Nikon DK-17M missing spacer ring

Hello all,
I recently picked up a  Nikon DK-17M magnifying finder for my D700  in like new condition for just $1.00, which is the good part of the story. However, the bad part is the spacer ring as shown in the left of the pic (borrowed from some old DPR thread) is missing.
I wear glasses and use a rubber eyecup. However when I try to use the DK-17M with a DK-19 rubber eyecup equivalent (chinese copy) because of the lack of spacer ring the rubber eyecup retainer ring becomes loose and comes off ,dislodging the rubber eyecup.
Is there any solution for using DK-17M plus DK-19 with the missing spacer ring? If not,  will there be any problem if I use DK-17M alone without the spacer ring but without the rubber eyecup as well?
I guess I have another rubber eyecup lying somewhere , can I use its retainer ring in place of DK-17M's spacer ring ?
Thanks
Somak
