O-ring for tii pressure maintenance valve info needed...

I was readying the '74 tii for a ride to ChapterFest today but had a steady drip-drip-drip from the fuel line fitting on the pressure relief or maintenance valve. It's believed the o-ring may need replacing, but I will try a different hose clamp.

Does anyone have this o-ring for sale, or info/dimensions necessary to obtain one from a dealer of vendor? I will place a WTB post in the proper forum if you think that is a better approach.

Thanks to Jim Gerock for this photo:

John -

I'll try to measure my old one and report back. For a quick fix, I'd take your old one off the valve take it to an auto parts store or Lowe's and find a similiar o-ring. Be careful when removing & installing the ring - it will get damaged by the threads. You will need a 14mm wrench to remove the valve from the back of the KF pump.
