Default Manifold "O" rings

Does anyone know the diameter of the manifold "O" rings (inside or outside) for a S&S Super E Shorty carburetor? It is on a 71 Sportster.

I have just fitted an S&S E to my project bike. It has Band type heads so I used a band manifold and bands. I have new O rings and O ring manifold that came with the carb though so can measure them for you.
Am away with work but can look at them tomorrow evening if nobody chips in before then.

I have some new ones still in the package.these fit my Super B which has the same size butterfly as the E 1-7/8''.i.d.1-9/16'' o.d.1-15/16'' that makes the band width 3/16''.usually when someone asks for o-ring size they plan on buying them from a hardware store?

...or from a heavy equipment mechanic. I've gotten more than a few out of the company's O-ring kit!

Default O ring

They should be the same size as the sportster or shovelhead o rings. And come in the top end rebuild kits from James
