NOPE - best way is to use the new crush gasket and a mechanical locking device if the thread in the jug are slightly worn. If the threads are severely worn then you need to score a oversize nut. https://www.treatland.tv/motobecane-replacement-OVERSIZE-exhaust-nut-32-5-p/mbk-stock-exhaust-nut-oversize.htm. The 0,5mm larger nut is same pitch as original nut, so it will self tap into the cylinder. Basically you need to thread the oversize nut into the cylinder without the pipe or gasket first to recut the thread. Then take it out and install the nut to the pipe throw in your new crush gasket and install the pipe. The additional locking device(s) are always a goodly idea anyhow.
