Crush Washer

Post by hummbird » Fri Mar 29, 2019 6:48 am



i am going to change the oil in my 82 1100 aspencade and i see it has a metal crush washer on the oil drain plug , how often does it need changed or does it ever need changed as long as it is not leaking. i need your guys thoughts on this one please.

Crush washers are a one time item. The toyota dealer in town will give you a crush washer when you buy a oil filter from the dealer. Parts man told me when service is done on vehicles they will use a new washer every time. For me ,washers changed every time. Piece of mind. part number 94109-14000 washer, 28 ft. lb. on the drain plug. We all know that there are original washers that have been on bikes since new that are still sealing and reused. Do it right the first time. ps...buy two

i already bought 10, but i just didnt know if i should change them with every oil change. i also didnt know how much trouble it will be to get off the drain bolt as i have never tried that yet, and i guess i was afraid i might make it leak if i changed it and i didnt know if it will crush properly or not as i have never changed one before

good for you..the washer comes off easy enough. Now get back to oil change and let us know how things are going. I guess you have a motorcycle, haven't seen a picture yet, we like pictures.
