    Fram Orange, is it Chevy Engine or Allis-Chalmers?

    Iím getting around to buttoning up my engine after blowing a head gasket on my CJ3B. It occurred to me while I had so much stuff off of it, I should repaint what I can. I sort of feel like a kid putting a model kit together. So, the engine color (for the head) was easy: Ford Engine Red. Rocker arm cover, oil filter cover & bracket and air filter: High Temp Gloss Black.

    So that leaves the Fram oil filter body. What do you think, Chevy Engine or Allis-Chalmers Orange?

    Now I'm going to have Iron Butterfly playing in the back of my mind. Worse things could happen.

    I think that might be Grace Slick and the Jefferson Airplane. Iron Butterfly was inagaddadavida. HA, now you will have both songs in your head!

    I use Chevy Engine orange. It is real close.
