View Full Version : Underhood Detailing

01-15-2007, 06:34 PM
I'm still working on the detailing on my 1963 R2 GT Hawk.
I have a question about the throttle bell crank (the large part of
the throttle linkage that is fastened to the engine with a head bolt).
Should this part be zinc plated or painted? If painted, what color?
Will I mess things up by removing a head bolt or can I just
retorque it when I reinstall the bell crank?
I really appreciate all the help that you members of this forum
have provided. Thanks again!!!:)

You can just paint it with Eastwood Detail gray and no need to do anything but retorque the bolt when you are done.
