Fwiw I would definately use it.You don,t need to pull everything back off to install it,just take your balancer back off and see if you can get it to slide past the seal.If it won,t just remove that ,slide the sucker in ,renew the seal and put the balancer back on.cheerio.

Sorry xdclevo, no way FORD put it there if it wasn't required. Old Henry just wouldn't allow it!
While it is a pita to pull everything off to fit the oil slinger, not fittting it will be way more work.
And yes;" I hate it when that happens!"
