      Thanks. The gray color is a ceramic heat transfer coating I put on it. I've also sprayed the radiator with it, and the car runs 15 degrees cooler (water temp) now. It's made for any heat exchanger, tranfer case or tranny case, rear end housings too. I'm trying to see if it'll help get some of the heat out of the motor. We'll find out on the run.

      And yup, it's the factory motor out of my 76.
