Does one have to use moly or loctite when screwing on an FH during installation?  2nd, does anyone have a pic of a crush  washer?  I picked up one at a gunshow and I'm not sure if it's a crush or peel washer.  thanks!

Crush is on the right.  I did't used loctite on my A2 with peel washer, and haven't had any problems.

Thanks Mark!  I indeed picked up a crush washer.  I plan on using it with an a2 FH.  Any tips?

I haven't done one yet, but apparently you just tighten the FH until the washer starts to compress.  Stop tightening when you are indexed.  I'm guessing you wouldn't have more than a full turn after the washer starts to crush.

This may sound like a dumb question, but does the wider beveled side of the washer face the FH?

It's not a dumb question at all.  I don't remember.  Lotboy has a Colt upper with the crush on it, and I can't remember which way it goes.  I think people here have done it both ways.

Someone here will be able to tell you.  I think the wide part touches the FH.

correct. also, I use blue loctite since it's temporary, but you don't neccessarily have to use it.
