Default Rebuild kit for Airco torch?

I inherited a really cool Airco oxy/acet torch that I would like to restore to usable condition rather than polish up for a wallhanger.
IIRC, it is a model 6960.
Haven't had any luck finding a rebuild kit locally or even online so far, can anyone here point me in the right direction?

Thanks for trying.
I searched their site and the closest thinig I could find was a rebuild kit for a Concoa(Airco) 8400 regulator.
Don't seem to carry any Airco rebuild kits anywhere I've googled.
I guess I will take it to a local shop that rebuilds and go through their O-ring stock to see what we can come up with.

Try contacting them on the phone, most businesses don't list all of the items they carry, just the most popular items.

The wall hanger idea is a good one.

Seal-Seat may have parts. If you use O-rings, use Viton for durability.

Double-check the number.

Rebuild kits aren't common online for the simple reason that rebuilders don't want to cut into their own business.

Anyone with OA stuff they don't need might put it up in the for sale forum. There are MANY Aircos out there and they are plentiful on Ebay if someone needs parts or an organ donor.
