Chrysler P/N for the big top O-ring is 2095 740, discontinued, and the inner diameter is 1.068". Buna-N is an acceptable material. Find it around as a "size 121 round O-ring", such as here (a hundred of them for under ten bucks) or here (one for 35¢, but shipping will probably make it more worthwhile getting the 100-pack, then when the end of the world comes you'll be prepared).

Chrysler P/N for the small bottom O-ring is 2095 630, discontinued, and the inner diameter is 0.920". I'm pretty sure it's a size 021 square O-ring such as this (where you can also read about Buna-N material's characteristics), though it's been long enough since I scrutinized one of these that my recollection of them as square-section could be wrong—they might well start out as round and the outer diameter gets squished flat with pressure, heat, and time. Also possible it's an 020-size ring (outer diameter 1.004") or an 022-size ring (outer diameter 1.129").

These size numbers apply whether you're getting round- or square-section O-rings, so google searches are easy. Both O-rings need to be in place and in good condition or yeah, you'll have oil leaks.

Thanks, Dan. I just ordered a pack of 100, which should get here around Jan 3. If anyone wants 1-3 of them, I can drop them in envelopes and send them out. Party favors for the Slant Six Banquet in March 3 at my house!!

The smaller o-ring website/link was broken, but I'll try again later.

Cheers,

Lou

Lou I was just going to order 100. With Prime shipping it is a great deal. But I'd really only like to have about 20. If you want to sell some just drop me a PM. I'm in no big rush.

Thanks for the info Dan. We really need to get Dan's post into the FAQ section so it is easy to find in 5 years when I can't find mine! :D :D

Rick,

Thanks for asking. I will save 20 for you. No reason for both of us to have a huge number sitting around! 10-15 for me will probably last me until I die.

Lou
