Looking for some help on this and I can't seem to find any info using the search feature. I am looking to change my compensator and the one I'm looking at is a used Rainier XTC that uses a crush washer. In the automotive field, crush washers are a one time deal...once they are crushed that's it. I assume it's the same when trying to time a compensator properly? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Correct, you'll need to replace it. You can pick up a shim set if you want instead for like $4.

There was a thread just a couple of weeks ago and a lot of people reuse the crush washer.  I do.

What do you mean "time it"?

I reuse my crush washers until they won't hold tension. Peel washers are the way to go though, if for no other reason than looks.
