I think it's a simple gasket that should come with the water pump.

I have the gasket that comes with the Water pump. Haynes manual states that there is an O ring that should be replaced when you reconnect the lower water rail to the water pump.
It was this O ring size that I was after.
Thanks

Indeed there is an O ring. I did mine some 4 years ago and I think the pump
I bought had the ring included.

I suggest you get a box of assorted rings. You'll more than likely find
a match.
Or disassemble first and measure.

Or pm me - I've got some (could only buy a bag of rings from the engineering supplies place) from when I did mine.

Happy to pop a couple in the post.
