Don't take this the wrong way, but why are you spending $ unnecessarily on 
OEM stuff like oil filters and crush washers when there are so many less 
expensive (and in some cases superior) alternatives available?

Crush washers:
Sears Hardware $0.50 ea (fiber, non-reusable)
Pep-Boys $1.79 / two-pack (copper, reusable after annealing)

Oil filters: (all about $4-$6 ea)
CarQuest: 89941
Emgo: 10-37500
Fram: CH6012
Hastings: LF571
NAPA: 4941
Perf-Form: J-501
Purolator: ML16812
Triumph: 1210031
Vesrah: SF-4004
WIX: 24941

Not trying to start a flame war here, just trying to understand the
