There are four washers in this pack - the one at the top shown purple (item 32 in the diagram) is larger than the others - and two of the washer shown in blue are provided (because you’ll need to remove this one every time you release the banjo.)
For easy identification of these Blue duplicates, run your finger over the edge and you’ll feel two small pips.
If you are just re-installing the Banjo fitting after maintenance, grab the third - the one shown in yellow. This will easily slip over the stem and lives up against the stem’s hex; then install the banjo fitting over the stem.
We’re departing from the specified design here because as you can see from the background diagram in the top image, part number 35 is on both sides of the banjo, whereas we are providing different size washers ( blue and yellow).
Install one of the washers with the two pips on its edge and straightaway you’ll notice this washer is a tight fit and needs to be twisted over the threads - this is intentional. As the cap nut tightens this joint, the extra material on the washer ID will deform into the the Banjo, improving the seal.
The same is true for the large washer ( shown purple in the image) You’ll only need to replace this if you needed to unscrew the stem from the Valve (item 31). It too will need to be ‘twisted’ over the threaded end of the stem.
The extra large washer sealing the valve (item 32) to the body of the compressor is not included in the kit.
We took the time to duplicate not just the material softness of the Russian original Crush washers but provided an exacting fit too, so you can install with confidence and be sure this critical, high vibration joint stays tight.
Torque this Banjo joint with sufficient pressure to deform all washers and remember to safety wire the cap nut upon completing installation.
The background diagram of the compressor is one of 21 images in the M14-P poster book which you can find here.
