fuse block to firewall seal?

Hey guys,

I am in the process of putting my YJ back together after a lengthy frame off restomod and was cleaning the connection at the fuse block today.

the section of the block that handles the chassis electrical for the front end was pretty dirty from being stored in the shed with the sticky grease exposed.

I was spraying both sides of the block with some electrical contact cleaner to get rid of any contamination/corrosion and prepare the block for some new dielectric grease.

when I finished the cleaning/greasing I reconnected the battery, opened the door so I could check the function of the lights, and that's when I noticed a puddle of the electrical cleaner on the drivers side floorboard!

Luckily, I have Herculined floors or it would have been a real mess.

is there supposed to be some type of stamped out seal between the block and firewall that I didn't reinstall? I don't remember removing anything when I disassembled it, but that was quite awhile ago.

tia

I looked in the parts book and FSM that I have and get nothing. So some RTV is in order to seal it up.

Here is the page from the parts book. No seal at all.

hmmm...that's interesting to know, now I'm wondering if when I was spraying the cleaner it was actually going through the block and not around it...maybe I'll try spraying it now that it's assembled and see if I get anything accumulating on the floorboards again

thanks
