Re: 3031 oil pan color?

OK black they are!

That would leave me to believe that the engines were not painted as 1 unit from the factory. The blocks were painted then they must of added the oil pan on.

Re: Question about the ignition coil

Sounds like a coil issue. Even the the coil was just installed that does not mean the coil can take the heat.

Re: Starter Switch Alignment

X2 with JW and also make sure that the copper strip in the switch is not twisted so that it is not rubbing on one side or the other. If it wears through the cardboard it will short out.

Re: Generator voltage high ?

10 amps is too high.

Without the headlights being on you should have about 2-4 amps. If you dont drive with your headlights on you need to turn down the generators 3rd arm so the voltage is lower.
