Ok, done that, both kits have a few smaller diameter green o-rings but
neither have a green one for the fuel distributor body (if that's the
right name for it).  I replaced the leaking one on my turbo-type pump
with another black one, now wondering if it'd be worth-while to wait
till I find a viton-one (or better?) with which to repair the leaking NA
pump that I have...so, question for the group, does anyone have a source
for such an o-ring?  Kinda reluctant to put any bio-diesel in the fuel
tank at all, if the o-rings I'm using are just Buna-N. 
Anyway, thanks for the info, and happy holidays, if you've got some
coming to ya.
