if you have a little plumbers blow lamp you can give your old washer a bit of a warm up to soften it up . I saw that on how a bike is born . I have changed a good few fork seals and never had a leak no need to go nuts tight it up either cos it will open your hole trying to get it done the next time .:thumbright:

For some reason the original photo won't download onto my old iPad. I assume it's made of copper? If so you can anneal it by as mentioned by warming up, slightly red, then drop it into a bowl of water.
