Fibre or copper washers - diff breather

Recommended Posts

Morning all,

I've found the source of my diff oil leak was a blocked breather, so that's all cleaned up and the oil changed - at 5am this morning because I couldn't sleep!

Everything I've read tells me the breathers should have copper crush washers, but on both of my diff breathers I've found fibre washers both above and below the banjo.

Fibre washers seem easier to find from BandQ and the likes, whereas copper seem a sbit more difficult. So is there any reason I shouldnt just get some new fibre washers and use them?
