Im building my first Snap and i need to get a seal in it but non of the 1-1/4 washers i can get right now are the right sizes. The ID is relatively small, because a longshot plunger head wont fit. Is there any things i can do to get a decent seal in it? and help is useful and any other info u need(like ID or whatever) although i don't know why you would need it.

If the plunger tube you're using for the snap is 1 1/4" PVC, then you need a 1 1/2" rubber washer to get a good seal. 1 1/4" washers are used to pad the front of the plunnger head so when it strikes the front bushing the impact is lessened. Just follow the instructions here for more info:Just follow the instructions here for more info

Post some pictures.

What are you lubing it with? Sometimes the washers will buckle if you don't use the right stuff.
