29 FE FH President 6.00 -1, 157858 color.

Recommended Posts

The engine is Studebaker green along with the standard compression head.  If the engine has an optional higher compression head only the head is painted the color to identify it as a non standard compression head.  So you could have a Studebaker green engine with Sky Blue head.

I once bought all the head prints from the museum.  They listed the colors.  I have never seen a president with a head other than green or red.  I have done 3 speedway motors with the high compression head as red. I don't think any other color than the motor color green looks good.   Surprising was the print for the 7 to 1 compression head.  It said to use the head 157858 and mill off .050.
