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.

Thanks,
Wayne

All were ORANGE except the muffler and rear rims. Rear rims were auctally not painted at all, as they came as galvinized from the factory. Everyone just paints them silver because galvinized rims are very expensive.

Opps, ok, the generator and the starter are not inculded in everything. There is always a big debate about that. They must have switched the color sometimes because I have seen original (prooven, never painted) B's with both colors. Some say they did not paint them when they came from the DELCO/REMY factory, others say they painted them. I just painted mine orange to stay away from buying a different color paint then I had too.

From the factory, the muffler and rear rims were not painted Persian Orange #1, but everything else was. Replacement lights, generator and starter came black. I have never seen a date plate such as you describe, that is interesting. No paint on the seat cushion.

Jerry, where did you come up with this info? If you could let me know great. I have seen them painted both ways and have never gotten a clear answer. I have pctures of the yard at west allis and see many AC B's in the picture but with black and white grey is grey. I am working on a book about the AC B and would like any info I can dig up. Thanks

This is the best I can remember as we took them off the rail car and brought them here to the dealership. Of course, I was 60 years younger then. AC will be featured at the American Threshermans in Pinckneyville, IL in August, I'll take this up with some of the old timers.

Today's Featured Article - The Fordson F Ignition System - by Anthony West. A fellow restorer contacted me earlier this year asking for some help and advice on a model F that he was restoring. He had over a period of months spent a fair amount of his hard earned cash on replacement parts for the old "trembler" ignition. Sadly though all his efforts seemed to be a waste of time and money as he still couldn''t get the temperamental old thing to run correctly!! If i said that this was a little frustrating for him that would be "conservative" in fact the problem had reduce ... [Read Article]
