As I am doing my rear brakes I noticed the parts book indicates a gasket #1183 is to be installed. The gasket is a ".062 I.D -98 O.D ... 12" thick.

 

I looked into Boos Herrel Catalog and is calls for a Fiber Washer/Gasket .Does it have to be made of Fiber.?

That is a seal for the wheel bearing grease. It should be made of fiber. The part is the same for all 32-48 Ford, Lincoln and Mercury.

 

I did not see the seal in their online catalog, but this outfit is in Canada and may have them.

Gerry, since they are compressible, they are not really re-usable, so you may want to pick up a couple extra ones in case a drum has to come off again. They start off 1/8" thick, but after torqued & compressed they almost look like a metal washer; your old one may still be in your hub that will need to be cleaned out. Cheers to you, making a lot of good progress on many items! Paul

The correct drum bearing grease is not modern. The right product is "StaLube Heavy Duty Drum Brake Bearing Grease" It is a very heavy fibrous grease,
