Manifold Gage set Kit.

Where can I purchase the seals and o rings for my manifold gage set? I have not seen them anywhere. Some of the seals look like they are conical shaped? Can you say Specialty Item?

Different gauge sets use different seals. What brand are you using?

Well.
I'm a bit embarrassed to say, but it is a Generic Branded refurbished set. There are no markings on it. I just thought all the hose ends were standardized. It looks like most of the gage sets I've seen.

Pull one out and see what shape it is. These are cylindrical and are the only one's we have and they come in a 10-pack.

Thanks.

Not tapered, about 9.5mm outer diameter, abbout 3mm inside diameter, about 7mm long and green in color. The opposite ends of the blue and red hose are just green o rings. You would think when buying a refurbished unit it would at least have new seals. E-Bay is not always the best deal. Havn't used this thing yet so don't know how good it actually is.

In the meantime, turn them up side down and put them back into the hoses. If they are too short, put a small o-ring under them.

Ours are the same length, O.D. but the I.D. is closer to 5mm than 3mm. Yours look closer to 5mm well.

Those are the ones. How do I order them? I don't see them on the website store.

I also need some of those seals. My gauge manifold is Uniweld brand (old, originally R-12).

Anybody consider the accuracy of these gauges? +/- 2 psi on the low side can make a huge difference, not easy to do with a gauge that has a +/- 10 psi accuracy.
