OK, I am in the process of painting and detailing my 1965 289 engine. I have a painting you know the bracket that is bolted to the intake manifold behind the carburetor on the driver's side? One end of the accelerator return spring is attached to the carburetor linkage, and the other end of the spring is attached to this bracket. This bracket also has the transmission kickdown rod attached to it. It has a rod going through the bracket that rotates the bracket when you give gas to the engine. WHAT COLOR SHOULD I PAINT THIS BRACKET? Is it bare metal, is it black like the engine, or is it some other color? PLEASE let me know if you don't know which part I'm talking about! Thanks for any information on this!

If you're looking for concours, I can't help you, but on mine I like to paint it the color of the intake so it 'disappears.'

That whould be natural metal, according to the MCA judging rules. Natural metal paint can be used to make it look new.
