Just curious... why not just replace the darn O-ring each and every time? WTF, it's only $1 or so.

I've got 80,000 miles on my Duece, fluids changed every 2,500 miles, and have never replaced an o-ring. As long as they are not damaged (cut, torn, knicked, etc.) they will last practically for ever for drain plug applications. It's not like they're sealing some high pressure system.
