2003 oil supply tube o-ring

So I'm putting the truck together from doing head gaskets and decided to check the braided supply tube from the stand pipe to the high pressure oil rail. I found one of the o-rings inside the pipe was pretty much garbage and needs to be replaced.

Does anyone know if I can put just a regular o-ring inside the braided pipe or does it need to be something special?

I believe it will be a metric o-ring since everything else is metric.

Re: 2003 oil supply tube o-ring

I would not play russian roulette with "an o ring that might work". Turbos are expensive.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Not turbo...its from the Stand Pipe to the High Pressure Oil rail under the valve covers. Its a early build 03.

Re: 2003 oil supply tube o-ring

Oh, gotcha. Missed that, but still the same, I don't think you can match the durometer(hardness/softness) specs to prevent premature failure. Thats a failure that could leave you sitting on side the road.
