When was the brass block with the bracket that attaches to the intake manifold used? Is there an early vs late difference? Thank you!

The fuel line support bracket was used on Holley equipped cars after June, 1969. Legends is leaning towards the fuel line block being painted silver

Thank you! The block is silver on pre-June cars as well? Thank you

Looks like that one might be from a 1970? The bracket on a 1969 is attached to the brass block itself.

I'm not sure why the supplier or GM would apply paint to a brass block.  Extra cost for what purpose?  The pic on the post above doesn't look like it's been painted.  I assume the Legends guys have unrestored examples that show the silver paint finish?

It does look like the right line. I donít see any evidence of sliver on that one.

The non attached blocks are blackened.
Not paint not coated it is a forced oxidation.
