What is this gasket/o'ring for?

I see that a couple of o'rings/gaskets come with diesel fuel filters. The one I am not familiar with is the small flat one a little larger than a quarter. Where does that go?

It goes on the threaded pipe that the filter screws on to. Be sure to remove the old one.

Jarvis....Many people get in trouble and find their coach is acting up by not replacing that o-ring or not removing the old one. The o-ring doesn't fit that tightly, but sometimes the old one will stay stuck to the threads as Tom noted above. Make sure you remove it and then install the new one.

Changed mine not long ago. I had to use a mirror and work the old one off and install the new one. There is also a similiar o-ring on the chassis fuel filter.

X2. These guys have it right. Make sure you remove the old one and install the supplied new one on the threaded shaft.
