1927 through 1937 two main bearing single cylinder engines were medium dark green. Some of the 1931 short deep fuel tank engines were painted medium olive drab color.

1937 all the first twin cylinder engines were painted with the single cylinder engine green color.

The very last 1937 through 1938 twin cylinder engines were painted all green except with black crystal wrinkle finish on the starter pedal assy, starter cover and the starter gear assy.

1939 through 1942 the twin cylinder engines were painted with black crystal wrinkle finish.

1945 through 1952 the twin cylinder engines were painted with smooth black enamel

All of the single horizontal cylinder engines and all of the twin cylinder engines used the same color on their flat pulleys or V pulleys whatever the engines were painted.
