tl;dr: Does anyone know parts number for the square o-ring that goes with Uro aluminum crackpipe 022121050PRM?

2003 Eurovan MV Weekender, years back put the Uro parts crackpipe on when I was replacing cracked Thermostat housing. Recently, found oil in coolant. Different shops giving bad/contradictory diagnoses. Just replaced oil cooler, and have been flushing the system primarily through crack pipe drain. Now the o ring on the draing plug has failed, and I am loosing coolant out the crack pipe. Brick wall

Worst comes to worst, I can reorder the entire pipe for the plug, but would love to just order the o-ring if anyone else has had this same issue, and knows part number/dimensions. Please help!

URO customer service is pretty good based on my last interaction via chat on their website

I have that exact same aluminum crack pipe. It was stupid cheap, so I'd just get another. I don't recall any square o-rings, but it's been a while.

As a public service announcement, I'll remind folks that if you haven't replaced the thermostat housing on your VR6 EV, do it. They all crack. All. Of. Them. Always.
