Firewall Grommets / Seals

Recommended Posts

All of the firewall rubber grommets are rotted and cracked on my 620.  Has anyone found a trusted source for good grommets for your trucks?  Does the 620 share the same size grommets as the Z cars?

 

Wiper

Acc Cable

Speedo Cable

Harness

Steering Column

 

Thanks!

unfortunately from what i gather the harness grommet only comes with the harness. It is also my desite to change it. The other grommets I ordered on various websites: rockauto, amazon, parts train.

I just found one of the steering wheel grommets online last week...I just can't find that site again. It was pricey, though.

Seriously.  Looks like someone remanufactured them. Course I was looking for oem stuff.

Good to know

I use a lot of these grommets and firewall boots in my engine swaps, and I have still yet to find a good source. I have compiled a list of suppliers I use, but some of the boots are actual crap. The universal firewall boot from Daystar is good for most old car applications (with small connectors), but they are not cheap.

 

Here's my list.

I see the steering column rubber seal on ebay from time to time.

 

620 Steering Column Rubber Seal

 

OK Charlie, I just want to be clear about this ebay seller, yes it is safe as far as I know to buy an existing product from this ebay seller as long as the product already exists as I have bought 520/521 wingwindow gaskets from him myself, my friend in Australia that lives near him got screwed by this guy, but he also says the guy has some of the best reproduction rubber parts made out there, what I want to be clear on is I want everyone to know that even though this guy comes up with some great rubber products, he needs to pay for the tooling himself, do not give this guy/ebay seller any money for tooling to have any other products made like 320 wingwindow gaskets, you will likely get screwed big time if you do.

I know this guy/ebay seller knows people in Asia that will make any rubber products you want, but they want someone else to pay for the tooling, then after they make fill the order, they will make more of them with the tooling you paid for, and sell them out the back door to others.

Just an ebay listing I came across.  I believe the part is produced and available for sale.

Thank you Wayno for helping to keep ratsun people from getting ripped off.

It's alright to buy from that guy if the parts exist already, I just don't want anyone thinking if he had made that part, maybe he could have this part made also if I ask him.

My friend got ripped off by that guy, but the guy he bought the car from is the one that gave the parts to that guy, I guess he is a smooth talker, he talked the guy out of his parts saying he would get them back after they copied them, but once the Asian guys got them they never returned them, but that rotary Products guy made money selling copies of them parts, but my friend never got a set of them copies either, they were worth over $5000.00 over there in Australia.

Every time I see that guy selling new parts I wonder who got ripped off as he is likely buying them thru the back door from them Asian guys after someone else paid for the molds, that someone else is the one that got ripped off that time.

But if them guys were not ripping people off all over the world we would likely not have all these reproduced parts we have now, I just don't want anyone I know being ripped off.

Purchased a steering column boot from the eBay supplier.  When it arrived, I discovered it was the wrong boot.  It's directly opposite of what's needed and appears to be molded RHD, not LHD.  I should have noticed in the posted pictures...  but...

 

So, I'm back to square one.  

 

Has anyone found a working solution to seal the steering column at the firewall on a LHD 620?

Any chance its inside out?

Not even sure if that's possible just popped into my head.....

 

On my 521 I actually just made one for the steering column out of some thick rubber..... the 521 has a trim piece that holds it in place..... 

Sometimes you have to get creative... I actually am using some small block Chevy valve cover breather grommets to run wires through a couple of my fire wall holes....

Try what Crashtd420 suggested, reverse the seal and see if it will work and let us know.

If it is not reversible then why is a guy from Australia advertising right hand drive parts in a left hand drive country ebay, I do not believe he is stupid as he has been doing this for a while(making rubber parts).
