I have blown the o-ring on my 79 930 while at a DE at Watkins Glen.
Did you one better by taking a trip to town at the local hardware store to find an o-ring that might match. Found one too small that of course was in inches and with a little bit of stretching and some DUCT TAPE got it running enuff to drive it home the 500 miles to Detroit.
Not a fun experience, but I do all my own wrenching and this way I know it is done right. Also don't trailer it to the track, but get there the old fashioned way and drive the car there. Needless to say I now carry spares in my track tool kit.
