Copper Washer after O-Ring replacement

I recently replaced all of my injector O-rings on my 1999 f-350. (Found that number 8 had bad O-rings) Anyways, I was cleaning up the shop today and looked in one of my bags the O-rings came in and found a copper crush washer. I found all of the O-rings I had pulled and I had 8 used ones, which means that I didn't install a copper crush washer on the end of the injector. What kind of effects will this have? I don't really want to have to pull all of my injectors again but I can if it is necessary. Please help. Thanks

wanna say, the injector will leak down..(oil), (let alone, wont "seat" correctly). into the cylinder or coolant will mix with fuel. Either way bud, you wanna install that washer.

I pulled all my injectors and It happened to be the fourth one I pulled was missing the copper washer. All seems to be right now. Thanks
