Hi Eric. Sorry for the delay in replying we are cruising in and put of email contact. I couldnt say the type of insertion rubber but i made the diaphragm out of 2mm. I thought of putting two in but didnt. I would think that 2x2mm would be more flexible than 1x 3mm. Anyway i will see how the 1x 2mm goes. The flap I made out of 3mm. Two thickneses glued together to give 6 on the flap, 3 at the flex hinge and 6 where the little bar is screwed through to locate it. The 6mm on the flap is much thicker than the standard so less prone to "curving". I got a special rubber cement to glue it but i am sorry my memory wont stretch 5 years. I would think that the glue out of a cycle tyre repair kit would do but what i got was reputed to be supeior. Hope this helps.
