    I don't know about diameters but thickness is shown for these TWO different seals, both of which are made of copper.

    #185165 is 33/64" and is available from SASCO for $1.70

    #185164 is 39/64" and is also available for $1.70

    Sorry, but I can't say for certain which of these if any fit YOUR particular hill holder, since I don't KNOW which one you have. There were a number of different hillholders that were used thru the years.[B)]
