The crush washer in front of the muzzle brake split clean thru at exactly the six o'clock position. Is this normal? What caused it? How do I keep it from happening again?

You've got something in front of the Muzzle Brake on your gun? If you are referring to the crush washer behind your muzzle brake, (AR15?)
I've had very tight Nylon washers split like that, before. Might it have been over-torqued? Firing the gun on a over-pressured washer could do that,
but AFAIK it probably is mind over matter, if you don't mind, it don't matter.

OK. I wanted to make sure it would not effect anything. I had to torque the brake that much to get it clocked properly

I've been an armored for 20 years and have never had that happen. I suggest you get that checked out pronto by a professional.
