Plating Question for 61 Roaster

#1 Post by jed goniu » Tue Jun 07, 2016 1:08 pm

We are rebuilding the motor on a 61 Roadster. Can someone please confirm the original plating from the factory? Bright Zinc or Silver Cad?

This link provides a good discussion: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=26632&hilit=carb+linkage+finish And more discussion here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=39884&hilit=cad+plating&start=0 And this recent link shows redoing in Clear Cad 1 : viewtopic.php?f=4&t=41099&start=45 but from reading it sounds like from the factory was Clear Zinc. If good your plater should be able to tell you what original finish was.
