blow by O ring - 300D

I need to replace the O-ring type of thing that is on the drain at the bottom of the air cleaner that gets pushed down into the drain to the sump.. No local dealer (2 hours away)

has anyone used a generic O-Ring size to replace this? I have lots of oily build up and deposits in the area below this that Im guessing is from this air cleaner leak.

Thanks in advance

George

Thanks, I was 99% sure I could order it from fastlane. Was just wondering if there was any potential local remedies. Feels stupid to order an $0.63 part. Especially if a local Auto O ring will due just as well.

actually,you could probably just take the old one to a hardware store or maybe a plumbing store and compare until you find one to match it
