    Happy holiday to everyone
    It's been awhile since I was on the forum, but I'm still out here. I am assembling my car. It's nice to put back together rather than take apart! Question: The book shows the brake backing plate goes directly on the axle flange--no gasket there---is this correct? I would have thought a gasket would go there, but my manuals say no. I'm talking about the left side in this instance. On the right side the shims go on before the backing plate, to get the axle end play correct. But i would have thought a gasket would go on before the backing plate as well.
    It's been awhile since I took this apart--I just want to make sure I'm not missing something here. Thanks----Regards----Dan

    No gasket...



    1002-41 = oil seal (inner seal)
    1002-15 = shim(s)
    1102-24 = backing plate reinforcing plate
    1002-29 = felt washer (outer seal) that fits in the 1002-24 retainer
    1002-31 = gasket
    1002-24 = outer seal retainer

        There are no gaskets between the backing plate and the axle flange. I always put some wheel bearing grease on the mating surfaces. Hopefully, the grease will keep dirt and water out of the bearings. The axle end play adjustment shims go between the right side backing plate and flange. Be sure that you have the axle end play set correctly before you put the drums on. Bud
