Where to buy chime grommets?

Post by tinyrodent »

For a 1978 Stern Stars. I tried a grommet from my parts supply but it wasn't quite the right size, and the chime doesn't ring properly.

Brett, you can also buy grommets similar to that of varying sizes at homedepot in the misc plastic bins in the nuts and bolts section. Not sure if they would work but might be convenient to check out. Princess Auto also sells a rubber grommet kit.

Thanks for the grommets Colin! Sadly this doesn't appear to be the correct size for Stern Stars. I was able to get one into a hole with a lot of effort and a bar clamp, but it doesn't allow the screw to move freely, and the chime doesn't ring. :(

On page 64 of the 1979 Stern Parts Catalog is a full breakdown of the chime unit. But googling for part number 7A-107 I didn't find anything. :(
