Water heater in pipe

Sun, the element I bought came with a rubber gasket, do I not use it?
If I follow your instructions right It is 1.25 by 1/16 thick washer directly to element and than 1.5 washer with 1.25 o ring to 1" bushing?

Correct since an o-ring is what fits those size washers (AKA bushings.)

Correct, from the CF thread here:
"Use a 1/16" thick by 1.25" ID metal washer first on the element, then a 1.5" ID washer with a 1/8" x 1.25" O-ring inside. The bigger washer acts like a retainer, preventing blowout. "
