I hold Randall's information in great stead (that means I find he's almost
right) but in this case...
I can't swear it's true, but I always thought that the oil filter canister was a
shade of sorta pea green. Have also heard theorys that they were originally a
Peacock Blue that would fade with heat or age to a shade of green but that seems
doubtful. Anyway, mine was green (still is but on the shelf) and I always
thought it to be original.
I also think the handle of the heater vlave was originally green, but more of an
apple green. The body of the valve is AFAIK just plain brass.
