Originality / Re: Z-Bar / Clutch Bellcrank Plug
« on: Today at 06:01:22 AM »
I dug out my bar and cleaned up the plug with a little isopropyl, funny the bar has that same phosphate line as the one pic above. The plug has a weird red or orange faded color that is hard to tell.

This might be a dumb question, are the bars tapped for a Zerk under the plug? & Would the service dept just inject a bunch of grease every 30k miles to supply lube to both pivots, I was digging out really waxy gunk that was basically solidified in the hollow bore, I thought I might heat the plug with a hair dryer to make it a little more flex and pop it out a soak the bar in a solvent tank, then re-phosphate the bar and preserve with Boe-Shield T9.

We use these on Navy Ships (Submarine & Carrier) components as FME enclosures (Foreign Material Exclusion).
CAPLUGS has been in business for decades

I did not see the smaller sizes listed but I bet they make them.

I will post my Z bar plug after I clean up he unit.

You could liquidate one to Support the other.
Around Here the desire tends toward originality, so with these higher option cars it make sense to lean that direction. As always it depends on your end needs -vs- wants.
But my short answer is Restore them Both!

and one by the horn relay if my memory serves.

Voltage regulator is where you are thinking. Correct area. Attached to tab on the back side of the VR. Probably to dampen the switching action of the relay inside the VR to min radio interference (RF).

The Gilmore will be restored to its orig configuration.
C-2 (Ermine White w/ Black V top)

Take a Million photos as you go to document the as found items.

Some RED, I was surprised how well it has been cleaning up, but I am really going to re-dye a lot (at least that is the plan) cause I would prefer original parts w/ cosmetic restoration -vs- perfect reproduction parts.

keep posting
