Bvm air cylinder

Working on an older bvm f16. The nose gear air cylinder leaks past the front seal pretty badly. It's intermittent and if you push on the rod it will usually seal up. Any idea what sized oring would be to repair? Guess I could get a new cylinder but figure I would try to fix it.

I would try injecting some o ring lube first.

Barring that, this is the large one? .75 diameter I think? Pm me if interested, if you pay pal me $10 for shipping i'll send you one.

I tried the thin bvm oring lube and the thick parker oring grease. The grease may have helped some. The oring may have gotten melted when the extended brass tubing was soldered on by the original owner. $10 shipping is outrageous I would rather fly with you at pgrc and pick up, but not sure you are going to come back now that your other field has the petromat. anyway appreciate your offer. I will take the old one out and see if I can clean it grease it and see what happens. If that doesn't work I'll pull the oring. If that doesn't work I will get with u via pm. I will also measure to make sure we are talking the same sized cylinder.
