Do you mean a rubber tube between gland and stern tube? Or the packing inside the gland?

Probably Brian Wards at brundall or ASAP supplies at beccles.

It's inside the brass housing that you turn to push grease into the stern tube

Do you mean the grease cup?  

I have never seen one with a washer.

Inside the stern gland greaser there is a brass washer then a rubber washer and a metal one when I screw it down the grease just comes past the washers instead of going into the tube

It may be better to purchase a new greaser either one that screws into the stern gland or perhaps a remote greaser which comes with a tube and a fitting to screw into the stern gland. (just saw the post from dnks34

along the same lines as my post)

I think starbrite just needs a spare part for his existing setup, sounds like something like this:

Online catalogues are a right pita if you don't know the proper name for something, a good old fashioned paper one is so much easier to flick through till you see it.

Is it definately a washer on the piston and not a large O Ring? 

Ive just looked at a picture of remote greaser on sheridan marine (link below) and with the piston removed it looks like it could be an o ring but it may not be the same setup to what you have.

Thought it worth mentioning as if it is an O ring it might be easier to find a new one.

Thanks for that it's on an 84 connoisseur and I'm learning all the time on mine when you unscrew it there's a brass washer with a rubber cup washer like the one on ASAP but smaller then a metal washer holds every thing in place I'll get the makers name on Thursday

If you are able to post a photo someone may recognise it and know if parts are available and where to get them from.

If you cannot source a replacement rubber washer then there are listings on e bay for Black Neoprene rubber washers with diameter from 20mm to 50mm and with various centre hole sizes.You may be able to use one of those.
