Is this an original part--i.e. it came out of this block--or 
aftermarket? If it's a new part maybe try a different vendor.

I'm not crazy about stacking washers to make a nonconforming part work, 
but at least you don't have to look at this every day. But, you now have 
to have to have two washers seal to each other in addition to sealing to 
the block and the 'union.'
