If you need photos/dimensions of rings to replace them or have them made up, let me know as I have a 753 with the same setup.

to be honest a couple of suitable washers would do the trick - your local hardware store probably has them.

they are different dimensions though! Outside diameter I think from memory is the same but internal diameter is different.

Well... machining washers of any type is no problem for anyone lucky enough to own a lathe. For the bumpers, I had good results with top out urethane bumpers for motocross shocks.
