If you change the seals(which normally does not wear because it is harder than the bronze ring) do not forget to change the bronze ring in ALL CASES.

Conteco in Germany said they could only provide them in bulk and even then, they were incredibly expensive. I was referred by the US Corteco rep to:
Carolina Seal, Inc.
1424 Cross Beam Dr.
Charlotte, NC 28217
He was able to provide the seal for <$7.00 each. Note that most substitutes do not have SS springs, but the ones he supplied included SS. He did a great job of tracking down alternatives when faced with Corteco's minimum order requirement.
