Source For Viton O-Rings For OM603?

I am looking for a set of Viton O-rings for the tank screen and injection pump for an OM603. Are there any sources besides fryerpower.com? I placed an order with fryerpower.com a month ago and after 2 weeks did not receive them. The company owner will not respond to my emails. After doing some research, it looks like his house burned down in May and then he had a car crash, but it appears he was sending out orders shortly after. But, I'm figuring the business is dead in the water. It would be nice if at least the website stated such so people don't keep placing orders only to never receive them.

Apparently the Viton O-rings sold at Harbor Freight aren't the correct thickness.

I don't. The ones in the car are currently leaking, so I don't know how good they will be for getting measurements. I'm sure I can find the sizes somewhere.

Absolutely fair assessment! Sometimes I ship the next day. Sometimes it takes WEEKS.

Even with every o-ring in stock right now I'm still having problems. Someone ordered two weeks ago and I never got notification.

At this point I'm just rolling with it, but I have to say my give a crap supply has just about run out. The hassle of dealing with the insurance company on the fire pretty much has that tapped out.

Hopefully I can get in next week and streamline my website. Everything except O-rings is going away and I'm going to set up a new email address to receive notifications. My current one gets 200+ spam emails a day.

I did finally get my O-rings shipped, and installed them on the vehicle. A Viton O-ring kit for the lift pumps would be a good item, especially since Mercedes charges $10 for just one of the O-rings, which has to come from Germany.
