Does Ball still make rubber seals for the older zinc caps? No. Ball doesn't, but some others now do. However, home canning experts do not recommend that you use them. The modern flat lid and metal ring is superior in reliability and safety. If you insist in using the rubber ring system, do not use old rubber rings: they have aged and will probably not seal effectively, especially on an older jar. You can get new rubber canning rings quite inexpensively here:
