With the idle adjustment screw backed as far as it will go, my engine is still idling a tad high. I recently retimed and re adjusted points but no change. The car runs fine and doesn't seem short on...

Re: 31 pickup leaking steering box

Cornhead grease is likely what you are looking for. Read up on that.

Re: Cleaning an early aluminum intake

I've used oven clean and a plastic brush/toothbrush to brighten up and clean aluminum. I'd recommend a test spot.
