Rubber plugs for hydraulic jacks

Had a machine on two hydraulic jacks out in the yard. When I let the pressure off, both jacks blew the rubber plug out of the reservior, blowing a big squirt of oil out in the grass. Not too worried about oil, but can't find the plugs. They're little dome shaped affairs, hole they go in appears to be about 3/8 inch in dia. Anybody know a source of them??? Do they likely stock such an animal in auto parts stores? Surely I', mot the first to loose one, (or two). Extreme high temperatures we've been experiencing may have contributed to excessive pressure in resevoir.

I have used a few of these mushroom headed tire plugs that were in a box of stuff I got on an auction...worked perfect. Can't remember the brand, but they are used with a gun to install them in tires.

Probably about the best you're going to do is look over the selection of plugs, push pins, or whatever you call them(for holding panels on vehicles,etc.)at the auto parts store.

Had the same problem. Searched and never found any, so I tapped the hole for 1/8 inch pipe plug and solved the problem. DH
