Putting my engine back together after a CAM failure. The gasket package I bought has a gasket that fits between the aluminum oil filter adaptor and the block. I don't recall there being a gasket here before. Should this gasket be in place or can I eliminate it?

Eric,
The gasket in the kit is for the oil cooler adapter on the later model engines. It is not used on your 396.
