Power Gear hydraulic drain plug washer type?

Should a Power Gear Leveling hydraulic reservoir drain plug have a washer of some kind? Cork, rubber O ring, what? Right now there is nothing but the plug, itself, and there is a small but persistent drip. This is from 2004. All the exploded drawings and parts lists I can find make no mention of a washer.

Thanks for your help.

You might try a thin copper washer.

Actually, it is much like a drain plug in an oil pan like you would find on a car or truck. Metal to metal. I guess the only real difference is, in this case, the oil doesn't get hot. Well, not oil, exactly... it's Mercon V transmission fluid.

I've never seen a pipe dope kind of substance on an oil pan. I think I'd be afraid of fluid contamination. Yes, shouldn't use much but, still.

I'm thinking it's a crush washer of some kind, just don't know which material.

When I drained my tank a couple of years ago, my plug had an o-ring on it. Take your plug to a hydraulic shop or a shop that makes hydraulic hoses, etc. and they should be able to fix you up. Sorry I don't have the size but it was very big or thick.
