I am pretty sure those are unpainted or plated, natural cast finish.

Wanted Parts and Cars / Re: Small line between intake manifold and carb
« Last post by 6262 on Today at 12:53:30 PM »

I'm curious....why is a vacuum line running from the manifold into the choke spring housing?  The purpose of that tube is to deliver heat to the spring so it slowly expands during cold starts.

The tube is not connected to a vacuum source but to a heat channel. This heat is directed to the choke.

I might have a spare.  I'll check my parts when I get home.

Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Finish for 1957 brake master cylinder?
« Last post by CS1957 on Today at 08:17:52 AM »
I'm still trying to recover from the 'restoration nightmare' and continue replacing parts that were lost/sold/stolen.  I just purchased a new brake master cylinder for my 1957 Biarritz.  Anyone know what the original factory finish was on those?  Natural cast? satin black?  something different?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thx a lot, Carl

You probably should check with them before ordering that what they have fits.    This is a picture of the one I bought from them for mine.   As you can see mine has an AFB and the the Rochester choke is different than the Carter.
