I dont know the exact size, but just look for a new one. Make sure it will sit completely over the seat of the mbc, and wont slide through the spring. Just try home depot or somethin, you might try looking at ball bearings?

any steel Ball bearing will work. Ace Hardware around here is good for them. As stalker said, just take it in and size it up. Just needs to seal the hole and fit the area. If not, I can send you another one.

I found a couple of balls but they do not seem to fit. Just out of curiosity, how big should it be? Should it be able to slide down the mbc until it just pokes out of the narrowest part of the nozzle, or should it just sit on top of the widest opening of the narrowing nozzle? I have a ball that does each, but it slides down the middle of the spring. Bah. I cant wait to get this up and running again, the car feels so slow w/out it and the BOV makes tiny little fart sounds instead of the strong wooooosshhh.

Experiment - you can even improve on this design, possibly..
