from what I have read, 60 and 61 bendix brakes used a squared O ring to make a seal at this spot. Good news too, I found the part #
B8S-2493-A. My brake booster is not a clamp around type but rather screw type. Meaning screws are used to keep the two halves of the booster together. Not sure of other differences. If you would like, check out the link below. Its a bit of interesting information, I thought.

As mentioned in the thread the seal really doesn't do much. It's more to keep moisture out of the booster than it is to keep vacuum from leaking out. There are various seals and valves inside the booster that hold the vacuum and keep it from reaching the outer case. If you have a shop manual it will have an exploded view of all the parts. It sounds like you have a Bendix booster, not a Midland booster that used the screw clamp.

last update. Newly rebuilt brake booster and new dual M/C with proportioning valve installed in car. Brakes plead and all seems fine. Test drive went great.

Glad to hear that it worked out. I think we all suspected that it was a booster issue from the start. You sent it to the right place to be rebuilt.
