Original Engine Colors - New Updated List Posted

 

In the Nov/Dec 2012 Newsletter, I included an updated list of original engine part colors that I had put together from my experience over the years and reorganized into a table format.

I have saved as a PDF file and uploaded to our website which you can now access, save and print by clicking on this link: Original Engine Colors

Hopefully this will help some of you in your restoration of your 390 & 429 engines.

Jason.

Regarding my ongoing oil leak, is 3000 to far out of round on my crank for the rear main seal to seal it? Thank you for your reply.

thanks for the confirmation jason, I appreciate it.

From the seen top side they are black. Most brackets and such that are painted black are usually a semi to gloss black.

Yep thats the one i mean...

Thanks Paul,  I appreciate the nice words. As they say that engine was a labor of love last year ... and glad to put my experience taking down 39 of these cars to good use.

On the AC bracket is that the bracket on top of the radiator support from dehydrator to the AC Compressor?

I get jealous every time I look at the picture above :) Question - what colour was the bracket at the front of the engine bay that holds the ac discharge hose to the frame? Black or was it zinc or gold cad???

No, same air cleaner housing for both Carter AFB adn Rochester 4GC. This is sitting on top of an Edelbrock 1411 so had to use adaptor rings to fit the original air cleaner housing to it.

What is different are the 63 & 64 Air Cleaner housings. The 63 has a more pointed, narrow air inlet snorkel while the 64 has the wider straight snorkel like in my picture above.

That is one beautifully done engine Jason. Was curious if the air cleaner is a Carter or Rochester type? I seem to remember they had 2 types of air cleaners,correct? Seems like it was something with the color of the decals too...I have a couple like yours in my parts stash and was just wondering.Thanks, Bill

Thanks a lot!  It's a big help!

I went back and added the Rustoleum Engine Paint part #'s. I will be posting my Engine Painting Tips from the newsletter in a separate post later and will include some of the additional information above.  I also tweaked the Original Engien Colors PDF document to include info on sheen, what this list covers, etc.

My right rear door courtesy light has two wires- a solid red and a black w/ white stripe. What puzzles me is that both wires have voltage across them when the key is turned to the left or right. To…Continue

Radiator And Shrouds

Posted by Dominic Salemi on April 24, 2019 at 3:36pm 1 Comment

Hello

Anyone have a decent radiator and shrouds and hardware for a 1964 Cadillac deville. I have an alum. radiator and I'm deciding on to fix it or back to the original one. If I fix it I won't need parts.

Thanks

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…
