That O ring is important. Possibly you can get a smaller diameter O Ring, but don't install the wear bushing without one because water will enter the C drive at this point. Something is not right with that bushing if it is too tight for an O ring.
Possibly Vladimir has a new wear bushing in his spares that he could loan you and you could order a new one shipped to him, or maybe he will sell you one of his spares. From what you say, I am concerned about the origin and the specifications of that wear bushing. Have you used a micrometer to measure the difference in the inside diameter between old and new? If you do not have a good micrometer, buy one, you will need it for other things. Maybe Vladimir can help you sort this issue out?
