Question Faairbanks Morse Z D color?

I searched here for color info, but didn't see the D engine mentioned.

Will the "Dark Hunter Green" be about the correct color for this engine too?

There are some areas of paint on the engine, but since it was bare behind the flywheel on the crankcase, I suspect the light green I see was from a quickie rattle can job.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks, Bob

If it's like mine, I'd at least suggest you pull the crank cover and check the condition inside. Mine had lots of rust on the gear teeth that I wouldn't have wanted to have in there while running.

...has a picture of the insides when I pulled the cover.

Best of luck with it, Scooter Bob
