Hi Kyle, Yes the O'rings are up in the rudder box. I just got in there with a toothbrush and ULP (gas). May need to get more serious if it is really caked up. Definitely wouldn't remove the rudder box/port unless replacing because of wear. Haven't heard of anyone else putting that flat nylon washer back in,but a mates 197 had one in it and it helps to take out any freeplay vertically that you may have. Have fun.
