Gold Seal twin cam engine >>"Interesting to see the correct BMC gold. I just rebuilt my engine and tried to match the few gold flakes that came off . They were under several interesting layers of paint one of which was green! I chose to get it back to the gold color. The head I decided to keep aluminum which I know is not original, but seemed to complement the whole engine. My Dad told me that when you got a complete goldseal replacement engine, everything was painted gold!"
