I have reused vanos plug washers, but I have a big assortment of crush washers...If I did it now, I would try to use a new washer.

On the rear main seal, the two large bolts at the bottom of the RMS carrier that thread horizontally toward front of engine need sealer...Any thread sealer (not loctite) will work. A little blue loctite on all other bolts is fine. You should also use thread sealer on flywheel bolts.

Oil pressure regulator o-ring...I would get a viton o-ring or re-use the one you had.

On cylinder head drain valve...A viton o-ring of the correct size would be nice here, but you can go a long time on a Buna o-ring as it did from the factory. A decent metric o-ring assortment should have one...If not, maybe the corner garage (mechanic) will help you with the correct o-ring.
