    You have 2 rings at your disposal. An empty ring currently fitted to suit and another ring on the existing neck seal so you could give it a go. DIRDirect is where I got mine from I think

    This may sound harsh but to me it sounds like you are looking for excuses. The buoyancy shift for a full to empty cylinder is already more than this 1.3kg difference you state.
