View Full Version : distributor o ring availability
11-04-2006, 09:06 PM
Ive looked through quite a few posts and seen a couple places where people have said that they found an o ring at the local parts store that worked...and one in particular that i cant find now mentioned that they found it in the HELP section at the parts store...but I was wondering if the o ring they are talking about came in an assortment of Distributor O Rings...just curious before I tear open a package to find out I dont have the right thing. Thanks!

I used permatex gasket maker on mine and it has lasted for over a year.
I dont know the exact size of the o-ring but I am sure you cna get it from a Suzuki dealership fairly cheap.

I took my old O-rings in to a parts store and they got me the closest match they could find.
The O-rings weren't a perfect fit but they're still working - no leaks since changing them out.
If you can, I would recommend doing what Its Me Joe said - get the right parts from your Suzuki dealer.:happy

I went to NAPA, they got out their o-ring kit and made one the right diameter. Works perfect.

Spidertrax also has them on the shelf. I picked some up the last time I went by.

09280-56004 is the part number for the larger o-ring. It's also less than 2 bucks at a suzuki dealer. You can try a chevy dealer too since the 1.3 was in metros and trackers. Not sure if the o-ring is the same but it can't hurt to try. ;-)

I got mine from local napa, they looked it up ordered it in. I also used just gasket maker on it before too. works real good, but if you ever need to get the housing off again, the gasket maker makes it fun!

I got mine at Ace Hardware. No problems since.

I found the small distributor o-ring at Ace, but no such luck with the larger o-ring that seals the distributor shaft housing to the rear of the head. I'll be calling Royal Suzuki of Tucson on Monday for that one, and they're not inexpensive there.
If there's any members in the Tucson area that know of a better supplier, info would be greatly appreciated.

I think you can order the exact one from petroworks.com i can't remember how much, but i know they have a "common problem fix" that is the dist o ring

I just carried my old ones to Auto Zone and the counterman went back to his stash and came out with two new ones. I put them on and no more leaks.

is it necessary to replace the o-ring when swapping distributors? It "looks" fine to me as it is. Sorry about the hijack.

It's alot easier to do it while swapping distributors than it is later when it is definatley leaking. I'd at least do the permatex while you have it out.
