fuel filler O-ring

Does anyone know the part number for the o-ring for the fuel filler bronze cap? I have a 31 but assume they are all the same.

Why don't you take the current one to the local shipyard, they can find you an equivalent size, probably at the fraction of the cost of a replacement from the fuel cap manufacturer.

Re: fuel filler O-ring

These things are awfully common but come in several sizes. Take the O-ring down to any local marine store that has a good parts inventory and you'll probably find a replacement.

Having a good O-ring on the fuel cap that is doing its job is critical. It keeps water out of your fuel when it rains. Guaranteed -- if water contaminates your fuel you'll have bad fuel in short order because it enables the bugs to grow.

Re: fuel filler O-ring

Thanks, yep. Looks like West Marines two Perkins O rings for $8.00. I was hoping to get 10 or 15 on the web for that price
but without a number that will not work.

Re: fuel filler O-ring

Many hardware stores have great selections of O-rings. I would be surprised if you couldn't find it at your local Ace.

I replaced the O-Ring in the diesel fill plate on the deck with a Perco # 0513DP3 1 1/2 inch.

Johnharch and BluesHarp (honorable mention to Mike/1,

Thanks. Ace sounds like a good possibility (even if it makes me feel dumb for thinking everything has to be marine store specialty items) I will also check out the Perco.

Appreciate it,

JV
