I wondered the same thing about the cast part on my starter. I decided since it was cast iron and not aluminum I needed to paint it. But it looked good bare.

Link to the thread.

Talk to south paw.  The link goes to the 61 62 technical threads.  If he does not list you in that group you cannot see them.

I have finally found a paint that look like metal for the front part of the starter,

and i have installed a new solenoid too (i know its not black, but i finally decided to let it on metal, so it dosent look too bad..)

I have found a delco-remy tag, i was not sure where to put it, so i have installed it as you see on the picture..

So it probably not look like the original but dosent look too bad  :)

Roger's observation on their composition is correct, but their allure is based on personal collecting preferences. Just as the decision to purchase a survivor car as opposed to owning a pristine frame off restoration or indeed even a resto-mod, can all represent extreme variations in condition and collector psychology. What motivates a person to collect can vary. Back in the day these models were made from a cellulose nitrate based plastic which had a tendency to deform with age and perhaps exposure to heat and light.

In the collecting world some things are known to simply not survive well. Rarely however, does that mean that such objects are NOT pursued by collectors. I would never have collected early pulp paperbacks if I had objected to browned, brittle acidified paper, but that is the way those particular objects have survived due to the material they were made of, for example. Sometimes defects ARE the allure to the collector, & sub-sets within the collecting world that recognize such develop. Good examples of this are found within the numismatics field. It comes down to why one chooses to collect. These are "real skookum" as the expression says, and they represent an odd, period GM licensed model of our cars, which in itself is very interesting to some. Clay/Lexi

Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Re: Vacuum pump booster at the oil pump :(

Jose, you must also block the open inlet from the vacuum manifold!

Thanks Roger..!

Iím planning on adding a vacuum hose from the firewall vacuum manifold over to the electric wiper motor, this will be closed in case someone notice it I would tell them the electric motor requires vacuum to operate.   :D

Yes, I know sneaky trick..!   ;D

The one extending to the vacuum assist pump will also be block off. I would need the others going to the washer since I still have the original setup.

Phil, I have some early promotional models. Don't buy them as the plastic from that time is not stable at all; the shape is disappointing.
