O-Ring questions

can someone decipher what the hell I need to order for a fuel bowl fix?
3 choices, I'm guessing blue is best since it works down to the coldest?

Taken from the dieselorings.com site

Differences between the black Viton (A), Brown Viton (B) or the Blue Fluorosilicone fuel drain o-rings sold on this page:

The black Viton o-rings are polymerized from two monomers, vinylidene fluoride and hexafluoropropylene (Viton (A).


The brown Viton o-rings are polymerized from three monomers, vinylidene fluoride, hexafluoropropylene and tetrafluoroethylene. The terpolymer blend of Viton has shown to have additional resistance to fuel permeation ans swell when used with ULSD and BioDiesel than standard Viton (A).


The Blue Fluorosilicone has a much wider temperature range than Viton (A) or Viton (B) and is widely used in extream environmental conditions. They will stay flexible in artic conditions down to -70 F.

Re: O-Ring questions

will do, I was at work when I posted that and didn't have time to talk to him, but I'm off now and will call him, just hated to bother him with a probably stupid call, I"m sure he gets tons of them.

thanks

ok after talking with Bob, I decided to go with the blue, they are mil-spec and for the extra 2.50 or whatever it was, seems like a better deal. They are also biodiesel and ulsd friendly.

Re: O-Ring questions

Ahh bob is a good guy, I've talked to him a few different times, always good to talk to, and I never felt rushed off the phone or like he was to busy to answer my foolish question. Glad he got you hooked up!

Re: O-Ring questions

only problem is you need a pen and paper to talk with him, cause he's giving out great information and if your not prepared to write it down, you'll forget it!!

I got a ton of stuff coming, its gonna be a busy weekend next weekend.
