Chute base ring/gasket

I'm sure there is a better term for it.
I was thinking about putting a thin plastic gasket at the base of my chute.
I seem to remember some other machine I've worked on the the past having something like this.

I was originally thinking about simply putting a very thin plastic ring with grease on both sides under the chute. but now I wondering if I should make two layers and lightly adhere them to the paint so that the layer of grease is between these two rings. Does that make any sense? Will it help any? It just seems silly to have only grease between two painted surfaces
To go here.

Disregard. I'm an idiot. I just realized both the chute and the bucket have a male flange. I already have a plastic coupler piece that goes in between them. Took it apart a couple years ago, and forgot about the plastic piece. I just looked in my box with the rest of the chute hardware. Hmmm big thick black plastic ring.Senior moment.

For those of us who don't have the plastic ring - interesting idea, thank you. Here is a great t-shirt for most of us on the forum.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Ha ha thanks Grunt.
The fact that I took it apart years ago is true, but isn't really the problem. It could have happened if it was a couple days ago. I've learned to take photos of things like carb linkage before I take it apart.

Hmm, my chute rattles a little. A plastic ring might be just the cure.
