Lidl O ring set
« on: 12 May 2022, 12:41:47 pm »
Just a heads up, Lidl has  420 piece set of O-rings (who needs that many). Says they are acid, petrol and oil resistant.  Presumably ok for Carbs then?
£6.99

I bought a set when they came up in Lidl a while ago. Never had to use them yet though  :thumbup

I have a similar set of "O" rings which has come in handy on the odd occasion so worth having in the garage. However as often as not a specific job requires a size that's not in the box.

I bought a similar set from Aldi a few years ago. They've been used on Jag X-Type water pumps and diesel injectors  :lol .

Remember original carb o-rings are petrol proof but not always ethanol proof, I'd avoid cheapies and buy viton if going to the trouble of stripping carbs.

Exactly what I was going to add. Would be heartbreaking to remove and strip a set of carbs, replace the O rings, only to have them leak on refitting :'( .
