Hi,

Probably an unusual request. I've got an old Moen liquid soap dispenser, Model 3910.

I need to reinstall it and the one part that I can't find is what I'd describe as a foam gasket or seal. The original disintegrated after 19 years. It goes between the Brass Escutcheon (see diagram) and the countertop so that when you tighten, it provides a better seal and won't damage the countertop.

Moen has not similar parts available and it isn't even on the parts list/diagram they sent me.

Can I skip this piece and directly attach? Or do you have a suggestion on what I could use in its' place?

I've searched for gaskets, foam or rubber washers, etc. I'm happy to get out the knife and trim something. I just can't locate this little part.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

As always, thank you.

Hi Terry. I hope all is well.

Given my skill set, can you think of anything ready made I could buy and cut?

Thanks.
