      Mark, I'm in the process of rebuilding my ES-1A and I know the valve
      you are talking about. It's the vacuum breaker valve (compensator valve).

      I've purchased several types of o-rings in silicone and brown viton
      for various places on the machine and I know I have extras of what you
      need.

      In the future, when I can get to it, I had planned to list all the
      sizes that I have so others can use them as I've bought extras of most
      of them.

      Let me know how to get it to you.

      Thanks,

      Jan Christianson

        Mark, I'm in the process of rebuilding my ES-1A and I know the valve
        you are talking about. It's the vacuum breaker valve (compensator
        valve).

        I've purchased several types of o-rings in silicone and brown viton
        for various places on the machine and I know I have extras of what
        you
        need.

        In the future, when I can get to it, I had planned to list all the
        sizes that I have so others can use them as I've bought extras of
        most
        of them.

        Let me know how to get it to you.

        Thanks,

              Mark, I'm in the process of rebuilding my ES-1A and I know the valve
              you are talking about. It's the vacuum breaker valve (compensator
              valve).

              I've purchased several types of o-rings in silicone and brown viton
              for various places on the machine and I know I have extras of what
              you
              need.

              In the future, when I can get to it, I had planned to list all the
              sizes that I have so others can use them as I've bought extras of
              most
              of them.

              Let me know how to get it to you.

              Thanks,

              Jan Christianson
