Detroit uses aluminum crush washers (with no rubber) on their fuel system, and theirs is waaayy more sensitive to fuel leaks than Cummins is. I have seen alot of Cummins engines roll into work with copper and aluminum seals as appose to the proper steel/rubber washers. I'm not saying its right, but it seems to work.

I hate to tell you how many of the steel/rubber seal that i have thrown in the garbage that were never used...

Thanks CaptainCummins for the reply. Are you saying the aluminum and copper crush washers DO or DON'T work ? I could see them possibly not working if you were connecting to something aluminum that might not be able to torque tight enough without stripping the thread , but a steel connection should .

They will work, alot of the Detroit stuff is steel banjo bolts with aluminum crush washers into aluminum housings, and they are running in excess of 100 psi through them. I do like the Cummins seal washers because the rubber on them holds the seal onto the banjo bolt, making the ones that are in a hard to reach area easier to install without dropping a seal washer off into the engine bay.
