Original engine color for a 1908 EMF

Post by bk2721 » Tue Feb 12, 2013 11:27 am

I had to have some major work done to the engine of my 1908 EMF Double Rumble Roadster and as a result it has stripped all of the paint off of the jugs.
The paint color from an earlier restoration was a semi-gloss black.
I want to have them repainted however I have tried to determine the correct original color but I am not having much success in determining this. Pictures of other similar cars have engine colors ranging from a semi-gloss black to body colors including reds and greens which my guess is not correct. One person suggested they should be painted gray.
I'm hoping that EMF guru's can help me determine what color is correct.

Thanks in advance,

Brad Kline

You might try to contact John Daly
His web site is amazing. Jim
Please refrain from restoring the survivors
