Allen Motor Scythe (1950s Model TS Petrol tap

This petrol tap leaks badly because the original cork sleeve has shrunk. What can I replace it with. Not rubber tube, but silicon rubber, possibly? I would appreciate some guidance.

Just passing on a tip.

Just passing on a tip. Regarding my leaky tap, where the cork gasket had shrunk: Well, I simmered the pull-out bit, with intact cork, in a pan of water with a couple of drops of washing up liquid, for 10 minutes. The cork swelled back to where it should be. I rinsed it, and dried it in the sun, and it now works perfectly.
