What type of o-rings

What type of o-rings do I need to rebuild a reg? Such as urethane o-rings for all of them or do some need teflon or other forms? I'll be rebuilding a bob long torpedo. Local shop didn't have what I need so I was going to order online and it brought this question to mind. I did try a search, my skills could def. be lacking in that area as I didn't find anything.

There's one teflon seal but from my research it looks like Buna would work ok. I'd assume 70D

You see this?

Don't get the teflon o'ring for the seat, teflon is too hard and won't seal properly, it's supposed to be D70 urethane; alternatively, you can get a Palmer's reg seat, it works best IMO.

Have you contacted Blast? Since they produced the reg, they should have rebuild kits available. If not, thenx you might need to buy the orings yourself. And when possible, buy the exact orings required for it. You don't want to guess or go cheap. Some guns/regs will fail quickly if you don't use the proper oring. No sense doing the job twice, if you don't have to.

I know how this sounds, but the manual is wrong about the teflon o'ring (among other things), ask BLAST or anyone at intimidator owners group, they use the same seats as the Palmer's LPR's, System X regulators, Diablo wrath HPR's, and a slew of other regulators from the same period that share the valve core design. If you don't want Palmer's seats, you can punch your own out of a sheet of urethane or 006 size D70 urethane o'rings will work as well.
