Why not give Excel UK and quick call, they may have them or direct you to the best supplier. Have you tried Pacer Marine as they do Bravo pumps and various fittings. I have found both to be helpful.

Would a flat hose washer (garden hose) take up the space?

I use this on my excel.
If you do get one there are 2 spacers (green and yellow) on it. Take the deepest one off and just try it with the smallest spacer on.

This is where i got it from
