Building up a Jern overhead for my '26 Touring, and would really like to seal it up good, especially the pan. I remember reading somewhere about a 'composite' washer that had a O-ring attached to the I.D. that would deform and seal upon tightening. Is this just a pipe dream of mine, or is there such an critter. I didn't have any success with McMaster Carr, but maybe I didn't know what to call it. I'm interested in other solutions to this problem, as I'm sure there are several out there in "T" land....Thanks.......Byron

If you mean the inspection pan bolts, here's the item. The generic term is "self-sealing fasteners", and there's quite a selection out there.
