Large O-rings

Unread postAuthor: clemsonguy1125 » Sun Apr 25, 2010 5:28 pm

Ive been looking for o-rings that fit over a 2 inch bushing but havent been able to find them. I tried lowes but they didnt have any a told me to go to the auto parts store. They didnt have them either. Ive heard heard Ace has them but theres not one in my town and if I can help it Id prefer not to drive 45 minutes for one part . Does any one know a good place to get them, thanks?

Just about any place specializing in hydraulics (Parker) will have them.

I would check Harbor Freight. The one near me will randomly stock a pretty good selection.

Try a boating store or a car parts shop, they usually have large diameter o rings I once saw a pair of 10 inch o rings :shock:

At pool stores they also have large ones, but too big! Like a foot diameter. Oh yeah and when I went to ace for my o-rings the largest they had was the perfect fit for my 1.25" coupling so I don't think they'll have 2 inchers.

Yeah... what do you need the o-ring for? You casted the piston I thought. And it will be fine without the seal because it needs a gap to equilize.

I'd try mcmaster or maybe with the slightest chance you could find some at a motor-cycle store. I'd extremely doubt it though. I only see them for oil filters. Other then those i'd go to a hydraulic store. I've never seen big o-rings at lowes, home depot or ace (my small ace hardware on an island) either.

I got the ones I use at a Tru-Value hardware store. They have them in the bulk bins. I bought ones for my 2 inch and 2.5 inch QDV cannons there.

O ring test fit inside the 2.5 inch pipe
