Sorry, when I picked up the gaskets at dealer, asked about the washer, told
me it was just a copper washer. Got it at the bearing place I got the Viton

What size are these ? Anyone who has replaced o-rings with the viton ones could

you please post the sizes so when I run across a place that has them I can grab
the right ones for the eventual change over. Nothing like having the right
parts needed on hand.

You might wanna consider replacing it – with something different
than the fibre original washer. Maybe you can find a copper washer
that will fit. Or maybe one of those fancy steel washers with the
rubber around the inner edge.

The plug gasket is a copper washer now.

Do you mean that it’s now a copper washer from the factory? Happen
to have a part number?
