I'm working on a 1951 170 C7412/51 13692302623/51

Can someone answer these questions?

1-What was the original engine color

2-What were the fasteners plated?

3-When installing the head with a new head gasket- should i use any gasket sealer? If so, what kind is best?

Thanks!

The original engine color was black, aluminum cylinder head and timing cover are not painted.

Most of the engine bolts have a black oxide finish.

The cylinder head gasket is pre-pressed and has metal bordering on all edges.  The maintenance manual does not call for sealants and none was evidenced when I pulled my cylinder head.  There is a specific cylinder head tightening sequence and torque requirement for the head bolts (see below).

John,

Can you rotate the link 180 degrees?
