I would like to repaint the needed engine
on my 1924 T all black touring . Was the black the only engine color ? Can i paint it blue?
Thats one place that the black really dont look good in my opinion and the blue really
shows the beauty of the engine . Thanks for the help !
Much as I can tell, they were black until 26/27 when they went to "that green" color.
Black is correct. I use satin black Rustoleum.
But it's your car. You can do whatever you want. Here's how Martin Vowell painted his engine.
Thanks ! And Steve i will pass the purple!!
lol I would like to see some green pictures .
Here's my French Whorehouse version, but it's a 26/27. I'd probably paint it the green even if it wasn't to show off the accents. My WWII jeep has the Ford Tractor Grey paint scheme, and that looks nice also, but l shows off every oil leak.
It's your engine, make it your own.
Here's the 1927 green on a museum cutaway.
Rustoleum Satin Black, just like Steve Jelf says. Two spray cans will do the whole job.
WOW That will be good for engine ? HOT TEMPS ? I was thinking about bill hirsch but $39.00 . Can i do it with a brush ? im affraid of spraying all over .
The engine doesn't get THAT hot, Rustoleum will be fine. Yes, you can use a brush, that's how Ford did it.
I had good results with P.O.R.15 engine paint on my Imperial. Does anyone know if they make a Ford Green paint for 26/27's. You can paint it with a brush and the viscosity is so thin that you won't see the brush marks.

ANY SPECIAL TIPS ON HOW TO CLEAN ? ENGINE ON CAR . SOLVENT , ACETONE LAST , SOME WIRE BRUSHING ETC
You won't believe the nooks and crannies until you start cleaning and scraping. I had mine out and on a chain hoist and I was at it for days and days using oven cleaner, brake cleaner, degreaser, and, finally, my wife's little kitchen steam cleaner to get the caked on grease from around the bolt holes. If you are going to try and clean around the castle nuts and cotter pins while they are installed, just paint it black because you won't get it to cover and stoick over 100 years of crud.
Most auto parts stores sell spray cans of "Engine Black" which should work just fine.
Here's the Ford Green , brushed on , on my late 26/27 model year.
Very nice ! I like the green . In my opinion the lighter color shows more the beauty. But im gonna have to decide to go non-original.
