Q: Engine Painting
I have a 1968 Pontiac 350 engine that needs repainting. How was this engine originally painted. Was all of the engine painted Pontiac Blue or just certain parts and were there any other colors involved. Any info appreciated.
A: The block, heads, balancer, water pump, timing cover, intake manifold, oil filter bracket, and tin (except chrome of course) are painted blue. Black goes on pulleys, power steering pump, accessory brackets, motor mounts, heater hose bracket and coil mount bracket. Hope I did’nt forget anything.
A: When using this engine paint be SURE you use engine temperature primer first. It is made for very high temperatures. If you don’t use it first you can be sure your engine paint will peel off in sheets after you’ve run the engine a while. Any automotive store that sells the correct PMD engine paint should carry the primer too.
