Gasket or not?

Was there any gasket between the blower motor and the box or did they use a seam sealant?

Re: Gasket or not?

Thanks BigIron,

But I beg to differ..There is nothing, as far as I understand, on 1A6 that says that there should be sealant between the electrical motor and the box. I can agree that there hould be .03 gallon of sealing compound between the box and the firewall- but not the motor. The number (9985059) you mention is nowhere to be found on that page.
Am I reading it wrong?

Thanks again

Re: Gasket or not?

Mis-read your post, the sealer I mentioned is for the case to the firewall. Never seen an original with a gasket or sealer between motor and case.
Go to AIM 0 D5 to find numbers for sealers.
Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks Bob,

Would it hurt to put a tiny bit of sealant between the motor and the case? Just to keep dust and vapors out..? Will check the page you suggested.
Thnk again

I've always seen blower motors installed with a bead of strip caulk around them. I can't recall working on anything as old a first gen to be sure they used it on them but seems everything else I've worked on had it.

Why not, anything you can do to help the case from leaking will only help first gen. heating and air.
