I used Ford gray on my engine and oil filter in my ‘46, Ford blue on the body of the oil filter, and Krylon Gloss Pumpkin Orange for the lid on a Buick I’m doing. The filter canisters look pretty close to the photos I have seen of original coloration. I also did a yellow and black canister for my ‘50, which I understand was correct for ‘49, but was evidently added to it, possibly a leftover from a dealership.

This is the Fram that was on the 1961 235 engine that I installed in my ‘46. I restored the gray AC for a closer to correct look under the hood. So now I don’t need the Fram or the breather.

I made the decision to paint my newly acquired 235 with a light shade of gray instead of dark. Problem has been actually finding the paint. I tried all of the usual big box stores, the local hardware stores and even shopped online and always came up empty handed. Yesterday I stopped in a Tractor Supply store and found what I’ve been looking for….. Light Ford gray. It’s the paint used on the old 8N tractors. I’m looking forward to trying it on the valve cover later this afternoon when it warms up. By the way, it’s on sale for only $4.99 until March 27. That’s about 30% off the regular $6.99/11 oz can price.

Has anyone tried Massey Ferguson gray? Looks to me like it’s kind of a medium gray. Darker than Ford.

JW51, I saw the Massey Ferguson gray paint at Tractor Supply yesterday but it was noticeably darker than the light Ford gray I chose. It’s not quite as dark as Rustoleum Smoke gray but not by much.

They were painted Detroit Diesel "Alpine Green" and one year in the late 50's they were Yellow.
