Looking to see photos of members' engines from various angles with correct factory colors, either original or restored:

1. 216 from '48
2. 235 from '55

Thank you.

You've probably already seen this info. These are the B&W pics and documentation that I am using to paint the engine in my '54. Ordered the paint from the Filling Station today. Gonna try to paint the engine while it's in the truck.

"Features" doc and pic from Tim Lederman's site

Filling Station Dark Grey Engine Paint

Can someone point me toward the post where I got this pic?
Engine Plant Pic

The Assembly Manual for your trucks will show the correct location of the valve cover decal.

Suggest you peruse the albums of some of the frequent "pickey" Stovebolt posters. Some of them are pretty near factory specs.

There have been a gazillion posts on engine paint. The general consensus is that everything was painted the same color at once, except the bolt-on items: fan, gen and bracket, starter, distrib, coil, fuel pump, carb, lines, road draft tube, etc. Those items, if painted, are gloss or semi-gloss black.

Photos that I have shared on Stovebolt via PhotoBucket are no longer available. Please contact me if you want a photo from an old post.
