Hi Bruce, I was checking parts available at one of the links on this site.
They have a cowl gasket that looks like the one used on our Healeys. Length may be different though.

It's worth checking out.

I know that there are kits that allow you to custom make o-rings using Super Glue to connect the ends and they seem to hold up fairly well.  It should be possible to glue 2 sections of cowl seal together.  If a supplier can't be located for a custom length, gluing may be the only option.

I will be needing to replace my seal during reassembly, so I'm interested in a solution.  I located a supplier of Manx dune buggy seals on EBAY, but haven't bought anything yet. They are advertised as 44".

You may want to take a company called "Steele Rubber Products".
