    That was written by the sales department.

    bronze for sure
    brass is soft as shit

    these two are often mixed by laics

    linkerts and scheblers were cast from sth like
    c83600 alloy
    reddish in colour
    well castable
    good to machine
    great corrosion resistance
    good to work in higher temps (about 440F)

    we call it 555 as it has about 5% of each - Pb,Sn,Zn
    I did chromatography looong time ago and this was
    closest we could find

    best

    Well apparently the MoCo is involved in a massive cover up calling them brass when they are really bronze. Shenanigans!

    I apologize, that was taken from H-D service and military literature I read 30 years ago, since corrected.
