    I can measure it m8 find exact size..but went to b&q in the plumbing section and it is actually a washer used to seal toilet cistern coupling pipes,if you have b&q near you,you'll see it in there.

    Superb, I'm constantly wiping the oil off the mentioned area. I'll pop to B&Q and purchase the washer.
