Should all these items be painted orange?

This is always doubtful. I"ve seen factory advertisements with the generator painted orange. And I"ve seen factory advertisements with the generator and starter painted black. Possibly they changed during model production. At any rate, I doubt that it makes a great deal of difference. I have done them in orange. I"ve also done them in black. Personally, I believe the tractors look a lot better with the starter, generator and coil painted black. The distributor has always been orange - don"t paint the distributor cap or plug wires.

The only thing that I do different than Hossman, is I clear coat the carburetor. I think that way it don't look as bad when it starts getting dirty. However, I did paint the carb. on my UC black and it still looks fine. Dave.

MR.Bobby, There is some of these items that were orange from the factory, you can see this in old photos of em comin off the assembly line. Most of them though are black that is what I paint mine whenever doin a restoration. I researched this alot a few years back and was told if any thing was orange that when rebuilt or replaced back then they were then black. By the way all these items look real good black against the allis orange on the sheetmetal and engine block. I hope this helped you some. Sincerely, Hoss
