The few ones I have seen were always needle -> spring -> metal washer -> rubber o-ring

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I agree with Shryp, only one o-ring.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

this is how mine is for some reason. maybe the previous owner put it like this by accident>??

i guess i ll only put one 0 ring, but its hard to tell from pics but one o ring is thicker than the other not sure which one to use.... the one on the right is thicker

The whole purpose of the metal washer it to stop the spring from digging into the rubber one and to evenly distribute the pressure.
