Default oil splash thing on cam sprocket?

hey guys
i saw some videos of 302s with some type of splash thing bolted on the cam sprocket inside the timing cover. apparently it is to splash oil around inside the cover?
is this something that should be on my 95gt? its definitely not there now, but im wondering if it was removed at some point in the past and mistakenly not replaced or maybe not replaced on purpose.
and, if it should be there and its vital, well then i need to get one i suppose

My engine has over 290,000 miles, main bearings and rod bearing replaced once.

And never had that thing,I wouldn't concern myself with it.

It's a mechanical fuel pump drive. If you look at it bolted on it would be offset to move the pump arm. Don't know why Ford put it in there. Everyone I touch winds up in the trash. Don't need it for EFI.
