Default A common replacement for?

For some reason, over the years I have developed an addiction of sorts, to the Holley 3259 "le Mans" bowl carbs...I have several extra pair of bowls, and have used them successfully on a couple of projects. Sadly, a good long time has passed, and I need to replace the rubber grommets on the transfer tube.
I can't find any local place that sells anything close to that grommet. I don't believe that the 715 cfm carb is the only application for this grommet. There has to be a common replacement part, but I don't know what to look for.

Thoughts?

You are correct. They were an industrial item. I would ask a dealer in brass industrial fittings for a cross reference replacement seal for a Eastman® IMPERIAL FLEX PAT’D 1-4 fitting.

Parker 60VL Buna-N Sleeve, Same as Imperial Eastman and Dayco 60FL Flex Flareless Brass Fittings

You are welcome. New Imperial® brand fittings can probably purchased through Carl's Ford parts but they are not exactly like the 1960s assemblies. (Some commercial rebuilders use new fittings and stainless steel tubes.) Eastman® changed small details more than once. New fittings I bought in bulk in the 1980s to service GT350 carburetors were not just like the 1960s ones.

I found a 10 pack at Amazon for a good price, other than shipping- and ordered them today. At this point I am more concerned with function, than anything else. I will report back when they arrive, and give feed back on fit and function.
thanks again!

They showed up yesterday afternoon! My only complaint is how "over packed" these things were...in a box, in bubble wrap! But I now have enough for 5 transfer tubes, and that will keep me busy enough for a while.
Thanks again!!!

You are welcome. You could probably have parts cut from a variety of rubber compounds by an industrial gasket and hose supply house. They would most likely be more expensive that way.
