Default Sanke spear O-ring

I have been using origional Sanke keg spear o-rings but need new ones. Does anyone have the correct O-ring specifications or the part number? I have searched all over the place to find this but no success.

I dont know the exact replacement but I have used these before and they are cheap and even easier to get in and out.

Thanks, I found those too but want just the o-ring in a 25 pack to reduce cost.

Install Tip: You can use a piece of 1/2 sq steel tubing under the rolled edge of the keg as a lever to push on a 1/2 PVC end cap to compress the o-ring when installing. a 2.5 foot long lever can be held by a helper while you install the snap ring.

Edit: I measured everything and the only one that comes close is #5018T261 1 3/4 ID X 2 in OD x .125 section from McMaster.com.
