Oil Pressure Sender Gasket

I am rebuilding my engine and I forgot to order the copper crush gaskets for the oil pressure sender. I found some at my local hardware store, but they are thinner. ID and OD match. Will these work?

I have them pictured next to the old ones.

You should be fine with that. I reused mine a few times before replacing the sending unit.

I don't think the crush is so important on that piece, as long as it has one on it, old or not.

should be ok, just need the soft copper to crush a little to give a good conformance to both surfaces

This is what I was thinking, but I wanted to be sure.
