Steering Linkage - Tie Rod Sleeve - correct finish?
« on: January 25, 2012, 06:52:19 PM »
Regarding the steering linkage tie rod sleeves - what is the correct finish?  Natural or black painted?  I've seen both on restored cars and not sure.   Also - how about the two sleeve bolts - black phospate or cadmium/sliver zinc?

Thanks.  I forgot to do a search, but did go back many posts and didn't come across a discussion.  So net-net:  Tie Rod Sleeves are natural as are the clips;  the bolts are phosphate and oil; the lock nuts zinc/silver or natural.
