  • Distributor color
  • I have two more distributors to rebuild and these both have EI. My question is: Once rebuilt and tested what color should I paint them? The standard dark gray or sunshine red or pink? LOL.

  • HHHMMM... 6V or 12V??? Front Mount or Angle Mount??? ; > )

    I've never painted the standard aluminum base front mounts -just left them as-is. It's not a part that gets noticed. The only ones I've ever painted were the cast iron bases offered in 1943. If you must paint them to designate it's EI, I suggest YELLOW - for CAUTION - USE AT OWN RISK.

  • Front mount and one of each 6 & 12 volt.
    I normally try to match the engine color.
    Or I could just clean them up and leave them naked.
