220d oil filter change ?

I have a 1970 220d . I bought a oil filter kit. It came with 3 washers. 2 small ones and a large copper crush washer that I have no idea were it goes. The small one goes on the oil pan drain plug, the other small one goes on the bottom of the bolt of the oil filter housing but we're does this large one go?

there are 2 possibilty for drain plug , a small one or a large one , also the drain plug at oil cooler [ dont mess with this ] , also early diesels had a drain plug on the oil filter canister . a warning , when you put the canister back in , make sure that the o ring , lip , is properly engaged in housing , or you will crunch the canister .use your hand to feel .

Ok but when I did my last oil change instantly turn black as soon as I turn the car on I figured because it mixed with the oil that was in the cooler is this normal

Dragunov,

Mine was changed twice directly before I picked it up. It was still black as coal.

I had the synthetic removed and regular diesel oil put in. The mechanic that worked on the car for most of its' life said no synthetic.
