V8 Oil drain plug crush washers

I have been unable to find copper crush washers for the V8 oil drain plug. I have checked all the local hardware and auto part stores with no success. Also check Max Merritt with no luck. Does anyone have a source for these?

Sincere thanks.

MM does sell them. You just have to search by part number.

It's the same washer as 54pac has here:https://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=28261&post_id=272156#forumpost272156

You can also find them on Amazon.

A few years ago I bought a box of assorted copper washers from Harbor Freight. That box has saved by bacon several times.

I just used a larger one today to seal the oil drain plug on the Jackard motor.

Also have used them to seal various bolts that go into oil and water passages.

Thanks Kev,

I looked at Harborfreight but the 80 pack of copper crush washers was only available "in store" and not on-line. Next time I am in Atlanta I will pick one up.

Best regards

Yes pick up one of the HF copper washer kits.

Note that it does not include the .600 ID needed on the master brake cylinder on virtually all manual brake cars since the 30's.
