Might have a set of pipes on the dead block in the garden. I’ll have a look when I get home.

Hi Kev.

If you need "O" rings, I will either have them, or can get them for you. Never a good idea to reuse them, though I am not familiar with the pipe in question.

Worth mentioning Kev that I'm talking about generic rings not OEM rings. Not sure if they are available these days (OEM), but I can certainly get a suitable standard O ring if you are stuck.
