Does anyone know what color a Sears & Roebuck rebuilt T engine was painted? I just finished restoring a T Conversion tractor and am now working on a doodlebug. Both had red-painted engines (one came from Massachusetts, the other from Pennsylvania - so there was no owner connection). In both cases, these were not quickie farmer brush jobs (the remnants of red paint in some areas indicate that both engines had been sprayed red when disassembled. I'm wondering if both were Sears rebuilds?

A Sears & Roebuck rebuilt Model A short block that I bought in the late '50's when I was a kid was painted a medium blue. In fact, in those days, much of Sears & Roebuck's automotive stuff was called "Allstate" and was painted basically that same blue, and some were blue with a bit of orange trim as I remember.

Montgomery Ward offered a rebuilt Model T power plant for less than $500 in the fifties and I think early sixties. Others may know what color these units were.

(Sorry not T but...)I had no idea Sears ever got involved with engine blocks until one day in college a buddy of mine bought a 1950 chevy pick up and cast right into the block on the side was "Sears".
