I am rebuilding the brakes on a 69 Mustang Fastback (351W) as part of a restoration. There is a shield I cannot find in Ford's factory service manual. See the attached photo. It is attached to the (drum) brake base plate, with a fibrous "gasket" between the two. It looks like a dirt shield, but I cannot find it in the FSM. What is this part, and what can I use as to replace the "gasket"?
