    Here a pic showing the parts and part numbers.. Red bow shows what you need.. "O" ring #25618 (#36).. I would also check the lug (#35)to make sure it not crack..

    item #35 is the base lug the o-ring fits in the recessed hole .if your base lug is a home made unit i would get a regular replacement .Thumbs Up

    I have had that O-ring fail on a couple of occasions. Does anyone know why it was designed like that? (the base lug)

    o-ring

    i do not propose to know what was on western's mind but it might have been there to provide a fail safe weak link .kinda like a fusible link to fail when you hit some thing like stacking snow ,so you don't trash the whole housing .those baby's are not cheap ! :eek:

    sorry no pic but it, a homemade job it looks like the 2 ears were broke off at one time and they welded a new square steel base to it, i took it off and replaced the 0 ring and put a silicone gasket behind there also
    i am also gonna order the right one
