Thank you, Tim, for the link. I ordered two steel shims and eight paper gaskets as well as two 4290 and two 4284. On my axles, just outboard of the bearing assembly, were cork rings, approximate OD 2.375 in., 0.5 in wide. I think the 4284 replace these. They are not depicted in my manual's exploded view, however.
I also ordered a carb rebuild kit, but that's a separate discussion.
