Latest post of the previous page:

I would call that a damn fine result, esp given that mine lasted all of a few hours. The replacements seem to be quite well made.
I have one in each of my AFM air boxes and both are still happily holding vacuum.

I can feel the pain of a thousand little cuts each time I have to dismantle the fine original quality of this fine original automobile and put in parts from "other" sources. Now, the diaphragm is working, and it fit, and it did not give me fits. But, the BobD is due for deeper surgery, coming up.

This would be a good item to put in the Parts Known To Be Acceptable thread in the Engine Forum.

I can't either. Try Samba classifieds, and then do my procedure. It is good for about 7 years.
