Find out the type of thread be it npt or bsp and buy a relevant lock nut off ebay/fitting shop and cut yourself a silicon washer and ur away. just did this on a few 1.25" elements and worked a treat.

Ok cool I have the lock nut off eBay and an o ring but it still leaks, so you reacon just use a silicone baking tray and cut one out of that?
