Originals are compressed glass fiber if I remember correctly. I've made them in the past out of graphite-embedded gasket material(looks shiny gray). Much higher temp resistance than the OEM washer. the material I use is a woven stainless flatmesh bonded into graphite-embedded sealing coating. It actually darkens your fingers like pencil lead if you rub it between your fingers.

I haven't made one in a year or so, but if you give me the dimensions again(inner and outer ID, SAE or metric doesn't matter) I'll go ahead and make them and drop them in the mail for you. I'm pretty sure I have just enough left to make two washers. I coat two of them with copper spray sealant and stack them on top of each other before assembling the lower chamber body onto the valve body of the gate.

Send the dimensions and your mailing address to me at my email address listed below.
