    Leaking BC inflator fitting

    I found one that appears to be the same size on McMaster Carr, it is a -903. I have emailed DGE, asking what size O-rings go in the adapter.

    Leaking BC inflator fitting

    There are two different size o-rings you can find in an inflator hose. What I call standard and US. The smaller one looks like a US o-ring, this one you only find in American hoses.
