When I blast an engine pan I know I'll see where they sprayed hot brass on it to seal the seams. But I never thought about other places where the same thing was done. Here are a couple I found this morning.






I don't know what they were sealing here.

Not for sealing, holds it together. I see cracks on your steering base. Better fix it. Dan

Steve-
You should see some residual brass plating on the steering quadrant, too.

Dan, yes, I intend to. I expect a lot of steering columns without support braces are cracked there.

Keith, yes, I should. But I don't. I have a couple of these small-tube steering columns, and I don't detect a trace of brass anywhere on the quadrants or the levers.

It must work, the steering column may be the only thing that doesn't leak on some cars.

Interesting. :-)
One more that I've found.
