Bill, I don't have the V notch plug , maybe that plug is a larger diameter ,which explains the oversized O ring. I have had little to no seepage of oil and I put a little grease on the o-ring,so should be fine.

Pat, yes, but in my experience, 100% of the sealing is done by the O Ring. I believe that whether or not you need a washer depends on the vertical alignment of the V notch bolt.
I ordered a bunch of parts from Maude ,including an O ring for the C-Drive drain plug. It came in a pouch with a crush washer ,the O ring was to large for some reason ,but my question is. Is there supposed to be a crush washer on the drain plug? There never has been since I bought the boat.
