It gets an o-ring. The exploded view below may help.

Would you guess a standard rubber o ring from a hardware store would work or is there a auto grade of some sort ?

In all honesty, I don't know what the O-ring material differences might or might not be, between a garden variety O-ring and one for use in a P/S pump.

There should have been a small baggie w/the O-rings needed to do the job included w/the pump. I'd call down to the parts store and have them see if the O-ring(s) are in the box of another pump like yours.
