I am a “buy a box” guy. However, I am also a poor planner. I buy bulk to overcome this, then end up borrowing from a neighbor or waiting on my order because I forgot to re-order. Filters, gaskets, cotter pins, you get the idea.

I won’t be afraid to anneal these if I run short. Thanks Steve.

By the way, I just replaced a PS Pump on an older Toyota Pickup. I could not keep the banjo fitting from leaking. A quick internet search revealed that most of these replacements come with cheap Chinese copper washers that have age hardened, or never where properly treated. Based on this oringinal post, I annealed them, and presto, leak free. (This was after I melted one with my torch, so, be careful with your heat source, the electric stove top would work well.)

Good post Steve.
