Default Colour of 2 litre block

What paint is used for 2 litre blocks to match the original? If it makes any difference, mine is a 100A engine.

Antony,

may be this Bristol 403 cleaning before dismantling will give you an idea.

This isn't any help, but out of interest I decided that Austin-Healey engine green looks really nice so that's what I've used. The original Bristol colour was similar, but rather more towards a light brown than a light green

I was going through my printed copy of the old BOC WIKI and came across some notes I had added that the original engine paint was Speedcote 2 French Grey BS 3630, searching this on google brought me to a page on Stefano Pasini's site of the restoration of my old 403 which is no doubt where I first noted it down from and his source of information was Derek Hughes another long term owner.
Geoff.
