Default !939 Flathead 221 Rear Seal

Short senario reassembly stalled for want of a rear seal , not supplied in Best Gasket O/haul kit. Had a seal but too small dia is 8mm. Rope seal needs to be 9.5mm.
My question: is the rear rope seal 91A-6347 of this dimension?
As the seal as fitted was this small dia of 8mm and was only touching in a couple of places, hence the rear oil leak.
Van Pelt has these rear seal kits so maybe best to get from him provided it is 9.5mm section.
Appreciate advice.

Hi Phil.Have just got my 81A engine running in the '38 and used a graphite seal and doesn't leak at all over quite a few miles.It is a square section rope of 9mm and impregnated with graphite.Comes with a cut off knife and guage.Best one yet for me.Cheers.

Have relooked at the O/haul kit I ordered and my error as this kit I ordered did not include 91A-6347K the rear seal. My mistake and not error in suppliers kit.
Pays to check before pushing that BUY NOW!!
