Color code

On the briggs and stratton engine the code indicated the engine mfg date along with color code. Does anyone know the color code break down or how could I get it? Or are they all painted when installed on the tractors?

In the late fifties, I worked on one of the lawn mower engine lines and those engines were painted OEM colors, but there was never anything in the parts books that I can remember of of paint being available other then black. Replacement engines were either gray or gold, I think. Somewhere in the late eighties, Briggs broke away from black engines with more multi coloured ones of their own design began showing up and that is what it is today.One of my accessories catalog has paint available in two forms of black, one each of white, gray and red, this book being published in 1991. You might try browsing at the Briggs website to see if they have any. For quite a while Simplicity and A-C purchased black engines except for some yellow ones for A-C I believe.
