Guide Size

I have a conventional Penn Squadron I want to fix a running guide on but don’t know the guide size. It’s a single foot guide and the others on the rod look like hardloy inserts.

The out diameter of the remaining guide (repairing because I lost the insert) is (about since I don’t have an extremely accurate measuring device) .95 cm or almost exactly 3/8”.

The inner diameter of the remaining guides is harder to pinpoint but it looks like 7mm.

Anyone have a collection of guides they can measure and help me find the right “oem” looking replacement?

Ian is it a v frame guide? I have an assortment of many different frames. Does it match another guide on rod? Hardloy is a gray insert. I can bring to meeting picnic and give to Matt if i have a match.
