Heater Hoses/Firewall Problem

Hey everyone.I got a 1965 Impala SS and I am having a problem the the lower heater hose on the firewall.I started the car the other day and I noticed that the bottom hose was leaking.So I went to tighten the hose clamp on there and noticed that the part coming out of the firewall(That the hose connects to)was really loose.The stuff holding it on there was rotted out.How do I fix this?It looks like they just put a bunch of silicone around it to keep it sealed because the hole in the firewall is bigger than the the part the hose connects to.Is there something I can buy so it will fit properly or am I suppoed to just put silicone around it and stick it back in?Someone please help.Thanks,
