    Not positive, but ACE Hardware should carry a selection of O-rings as well. And you'll find them faster than the warehouse stores.
    I needed to replace one for our kitchen sink stopper (bigger than 1" diameter) and I remember they had quite a selection of sizes. And this was at a small ACE neighborhood store.

    I don't seem to have problems with my bumper boys like others have stated. But I do all of the listed, plus, before I put the bumpers on each time, I clean them out with a rag wrapped around my heeling stick. Cleans out all the trash, gunpowder, gunk.....I have the old electronics and same servos too. They are 8 shooters used regularly. I am regularly reprimanded by a retired marine about my equipment though. His is in perfect condition!

    FWIW....

    Sue, now you know our "retired marine" is a lovable little fuzz ball, I find it hard to believe he would reprimand anyone about anything. HA!

    Grease attracts dust & grit. Not good.

    I got the graphite spray at NAPA auto store, $8 or so for the can. I tried Fastenal, but no luck, although the internet said they have it.
