Thank you for the input. I think replacing the crush washers might do it. They are metric but something has to be close. Good ideas, I'll try auto parts store next time I get anywhere near one (40+ miles). Or perhaps the mail order place I get British bike parts from.
Will fiber washers hold up to propane?

I agree, even though the sealant did seal and shows no sign of leakage, it's not a warm fuzzy feeling knowing it could explode any moment. I have no idea how it holds up to propane exposure. I want it fixed correctly.

Thank you

Metric oil pan washers are available in 12mm and 14mm sizes. I am not sure if the fiber washers would hold up, but I would be more confident in using them, than using sealers on the existing washers.
