    Without AC the drain is not needed.

    what i need it for is the hole on the ac delete box is bigger than the lower heater core tube , i want it to cover the heater core tube and prevent water and debris from going in there and laying against the firewall

    I have used that foam insulation for pipe. Slide it on the tubes after cutting it to a length that will hold it tight against the housing.
