Default I got one!!!

Just acquired an original IHC M 3 HP engine (havent had a good look, but know it has ran recently), now to decide whether to paint it. I will try to post pictures soon
Im working on a W14 Mccormick Deering right now and I was just wondering if the ihc M dark greeen paint was the same as the one used on some of the tractors, If anyone has a paint code that would be great too.

Mike, the dark green paint for the M's could be;

Adirondack Green 84155
Rustoleum Hunter Green.

Congrats with your new toy

Hey Mike.
So you got the "M", eh ? If it's as original as you explained to me earlier, I think you better just get out the soap & water followed by the boiled linseed oil with mineral spirits routine. I think it's best said that an engine is only in it's original clothes can always repaint an engine but you can't make it "original paint" again. TTYL.
