I took a magnet and searched the oil pan. Nothing

Mine was missing, local HW didn't have any so I ended up finding one close enough then ground it to fit. Looks hideous but seems to work just fine.

Found a fiber washer that is close. Wonder if it will make much of a difference. Not sure how oil will affect fiber. It’s ridged

I bought one at Honda Town. The owner said people typically throw them out with the oil filter.

You could buy and replace that washer many, many times before it equals the cost of a screw-on adapter.

Heck, even replacing the washer every oil change only make 2-3 washers each year. Most only change oil once each year.

No need to spend $20 for a fix when $0.10 will satisfy the need.

With the adapter you can put on a better filter hand have the advantage of a larger oil capacity that also aids in cooling. That's why I use them.
