Avid Bleed kit missing pad spacers.... what can be used instead?

Hi

I'm new to bleeding Avid brakes and jut bought a kit at my lbs

I've read the manual and watched the tutorial on youtube

the problem is my kit does not have the pad spacers or bleed block

what can be used as an alternative ? or is this something that is sold separately ?

so after more research the brakes come with a bleed block but since my bike was purchased with juicy 7's I did not receive one

I read one post where a few people said just keep the wheel on.... is that OK ?
