    Disconnect seals (inside the liquid disconnect)

    I took apart my black plastic ball lock disconnect as it was not flowing. The seals inside were all torn up. Does anyone know if the inside parts are available? I can find 1 place in the states but $15 postage on a $3 part is not cool. Cheers Dan
