Properly speaking, ought usually to be followed by de / du / des

Of course, sometimes it will be being used as an instruction, in which case in EN we'd probably use a direct imperative "fit the..."

Where it is being used with the definite article, the writer was probably reading it in their head as 'mettre en place...'

m.e.p. de / du / des = fitting
m.e.p. le / la / les = fit

agree  David Goward: In sequence of operations, I'd use infinitive (as per your note @ 9 mins) => "Fit O-ring", etc.

  -> Thanks, David! Yes, I think the clue to the intended meaning is whether or not 'de' has been used.
