So this is a total PITA
'standard' number 6 8 10 12 do not seem to mean anything, on top of the fact that there are also metric standard numbered o rings
regular ac kits do not have the same size o rings as on the car
does anyone have the actual dimensions for the o rings that belong on the car, measuring old crushed o rings is not that accurate, and what is the name of the scale the numbers 6 8 10 and 12 come from?
It probably refers to tube diameter in 1/8s, although I am not at the car to check, but oring standards are a completely different set of numbers so a #6 would be a 0012....maybe
aggravating that the simplest thing is virtually impossible
I am not inclined to make a 2 hour trip to overpay for o rings at the dealer, then drop one under the bench somewhere, when I could have a box of them at my door in a few days.......
