I asked the same question a while back....all I got was "why did you take the outer plate off?" I replaced it instead of re-using it...you really don't want to have to go back in just to replace a $12 gasket...do you?
If you took it apart to the point that you're looking at the paper gasket you should probably replace the gasket. I did. Thankfully the Ford dealer that's only 5 minutes away from me had it in stock. I always try to start un-familiar projects earler in the day to account for those unexpected parts runs.
Will do good sir, thanks for the offer. I'm still waiting on the stang VB from Dan. Then i'll figure out if that plate gets reused or not and if I even need to worry about this. I guess this is why I bought the service manual...
