[ROVERNET - UK] HS6 parts question

I've just rebuilt a pair of HS6 carbs, and was in the process of
swapping them with those in my '70 3500s, and I noticed some
differences. The new pair I rebuilt is from my '71 3500s, and when I
removed them, they had insulators and deflectors, but no liners.
When I removed the carbs in the '70, they had different insulators,
with liners, but no deflectors. The insulators are notched for the
liners, whereas the insulators from the '71 are beveled for the
deflectors. The parts catalog I have shows all of the components in
Was there a change from '70 to '71? Should there be deflectors AND
liners, or did one replace the other?
Also, neither the manual or the rebuild kit mention using gasket
sealer. Should gasket sealer be used on either the float bowl gasket,
or the carb-to-manifold gaskets?
Thanks for any insight,
