    Had go with the 1-over oil drain plug from Advance/AZ/Reilly' or the
    like as it was stripping out. I know the routine, but the damage
    started before I got to it :) "I" use a torque wrench :) Still buy
    Honda filters but the only way to get the stock crush washer (dealer)
    to fit is to wrench it on in a vice ever so tenderly. So what size am
    I looking for...or how to tell on my own? Just curious if anyone has
    the specs on the tip of their tongue. Don't waste a lot of time on
    this, pls. Also, for those who don't know...basically walk into your
    dealer and ask for 'x' number of oil filters and they won't ask the
    model/type for anything from '86-2010 (which is almost everything).
    AFAIK the only difference is the S2000 filter, IF IF IF I remember
    correctly? Anyway, thanks again Beamer, Tigger, Nasty and the
    gang! :)

    It's 7/8" overall diameter, with a 9/16" hole in the middle.
    The OD's not really important, so an inch OD would do.

    You can get nylon and other types of washers at any auto parts store.

    I have some sitting right here.

    There is just one filter that fits most models (15400-PLM-A02), but
    there are a couple of other sizes in use, so they SHOULD ask you what it's
    going on.

    Don't waste a lot of time on this, please...
    Nice one, Lenny Bruce. I meant don't waste too much time trying to
    find the answer/research. If you know...then you know. That would be
    sufficient info.
    My point exactly. "I need an Accord filter"."I need a CRX filter".
    9.7/10 times (oh, and they know me) if they threw a filter at you/me,
    it would fit. Period. Pretty universal in the filter department by a
    friggin long shot.
    yep. I noted one of the two you mentioned. A "couple'" is two.
    S2000 is one. What's the other one, honestly? Curious now.
    Now back to sincerity: After doing the one-over plug I figgered I
    stay with the alum crush as the dealer does. No difference using
    nylon or similar so long as it has a crush/formable factor to it and
    won't melt/deform under compared to stiff generic steel
    washer?? I've never tested any other options but do remember nylon
    washers on a few cars over time. Maybe the best option considering my
    situation. And cheapest.

    And, yes, actually...despite the sarcasm...thanks Tigger! Much
    obliged yet again :)

    Probably. And an Acura version (maybe the 5-cylinder engine). I'd have to
    ask my parts guy to be sure.

    You can use just about any kind of washer you want. The dealer's is the
    /correct/ one, but if your drain plug doesn't hold too well, it may not be
    the best choice for you anymore.

    I did some experimentation years ago, and found that gaskets made of nylon
    or other gasketing materials held just fine with 20# of torque on the bolt.

    I try.

    pssst: Hey there Christopher Robin, he might appreciate it if you
    called him Tegger (as derived from "Integra") instead of Tigger (as
    found in Winnie-the-Pooh)

    "Tegger" is in fact derived from both Integra AND Tigger. When I thought of
    the name, my daughter was very small, and Tigger was her favorite Pooh

    I later discovered I was far from the first to use "Tegger" as a handle.

    <<I try. >>

    ....and we appreciate it. Smooch!!! (But only in a smart-ass kinda
    way!) :)

    Heh-heh! No offense intended. Me and a buddy bastardize every name,
    title, phrase, euphemism, etc possible as it comes to our minds. It's
    just a "thing". Nothin' personal except that it's fun...for me
    anyway!! :) Tigger, Beamer, and Nasty. AKA: TEGGER, JIM BEAM, and
    ELMO SHAGNASTY. A little levity mixed with proper 'thanks' and
    respect can't hurt, right? Besides, (laughing to self!!!!!!), Tigger
    has heard much worse! :^) BUT THE REAL QUESTION IS: What's the
    most wonderful thing about Tiggers???? Look it up..
    Sub-thread done! Now, back on topic, people. :)

    pick! All in fun. :) Happy Honda-ing everyone!
