yes, both have a crusher. if you don't see it on the bolt when you take it out, you'll find it stuck to the pan.

Use at least a new washer when reinstalling.

If you didn't get a new washer, use a 400-grit and sand it down ever so lightly. I've read don't do this more than twice to the washer.

yes, but more importantly, the washer needs a bolt through it.
