BBC oil filter adapter gasket

I've read conflicting reports regarding the use of a gasket between the block and oil filter adapter for chevy engines.

Would like some input and share what I have;

454 truck block 1974

I purchased a new adapter, GM # 19299222.
Part number cast into adapter, 3952302

As you can see in the pictures, this item included a gasket, the gasket is actually steel shim with gasket material pressed on each side.
I'm inlclined to use the gasket as it was included with the adapter, please tell me if this is wrong.

Re: BBC oil filter adapter gasket

I've never used or seen a gasket for the adapter. I'd leave it out of the equation,..just something that could fail.

Re: BBC oil filter adapter gasket

Never used a gasket in 24 years. I sell about 4000 oil filter adapters a year. No gaskets.
