1997 Town Car: I removed the oil pan plug and the metal washer has a rubber centre that is torn. The Lincoln dealer sold me a new rubber o-ring. Can I reinstall the plug only using the o-ring ? The original washer’s surface is broken & uneven.

I would say yes, on my '04 I have used alternatively, a rubber O-ring by itself, or a plastic or nylon crush washer. Just make sure it is the correct size, you only install 1, and if you use a crush washer you need to use a new one each time you change the oil/remove the oil pan plug

Thank you for your reply.
