Can someone confirm the paint color for a Cummins engine as installed in a 1949 International Westcoaster. Was it the Cummins old gold or something else. I seem to remember that International painted at least some of the Cummins engines red in the late 1950's and into the mid 1960's.   Ed Chambers

I don't know the answer on an International, but didn't Cummins use a nice gray color in the '40's?

IH also Painted some of there Cummings into the late 70's. My 73 transtar's Cummings is red and I was wondering why it wasn't the regular Cummings color.....

I believe that Cummins used the gray up intill 1952 when the PT pump was put into service then went to the old gold.

Ed, why don't you call Dan Mahoney at Mahoney and Sons Cummins and see what he says.

Ed, I was talking to Mahoney & Sons today and they said "red" for a '40's International, most other manufacturers used the Cummins gray.
