I re-plated the cover on my water valve (Zinc) & thought I would post a couple pictures. Now if I can get it back together without scratching it up.

Mark,Steve & Big Iron, I pulled out the subframe, check the bolt holes for air shield they are all 5/16" X 18 in the sub frame & cross member.
Cleaned out the power coating with the tap I guess.

Marty,Great picture. I am thinking that is the correct plating on the valve. Nice looking engine compartment and original ac hose.
Thanks

Hans, I didn't find any marks on the front of my diff. But I did find an orange spot on the back next to the cover and purple paint inside the yoke under all the grease. I think maybe to verify pinion nut torque.?? Check those areas also.

I am restoring a 69 396 AC car built in Nor. Nov 68. The water control valve # 3940250 on my car I believe is original. Riveted to the skirt. Has the extra stud next to the vacuum port. It is stamped with "Ranco" as the manufacturer & "Type H 25". I took it apart to replate it Gold like the repo I bought but inside it looks Silver Zinc.
I can't remember seeing a silver valve, same part was used on Corvette, and haven't found anyone who confirms it should be silver. Found a picture in my archive of a Yellow 69 with what appears to be original valve in silver. I don't know where I got that picture.
Does anyone have a car with an original valve that could verify the plating color?

Marty I am really impressed with the progress & the information gathered here in just 15 days. I like the going forward format you put together and the reference to AMK fasteners catalog. Good input from everybody. I want to thank Chick & others on the Palmetto tip. I cooked up some nuts & bolts in a $14 crock pot and the finish came out better than I thought. Quite easy also. I will continue to help with any other fasteners I come across.

Marty, I looked at the screw with the circles again with an eye loop. I can see no mark in the center but there are 7-8 circles and more faint towards the center.
I have the 2 bolts from the steering arms to the spindle and the large top spindle bolt to post.

I checked the small sheet metal screws this morning & I gave two photos #6 & #7 the wrong descriptions. I can't replace those photos but Marty maybe you can?
Sorry for the misinformation. Revised photos attached. George.

I blasted some sheet metal screws and took pictures today. The screw ( 9420415 ) Dave69x33 posted I found 3 variations of it. D, RBW,& Blank. The smaller sheet metal screws I may not be 100% correct on the diameter.

Marty, I can not figure out where the "LF" bolt came from in reply #46. It looks like a battery hold down bolt but it is 3/8" not typical 5/16". One of my front fenders was replaced at some point, so maybe this 3/8" bolt got replaced at that time. I blasted some more fasteners today and will post those pictures for your collection.
I like the charts you made up, great information.
George.
