what is actually wrong with yours? rarely do they need replacing which is why you cant find new.

I think new ones are now NLA.

 

You will likely need to look at the 2nd hand market.

 

Bust as Nick mentioned, it's odd to need to replace one. What's wrong with yours ?

Actually nothing much.
I did have a job getting the seal out.
It was really hard the rubber.
Anyway its still got bits inside the seal hole part.
Got it in viniger now .
So will give it a good scrub and paint it.

They can be 'fun' sometimes to get the seal out of.

 

Most Seals have a steel insert in them and with most, this is just a bit smaller than the hole for it in the pressing of the cover, it gives a small lip that you can usually just land a dolly on to knock it out. It's best too if you can support the cover on the inside when doing this so it doesn't end up distorted.

 

If you have found your cover is bent you might be best off changing it as it will likely leak.
