1. O-ring size for gas handling system is 2 mm Wide x 8 mm ID and this is the best fit for it. Some of the fittings have 01-1/02011 that must be replaced in the next maintenance.

2. Original filters were 150-19-BX and 150-19-DX which where used on the inlet and exhaust of the pump respectively. The equivalent filters for these numbers will not fit in the housing. 38-152-50K (fine) and 38-152-70K (coarse) are replacement for these filters.
