    had an oil change, now ive got a small seap from the plug, mate says i'll need a new washer.
    is it a standard part?
    can i make it myself, i'm a toolmaker to trade so its easy enough for me, what i need is the dimensions and the material type.
    or is it easier just to buy one?
    thanks for your help in advance.

    My life your expensive ! lol
    when you fit the new plug make sure you work to the correct torque setting.
    Alot of people strip the thread in the alloy sump
