Ok I don't have a new o ring on hand so I measured up an old one.

I used  caliper to approximate the circumference of the o-ring ID

OK so I measured 3.840" using the caliper. So the approximate Circumference (Inside diameter) is 3.840" X 2 = 7.68"
 Circumference = pie (3.14159) X diameter
so to find the inside diameter divide the circumference by pie (3.14159)
7.68"/3.14159 = 2.45" or 6.223 CM or 62.2 mm
The measure thickness is .085" or 2.15mm remember that this is a used o-ring
So if you find an o-ring close to 62.2mm inside diameter and 2.15mm thickness you should be good.
I have a metric o-ring assortment in my shop but nothing that big.
Hope this helps. Once I get a new o-ring in the future I will measure it it up and update this thread.
