Default Missing a nipple......on my rear caliper.

I'm so close to getting my rear caliper mounted. My last hang up is a missing piece. There is a rod from the mount that fits into a hole on the caliper. I'm pretty sure there's supposed to be a rubber insert that fits over that rod and in that caliper hole. The hole on the caliper has an ID of 10.5mm and the rod is 7.75mm in diameter.

Can the rubber insert be found? Anything else that can take its place? I tried looking for rubber washers that size but no luck.

I ended up wrapping the rod in hurricane and gorilla tape. fits nice and snug in there for now. Not a permanent fix, but it should take me around the block

Hehe, just like how I only have 3 nuts on my wheel hub.
