Swivel pin housing Oil seal Plate

My 110 front axle has 2 plates and a with a gasket(Joint Washer) between them that hold the Oil seal in the back of the swivel pin housing.
My question is do you need all three parts? the 110 manual 1987+ only shows 2 of them, 1 plate and 1 gasket(Joint Washer)

Thanks

Parts 12 and 13 in on the Diagram

On the earlier 110 swivel housings there is a wider opening at the top for the extended Railko bushing and swive pin.
Because of this bigger opening at the top it is desirable to have two plates in place to hold in the seal because it would be stronger and hold the upper part of the seal in place better and helping to prevent leaks.

Saved me again,
Thanks Keith
Where goes the gasket go? On one side it was between the plates, and on the other it was against the swivel pin housing?

I still haven't figured out if it goes:

seal-metal-metal
or
metal-seal-metal

One wheel was one way, the other wheel was the other?

I see no reference in any manual to two plates. I call BS.

Me either, that's why the question, but I took 4 early model swivel housings apart, and they all had 2 plates per side.

I guess I should just leave one off.

I like the extra plate to add strength holding in the seal on the ball. From the inside out. plate, plate, gasket.

Early 110 housings did not go full circle, it's more of a keyhole shape, adding the extra plate should help support the seal better at the "open" part of the swivel housing and keep the leaks away longer.
