I have not been on here in a while...
So, where is a good source for o-rings?
Approximately 18 years ago I replaced the plastic plug on my 1991 RRC Hunter radiator with the brass plug( I think it came from EE?)
Anyways, yesterday I opened the bonnet to find a small sizzle/leak coming from the plug.
After it cooled down and I removed it, it appears it has been slightly pinched all these years and finally leaked.
I managed to refit it, and it didn't leak again yet but I need a spare o-ring and I dont think I kept the original plastic plug.

Pretty sure Rob has the right part number yet as AB sells the brass plug I’d give them a call just to confirm.
