Are you absolutely sure they aren't still on the head? I've had a few
stick on there and if there's still much oil on there it can be hard
to tell if it's just oil or if there's a washer unless you really look
Sorry if you've already done a decent job of looking. I've overlooked
that once or twice and kicked myself hours later when I found them
sitting right where they had always been - stuck very firmly on the
head right where they go.....
