Oil Pickup Tube - O-Rings?

Hey all. '50 model 2302 with a 327 here. Looking for confirmation on this - should there be o-rings where the tube connects to the oil pump and strainer? There's no mention of it in the parts book relative to group 5.1305, and some threads here on the pickup tube don't seem to mention them. However, it was mentioned in a couple social media sources, so I'm looking for that confirmation. I've got the pan down right now, so I figured this would be a good time to add them if they're needed. Thanks!

No o rings are present between the pickup tube strainer.

OK perfect. What about between the tube nut and where it connects to the oil pump?

If it's not called out in the parts book then no.

It's worth noting, I'm not sure if they even had O rings back then that would withstand 300 degree oil.

That's what I figured (about the lack of mention in the book). It seemed like the "nut" for the tube was some sort of flared fitting that would do the sealing. There's a gasket listed for the senior cars - maybe that's what they're referencing?

I can confirm no o-rings and I just removed and reinstalled one on my 1951 Henney-Packard’s 327 and have done many others before too. In this case screen was filled with petrified oil so needed to be uncrimped, disassembled, cleaned, then put back together. With any o-rings at the pivot it would not swing freely enough to do its job.

Alright, sounds good then. I was mainly concerned about the upper connection (pictured), but all makes sense. My strainer was pretty gummed up, too. Kicking myself for not taking it all apart when I last had it apart two years ago. Just didn't know any better at that point. Thanks, all!
