The Service Manual just shows a part number for the filter cap O-ring.
It is #570432, which could be anything.  I was hoping it would give the size and crossectional thickness.

OH!  If you are running one of the older Adobe Readers that has the "search" button which finds every place your search word appears in the document DO NOT UPDATE IT TO READER XI.
I did that last night only to find that the handy "search" feature is gone in the Reader XI.

You know, the search button that will find all 173 places where that word appears in the document, and by clicking on each one you can rapidly jump thru the file to find what your looking for.  IT IS GONE dammit.
Not only is it gone, but installing it wiped out my older saved versions of Reader 5 and Reader 8 so I can't even reinstall them.
Talk about a crappy update!

Don't you just hate it when your all grumpy about some program screwing up your computer and you mention it to the significient other and she/he says, "Oh.  Just hit the EDIT button and you'll find the search thingie there."

OK, if she/he is wrong it does give you an ace to keep up your sleeve but when she/he is right it makes you feel dumb.
The "SEARCH" feature on the new Adobe Reader 11 is under the EDIT button. :)

I am learning a ton from Jack's oil leak! O-rings, I always thought the bigger they are the more they squish and seal but apparently not the case, and now pdf file word searches! You guys do rock!

Those are all sissy programs.  Now, a real man does all his work in UNIX, or if he has hair on his chest he's still running FORTRAN.   ;D ;D

Put 250 miles on my bike yesterday. No leak. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.

If he uses FORTRAN he may have hair on this chest but most likely none left on his head
