Anyone using front disk brakes by "Right Stuff" ?

I installed their front disk brake conversion kit on my 67. So far so good. My question is they didnt give me a gasket or O-ring to slip on the M/C before I mount it to the brake booster. I called them and they said it doesnt need one. The M/C has a groove for one and after all I have read about forgetting the O-ring and not having good brakes bothers me. Anyone using their setup without the O-rig? Do you think I should put one on there incase? My cars in the assembly stage after paint and if I can prevent having to take everything apart once its in that would be great. Any opinions welcome. If suggested I do put a felt gasket or O-ring on for secirity, where do I get one if not from the company that sold me the conversion?

Thanks

Gary

There is nothing to seal between those 2 parts. I mean you can seal it but there is no pressure there.

I recall there being an o-ring on the rod that fits into the MC, simply to make the rod fit tight and square. Like Tim said, the seals to keep the fluid in the MC are internal to the MC.

Ok thanks...I thought I have read alot of posts for a gasket or oring but maybe I was mistaken. Thanks for the reply guys...

I just re read the posts. It seems the O-ring was on the plunger rod. Thanks

Gary - I used it. Good kit. Good company to work with.

I took it off when I upgraded to the wilwood kit. Do you need anything?

Thanks doug..I think I'm good. I have all new brakes and suspension. It all looks good on the car in the garage. If it works as well as it looks and installed, I'll be happy! If I need anything I'll call ya.
