Yes, any Cory, New Cory, Corning or Silex Lox-In will fit it.  Ebay.  Don't buy the new Cona glass rod; it works best with the Cona pot.

BJava, I bought a Cory filter rod off ebay for my Yama and I  have a question about the amount of water the pot can now hold.  With the cloth filter, I could fill it to the 5 cup mark.  With the glass rod, water gets pushed into the upper chamber, before I even apply heat.  I guess the rod takes up more space, which pushes the water into the upper chamber?

You should probably assemble the funnel onto the base after you've heated the water most of the way.

I usually add the grounds after the water has gone north, but many people find it easier to add the grounds to the funnel (after putting the rod in) before putting the funnel in the base.

+1.  I never put the top on until the water is heated.  Only after the march north does the coffee go in, when the water is at 195.

I used the Silex glass rod and it simply didn't work.  I started over and used the cloth filter which worked like a charm (of course) which is what I'll use from now on.

Take a look at your Silex.  The tension springs unwind themselves down on the shaft.  Make sure that the 'thread' of the Silex Lox-in is 'threaded' as far north on the shaft as it will go.

Hate to disagree, but both the Cory and Cona drainers (new and old) are virtually interchangeable, and both will fit in nearly every vac pot. Or at least in almost all units in my collection.

The "New Cory" and "old" Cory rods are virtually identical. The new Cona drainer is smaller (and hence lighter) than the older model. For stovetop vac pots, I've a slight preference for the old Cona or one of the Cory rods. If you're using an alcohol flame, it really doesn't matter. The smaller new Cona fits somewhat more comfortably in some Asian vac pots like Kono, which has a very narrow funnel tube.

Sorry, but again that's bollocks. The hex shape of the Silex is what makes it leak. The Silex fits best in those Silex vac pots it was designed for, and absolutely sucks when used in almost any other siphons.

We are each speaking of our own experience.  I would guess that might differ and I will stick with the Cona not functioning in my 5- and 8-cup Yamas.

The "New Cory" and "old" Cory rods are virtually identical.

They are similar, with the descending bottom portion of the new Cory running 3" and the earlier Cory running 2 3/8."

The new Cona drainer is smaller (and hence lighter) than the older model. For stovetop vac pots, I've a slight preference for the old Cona or one of the Cory rods. If you're using an alcohol flame, it really doesn't matter. The smaller new Cona fits somewhat more comfortably in some Asian vac pots like Kono, which has a very narrow funnel tube.

I have the 43.5g Cona and 45.5g Cona and find that neither seats well with my Yama stove tops, even with special care to ensure reduced turbulence so the rod doesn't dance.  I brew with water at 198F or 92C.  My grind is about 10% finer than a pourover/drip grind. I experience grinds and seepage with them. Thanks for pointing out the weight differences.  I hadn't checked them for weight before your post.

Sorry, but again that's bollocks. The hex shape of the Silex is what makes it leak. The Silex fits best in those Silex vac pots it was designed for, and absolutely sucks when used in almost any other siphons.

Bollocks, eh?  <grins>  The Silex springed units work in my 5- and 8-cup stovetop units.  I use them weekly.  I prefer the Pyrex for the 8-cup as the spring descends sufficiently.  I have to use fork tines to fish down the chain/hook when using the Silex on the 8-cup.
