Are 1 & 5/8" inch gaskets available for older Toro 570 sprinkler heads?

Replacing these small gaskets is easier than replacing the entire sprinkler body, but I haven't been able to find them available for purchase lately. Each circular gasket is 1 and 5/8 inches in diameter. There is a 3/4" hole in the center to accomodate the shaft and a 1/16" hole in the periphery. Does anyone know where I might purchase some? Thank you.

Would you pay five bucks apiece for one of those gaskets? {if not, that's why you can't find them}

Are the sprinklers on metal risers? If not you can just unscrew the body without digging a hole and stick a new one in there.
I forgot all about those washers. I know I bought a few but that's been 20 years ago. I'm sure there's a couple of stale ones still on my truck.
You could always ask at an irrigation supply store. You never know.
If you had the tools you could make your own.
