I am re-installing my wiper motor after painting my firewall of my 66 SS. I noticed that there is some type of gasket or sealer that goes between the wiper motor and the firewall. Does anyone know what specific type or brand of sealer I need to use to replace the motor?? thanks

Rusty, when you say rubber bead, is that some sort of sealer?. The old gasket looks like some sort of asbestos or tar based sealer. thanks for your input.

This gasket only serves to keep water from running from the cowl to the engine compartment. I.m.o. it is not that critical.
I have used a foam like rubber you can buy by the yard. The cross section is O-shaped. I have made a circle and glued the ends together. It looks like a big o-ring. I could make a picture of the material if you wish.

I bought mine from Ground Up. Wiper motor seal - part #AWS-6. They also have the wiper motor mounting kits. These are the 3 steel sleeved rubber mounts that connect the motor to the fire wall.
