Sorry to get into this so late, but my browser times out before any more than two or three large photos open.

Sounds like a job for a very thin washer of PEEK!
I would often cut a shoulder into the spacer to take up endplay against the MDG, and it would capture a sealwasher quite well.

But oil can still run through the MDG bushing (until '65).
