motor color

Recommended Posts



that was one of the pics I looked at. the s/g is black but the engine appears to be yellow.

the 1961 B-1 I have has a black motor but the intake/carb and the s/g were yellow. the parts model 19 B&S that I am rebuilding was yellow.

the motor from the parts 725 has a yellow base plate and cooling shroud but the rest is all orange. wonder what i'll find inside that when I tear it down next week!

Oh Yeah! What wasn't rusty on the engine, was that "Milwaukee Yeller"!

I'm pretty sure the points cover (now belonging to a HS Chemistry Teacher in upstate NY)was also yellow.Parts of this critter have found their way all over the country.

Have a GR8 Holiday All, though it looks like we will all have rain on Monday!XX(

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
