I have a 1111054 distributor for my 64 gto and it appears to be original to the car. It has the aluminum tab around the shaft. But that aluminum tab is painted.

I dont know if these were actually supposed to be painted or not. The distributor is cast iron so I can't imagine it being left bare. Does anyone here know if they were painted when they left the factory or was this someone after the fact that slapped some paint on it?

If it is not supposed to be painted does anyone know what I can use to clean the paint of of the aluminum ring? I am afraid to bend the tab to get the ring off because it might break off. It is slightly thicker than a soda can. I am not even sure how I am going to clean it because it is chipped and will need to have the paint removed to repaint it.

I could really use the advice
