DC04 Release valve "O" ring
« on: February 06, 2017, 08:19:54 PM »
I am currently re furbing a DC04 and whilst stripping down the release valve for cleaning noticed that the "O" ring was in poor condition and badly cracked. Does anyone know where I can get one of these from or point me in the right direction, any help info would be very much appreciated.   
DC04 and DC07's for me and the occasional DC14.

You wait until you remove the airflow duct from the motor to the chassis, 98% of all of the o-rings in there fall apart on me I just glue the duct back on now...
