I know where it goes, but I can't understand why it's there! What is it sealing in or out? Anyone? On my disc brake conversion kit the instructions don't say anything about it, but I know it's called for with the drum brakes.

From David's Posting's PDF File -

"The gaskets used on
the axle bearing cover keep
any brake dust from getting to
the axle bearing and damaging
the bearing or seal. This seal
does not retain rear end lube."

Thank you! I've always wondered what it was for!!
