 :)) :)) :))

come on man, you know I'm just being stupidly silly again...

good on you to hare the find, it' all in fun... don't take it seriously...

and you have a great idea there, I'll drop a note to Gary, and give him numbers for both the "bolt seal washer" and a "generic" O-Ring, he can supply in a "rear lube change Kit"...

Brilliant idea  :great: :great: :great: :great:

oh, here's the ones from Autozone.. :great: :great:

Sort of like the rubber o-ring Barron? Maybe I should make a big deal out of my find, and then have Coggers mail me an envelope with some money and I’ll send them two o-rings. Then I’ll get tired of that, and have Murph take over. But wait.... Murph sells the oil drain plug washers. So Murph just needs to stock the final drive washers and we are done and no need for this threads like this.   :s_laugh:

Yup, no need to ask a community what they are doing when a******* are just going to troll the thread with ridicule, for taking care of your bike. 

We'll just leave everything up to the vendors and remain silent when a "member" is looking for ideas? Fok it.

I bought these, fit all the cars and bikes.

they get some bad reviews, but they work for me.

Sometimes I take the brass or aluminum washer and flip it over and reuse and have had no issues doing that.

I can’t be sure, but I think the grooves and marks on the crush washers that I saw comes from contact with the bolt head and not the flat surface of the oil pan.  So I’m thinking flipping it over might not make a good seal.  Thanks for adding the other source.

correct...


I did mention that... :beerchug:


Most or all of these drain bolts today, have a larger washer face "formed" onto the underside of the Hex, and also have "concentric/annular grooves" on that face;
This assists in "sealing" the 'softer' washer... as long a the bolt fits thru, with minimal clearance ( like maybe .010"-.020") and also extends to the outer diameter of the face on the bolt head, it's fine...

.

you are correct, the grooves assist the seal, and even when "flipped" to re-use, still create an effective "torturous path" for any fluid to overcome.. now, granted, neither the crank case, nor the rear drive are "pressurized", so sealing is much easier accomplished.
