    Ok for all you engineers out there.

    I have two O-rings one id 6mm & 2mm cross section and another id 7mm & 1.5 cross section.

    I have a bore of 10mm and a piston 9.96mm. What size groove do I need in the piston for hydraulic dynamic use (this is for a powered draw bar) the piston will move about 7mm in the bore.

    Machine tools and 3D printing supplies. Expanding constantly.

    Mike & George Many thanks for the homework you have provided for me. I have found this as well https://oringcalculator.eriksgroup.com/# but I can't seem to get the answer from it. So I will sit down and bang my head against the wall for a bit
