I didn't know there were markings at all. Haven't seen any when I've restored my 73 shaft.
I did came up with my own twisted marking, lol Smile

Nice! Hard to get to see it in action though.

hehehe yeah, I just couldn't resist, instead of a simple unicolor, I thought about planes engines often having these on rotating parts.
If I ever manage to get it out my garage, I want to make some fun video. I guess I'll need to drive over the camera. Smile

btw: still not have located the other 5 missing lug nuts yet. I keep looking and don't forget you!

73 modified Grandé 351C. Almost done. 
71 429CJ. In progress

? I like it!

So, after quite a bit of work wet sanding with 600, I was finally able to reveal enough of the stripes to see the general color, although the whole thing needs refinished, so they will need to be repainted. From the transmission side, it looks like 3 large stripes (pink, red, and yellow), and then 2 smaller white stripes near the axle side. To get the actual color of each, I’m just going to have to estimate from pics on this site and others.

This is your colors, but it says it is for a 1971 351 Boss which I believe came with a 4spd

Thanks, rackerm. Interesting. I don’t have a Boss, but those look like the right colors.
