oil slinger

I hope I hear the answer I want. I have pulled my 258ci for a little freshing up. After repalcing the RMS, timing chain and gears, various other things with all new seals and gaskets. I have it all together ready to put it back in its place, when I noticed the oil slinger on the bench My question is do I really need to tear this thing down again and put the slinger on or can I carry on without the oil slinger?
thanks.

Although you may be able to "get away without it", it does serve a purpose.

I know, not the answer you wanted to hear.....

FWIW, 4.0s in later model years didn't have the slinger. I guess you could try running it without it.

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

If your seal and seal surface are good you wont have any problem.

That's the answer I was looking for. It's going back in the way it is. I know if I jack with it now that oil pan will leak for sure.
