1966 Mustang Front Disc Conversion: Spindle Gasket Question

I'm currently installing my SSBC Front disc brake conversion kit. While reading the instructions it mentions installing the rotor splash shield over the gasket "if there"...? When I removed my drums there was no gasket on there...

Is this a necessary item? If it was then you'd think SSBC would have included it with the kit. I've already installed the front rotors and torqued the bolts down, but if I need those gaskets I could always remove them before I go any further with installation...

That is a Error.

There is no gasket that is applied between the Rotor shield, and bracket. The Gasket pertains to the 68-73 Disc Brakes.

We are SSBC Dealers, and I will certainly relate this to Bob.

GOOD Job There by the way.

I was referring to a gasket between the face of the spindle and the back the bracket...

It appears there is one on the rear axle backing plate. I guess I'll order a set of those since I'm going to be doing rear discs as well...

i did a stock disc brake swap on my 68 and when i was cleaning up the original disc brake spindles there was gasket material that i had to pry off. so i made my own gasket with gasket material from NAPA

What i've done...
-New steering box and front end rebuild
-New interior
-Disc brakes and brake system rebuild
-Edelbrock 4V
-New Exhaust (neighbors love me in the a.m)
-And to many other things to mention

Only thing i can think of why a gasket there is more of to help the splash shield from rattling.

I believe Fords thoughts was to keep contaminates from entering the seal/bearing area.

If no gasket, the chances of dust, dirt, going between the shield, and the spindles would be greater.

Easy way to get new gaskets is to trace around the Triangle Dust shield on a piece of Gasket material, cut out, install.
