That shiny 704z sure is pretty, but I'm afraid my buddies might laugh me off the beach if I showed up with something that fancy.

I read that you keep a coating of wax on it, but I am curious about the cover plate, mine is plastic, were some aluminum? Or did they just paint the cover plate?

Nick,

I think the early 704's had a metal sideplate, later changed to plastic.

Sorry, I messed up and lied.  The 704 has a slip-in pin but the schematic on a 704Z does not show a pin.... as though it were a permanent post.  The 710Z through 716Z have a screw like what Keith describes.

I wouldn't go that far Smiley.

But yea, the 704/6z have a molded post on the ones I have seen (but have been wrong before). Smiley
