Wiring firewall connector

OK, the connector on my firewall has 1 side where it looks like grease was in there at one time, butit is dried up and brown. Burnt? The other side looks nice and clean. Dry.

The clean side goes to the horn relay. The unly side goes to the engine harness.

Any thoughts?

When you say side, do you mean left and right or the outside and the inside where it plugs?

I'm thinking left and right. If that's the case I would imagine at some point someone did what I just did and thats go into the plug to make repairs. The "burnt grease" you're referring to is what I believe to be some kind of sealant from the factory back in the day to keep out moisture and whatever else. I had it on both sides(left,right) of mine prior to working on it. I'm still not sure what it is, but I imagine I'll have to find something to put back on it. Looking at mine now I can see the spade connectors on the slots that I worked on. The ones untouched are covered by the stuff and not visible. Hope this helps, and if anyone can shed a little more light on the subject that would be great.

Thanks,
Larry

I went through the 69 AIM, and UPC 1 shows .2 oz of 9980664 sealer to be applied after masking the front (terminal area) of the fuse block. So that would have been to seal water out of the interior. The stuff in the harness ends was applied by the vendor to GM. Below is some discussion:
