Default Hangar 9 Fokker D.VII landing gear

Guys; I need some help. I have an old Hangar 9 Fokker D.VII. I need to replace the rubber O-rings that were used on the landing gear as dampeners. Those parts (HAN4240) are no longer available from Hangar 9, so I'm looking for replacements. Unfortunately, the original O-rings were replaced with a bungee cord material by the previous owner, so I can't use the old O-rings as a guide. Does anyone know of a suitable replacement, or at least the size and thickness of the originals? Thanks; Ernie P.

Okay; through trial and error, I found out a size o-ring that will work and the size of the screws that hold the wheels together, so I could replace them. Thanks; Ernie P.O-rings are #12 (3/16” O.D. x 5/8” I.D.) from Lowes. Screws for wheels are 4x1/2” SS, from Lowes.
