Default Correct pulley color and power steering pump paint color 1970-1973 T/A

For 1970-1973 F-body:

What is the accepted correct shade of black on the water pump, crank, power steering pulleys -- and the power steering pump itself for these cars?

Thank you!

Cant comment on concours resto or 100% original paint... but Ive always used a satin black, its not too flat & not too glossy & looks very close to original mid to later 2nd gen years. Many different brands to choose but for a easy to find locally paint, Ive always had goood luck with krylon satin black, goes on very smooth, dries fast & has held up for 10-15 years on my cars for brackets & pulleys. The block or heads should use a higher heat engine paint but those types usually have a satin black too.
