    Need Advice

    Hello
    I think I am ready to start to make some push rod and drive shaft seals. I need to ask for help from the U.S side. I know McMaster carr is a source of parts BUT I don`t know the specific part number and sizes recommended for this use. If there is any other U.S sources also for these can you let me know and what their part numbers are for my needs?

    I plan on making my own WTC that uses internal air for a air pressure bag in the ballast tank. so there is No external air used.

    I am looking for seals that will work on 1/8" shafts and 1/8" and 3/16" drive shafts.

    I need O rings OR Cup Seals, might be called something else, I don`t know. Has to work with the above mentioned WTC internal air pressure/vacuum.

    Please let me know what are the ones best used for my application. Part numbers please.

    Thanks
    George

    Hey Rick, do you have any experience with the company link you posted? I have sent them 2 emails asking about their product and pricing and have NEVER heard back from them. If you have had deals with them, how did you do it?
    Thanks Rick
