I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

O ring Wanted!

Evening all.

Does anyone have a couple of small O rings. I need to replace a couple on my tumble dryer as it is spewing water out all over the kitchen floor. They need to be 9mm ID, and 2mm cord dia if possible. A slightly smaller ID would work, but the cord dia needs to be that.

A High-Five and a sloppy kiss from Daisy is awaiting the lucky supplier Smile

Cheers!
Andy

I've got an O ring kit, comes in strips and you cut it to length and glue with superglue. Not sure on the Dia though, I'll have a look in the shed in the morning, Any good?

The cord that you glue together wont really work, as the oring is used as both a seal and an anti pull through thing to stop a valve pulling through its housing. Bloody stupid design if you ask me, but it probably met the "thats nice and cheap and will last just enough to get the dryer through the two year warranty period, then break down the day after heh heh" requirement in the production approval meeting at Zanussi.....

Cheer BB, much obliged.

Andy

All sorted now cheers, I found an O ring kit at work, and pilfered a few that looked about right. Of course, sods law says that the one I need is exactly in between the sizes I have though.....

Haha - Long term loan eah!? O ring Wanted! Gigglesmile

Joking aside, someone else was after O rings a while back too,
If anyone is interested, they have box sets of them in the car shop in greenfield for about £2.50 - I saw them the other day on yet another wasted journey out to Greenfield model shop!
