Mine had no evidence of a pad, also none listed in the parts manual. But, there was an undercoating type material above the engine on the outside of the fire wall where the body is recessed to accept the engine. This looked to be original.

Had a number of GPs over the years. Never saw a firewall pad in any of them.
