As you probably have already seen, that vacuum cleaner has limited replacement parts available.

Here is a link for that parts diagram listing: Kenmore Vacuum Cleaner 116.40540 Parts . I do not have the specifications on those parts. I will contact the manufacture for that information and update this thread once I receive that information.

Hello Ed. I attempted to obtain the dimensions of those parts. That information is not available since the manufacturer is no longer in business. We have referred others to the MD Central Vacuum.com website mentioned above and they were able to find parts that worked for their system. We hope that this will help. Let us know if you need more assistance.

I am sorry to hear that MD Central Vacuum was not able to help you with those specifications. They do not appear to be available. To resolve this problem, you may need to order a part and see if it will fit. You should be able to return the part if you cannot use it.
