I have a primus multifuel stove (not omni fuel) and over time and use it has a leaky valve .. trouble shooting it, I'm guessing it's a worn o ring ... can't seem to find any primus spares in india .. don't even know the actual size of the o ring to find a local substitute.. any ideas ? Anyone ?

Probably not much help, but maybe you can have stuff delivered from abroad?

Not sure if this will help but my husband had the same problem but while backpacking in the UK. He went to a local motor garage, they gave him an 'O' ring which fit the stove. Hope this helps!

Thank you all .. the plan is similar, planning to hit the local hardware stores and mechanics for a substitute.. perhaps even some gear rental shops to see if i can salvage one from a broken stove ..

Most cities have stove repairmen in the older and poorer sections of the city. Maybe they can give you some quick fix. Which city are you in right now?
