Not sure if this is the right place to put it, and not seen to much help googling it, but is there a reaction between brass and zinc plated steel? Situation in question is; Brass pan head screws and zinc plated steel nuts. Cheers

Depends on the environment. High humidity or condensation will always speed up the galvanic corrosion process.
