Changing out the wiper motor in the 86 GT. The rebuilt replacement didn't come with the seal that goes under the crank arm and seals the hole in the firewall. When I removed it from the old motor there seems like there is some old grease in there. Not sure if it was intended as a lubrication grease or if it's meant to help seal the hole against moisture penetration around the spindle. Any ideas on what it's there for, if it is needed and what kind of grease it is? The service manual makes no mention of any grease there.
