When I took my solenoid boards out, there wasn't any oil leaking. The solenoids were in there super snug, so the seals were still doing their job.

Unfortunately, time and heat have taken their toll on the grommets that hold the solenoids to the PCB. I've searched the internets but none of the kits include these grommets. I've looked at pictures and can tell others have similarly beat up grommets, but no source.

I'm thinking if I can't find replacements, I'll line them up on a flat bench and put 4 small dabs of RTV on the dry side of the affected noids. Shouldn't be a problem since these guys aren't sealing against oil or load-bearing.

Anybody have a source?

Never seen a source listing these. You are right, they don't seal, just hold the solenoid into the board. RTV should work OK.

Only place I could think of getting them would be Dr. Vanos. He sells individual coils and replaces failed ones so he might have a few of these grommets. DrVanos.com
