Crush Washer

I've used the same washer too - and I probably shouldn't have. As it 
gets worn it gets flat and hard and might trigger one to tighten the nut 
just a little more. You don't want it to come loose while riding, right? 
So just a tad more... sh*t - what was that cracking sound? Aaargh! The 
oil pan cracked... #%&?$*

Don't know about you, but I'm going to replace mine on a regular basis. 
And use Loctite. And use Plastic Padding... :-)
