I installed them today and noticed they are SMALLER OD than the blue rings. Put em in anyway guess we will see. The blue rings that came out were destroyed and leaking bad.

    So I just wanted to make it clear. That LEM did get them to me.... Looks like the PO lost it... I did get them.

    I will say that Charles would return my emails pretty promptly when I sent him one asking what happened to them.
