I found O'rings at home depot.
Danco #60 1/4 OD 1/8 ID 1/16 W
They seemed a little too hard and they would spin on the shaft.
So I did the fuel tubing method instead. It works perfectly now.
One thing I wanted to mention was that the worm gear was spinning on the motor shaft. I gave the collar a little squeeze and unfortunatly the paper or whatever that material is disinagrated. So I rapped double sided tape on the motor shaft then slipped the collar over the shaft and then stuck the worm gear on the end of that.
I then reassambled the unit and it was making a horrible noise. I took it apart again and isolated the noise problem.
It turns out the fix I did made the worm gear a little longer and were it fits in the plastic on the other end of the worm gear it was making the noise.
I put a VERY SMALL amount of slightly heavy oil on the end of the gear and now the unit is as quite as I remember a new unit being.
If your unit is making noise you might want to try this fix. Use a slightly heavy oil so it doesn't drip inside the unit. And use a VERY SMALL amount of oil. Not much is needed.
Hope this helps somebody,
