Have not looked in my 62-3 parts book but the part could be bought from a dealer and installed in a 62. A 1/2″ hole is drilled where the pilot hole is dimpled in the dash metal on the left side of the inside the edge of the glove box door. It then pops right in and shines through the window or hole in the glove box liner. They work great, I have them in both of my 62’s.
Yes, you are correct. The oil filler/breather cap should be black on a 1962, the 1963’s are red. Your PCValve is on the left valve cover. I have had the same problem with the exhaust pipes to and from the turbo unit. The aerosol, high temp, paint will not stick! I have only found the Eastwood high temp brush on paint to last. It has held up on my cars for years.
Your car and engine bay look really great!
The first style transmission cross member for manual transmission 3 speed and “maybe” early 4 speed transmissions was a solid, with no rubber side attachment brackets, cross member. The second style manual transmission that was used for 4-speeds and maybe 3-speeds, from that point of introduction on, had a single rubber mount on the ends of the cross member. The automatic transmission cross bar used two rubber mounts on both ends of the cross member. Pics of all three styles shown below.
