Wheel Hub Oil Seal Snap Ring & Helitool Disk Brake Quest

I am reassembling the wheel hubs after a Helitool disk brake conversion and have a few questions that I need guidance with. I have attached a link with reference photos.

1. I am looking for a spec and source for the Oil Seal Snap Ring #22-06-24?

2. What is the function of the outer groove on the hub? I think it worked in concert with the oil slinger #22-04-17 (front)that is integral(?) with the drum brake Support Assembly #5-13-1. Now that the brake support assembly is removed, do I need to take any actions to prevent leaked oil from slinging onto my rotor?

3. The Rear wheel schematic shows the oil slinger as part of the brake support assembly while the front axle hub shows it free from the assembly. I still have my original support assemblies and the slingers are firmly adhered to the supports. Maybe they are spot welded in place? My question - Should I remove them from the support and incorporate with the Helitool brake caliper bracket? In the Helitool Disk Brake Manual it makes no reference to them nor does it appear in the assembly photos.

Your advise and knowledge is greatly appreciated, as always.

Regards, David.
