Was everything painted silver but tanks and fly wheels?Was block and exhaust manifold painted with hi-temp paint or same as the rest?

I believe that is correct. If I am wrong I am confident I will quickly be corrected. This site is very educational.

What model motor are you working on? Some parts came painted or polished.

There is a list showing what was what in the Old Iron Reference Library for club members only thanks to Doug Hudgel and Dick Gorz.

The A50s steel parts are painted aluminum parts are polished. Might try scrubbing the paint may be ok on a lot of it just hidden under years of crud, at least mine was mostly ok.

Most of the paint on mine is okay too.The power head is mostly devoid of paint after cleaning so I was thinking of painting it.The info in the members library says "light machinery gray" is that what yours is?whats left on mine just lucked kind of silver.
