Unfortunately, chances are when you remove the colored paint, you will also lose the original B&S kettering as ell. You might try and soak the plate in gas but DO NOT RUB IT! The spurrious paimt may slough off, leaving the original, if you do not rub at it. your other option is to try and find a replacement from one of the small engine sponsors here on the stak.

The numbers are stamped in. Even if you lose all the paint and have a bare plate, you should still be able to see the numbers.
