I am doing some minor maintance on my 1945 B. I hate to put stuff back together when I have an opportunity to repaint parts. Specifically, what is the original paint color for the generator, water pump,radiator fan, and air cleaner ?
They appeared to be painted orange orginally but I have seen some restored B"s on this site that had these parts painted black.
Also there is a number , appears to be a date on a small plate that is attached to the engine block near the generator. Looks like the manufacture date? 5 24 1945.
