Below is what I documented as the content of the noted seal kit, and I believe I had more than one example of said kit, but it's been so long I cannot recall:
-------------------------------------------
RH2438 Seal Kit, Brake Pump
O-Rings
Qty 3 7/8 (.875) 1 1/8 (1.125) 1/8 (.125) AS568-212
Qty 2 1 1/16 (1.0625) 1 5/16 (1.3125) 1/8 (.125) AS568-215
Qty 1 1 (1.125) 1 (1.5) 1/8 (.125) AS568-218
Qty 1 9/16 (.5625) 11/16 (.6875) 1/16 (.0625) AS568-015
--------------------------------------------

I have been told that there should be a small O-ring at the location where the inlet pipe would meet the brake pump body shown in this picture:

Inlet Pipe to Pump Body Juncture

but there appears to be noting in the kit that would fit there. Is there supposed to be an O-ring there? If so, what are its outer diameter and cross section dimensions and what RR part is it?

I don't have an example, but the part # is UE35616.

Kelly,

I really wish I could fathom why it is that Crewe Original pulls this stunt of occasionally having kits that have all but one of the seals that you must have to do a given job. If you're replacing the brake pump seals it's 99 & 44/100ths percent certain that you will be removing the inlet pipe as part of that job and need a replacement.

The most irritating part is that this is not consistent and most of the kits are complete, so you never know when to be "on your toes."

This has got to be another AS568 standard sized EPDM O-ring that has a negligible cost. It should have been a part of the &#$%* kit!

Indeed. It even makes my urge to kill subside.

But the store wouldn't replace the hinge anyway.

You would have to dismantle the whole thing, pack it back in the box, take it all back to the store, swap it for another one, carry it back home, and assemble it all over again.

And then you find there's another part missing!
