Hey guys, getting ready to take the carbs off for cleaning on my 76 GL.
There appear to be four O-rings that seal the intake manifolds to
the cylinder heads.
Anyone have a "best source" to buy these from?
I checked Randakks site, but he seems to sell only complete rebuild kits
that cost more than I can afford right now.
I just want the O-rings so I can be sure of getting a good seal
when I reinstall.

Harbor Fright has a metric O-ring set that has a size the will work in it. They're slightly larger cross section than the stock ones but they work.

Thanks Dennis, but all they show are small O rings. The rings on the intake
manifold have to be much larger.
Does anyone know what size/diameter they actually are? I can't find any specific
data on them. I'd like to have new ones here before I take the thing apart.

I have also used the HarborFreight Metric O-ring set with good results, I also use them on the Waterpump cover (and many other places)
Can't beat it for the price.

Have you considered your local dealer? They probably have those parts in stock and you know they will fit.

I bought that Harbor Freight kit and so far haven't found a single o-ring in that box that will fit on the bike. Or anything else for that matter.

Pg. 1-6 in the Honda OEM manual says 40x2.6
a lot of o-rings sizes are there

Local dealer?? The local Honda dealer went out of business a couple of
years ago. (how the **** do you manage that??) So did the local BMW dealer
and the local Harley dealer. (what the ****?)
Nearest dealer now is about 40 miles away, which is a pain in Jersey traffic.
Guess I'll have to give them a call and go for a ride.
Thanks Dennis.

Joe, as densely populated as New Jersey is, there is a severe lack of
places to get parts and supplies. Yet you live in the (relatively) wide
open spaces of Kentucky and can get parts easily.
We used to have a Grainger's Supply not far from here, but even
they closed up and moved 40 minutes away.
Maybe it's me. (sniffing underarms):grin:

I live way out too and I like to have UPS or USPS bring it to me, even if I have to wait.
