        *actually should be a flat black for all chassis parts.

            Not to put too fine a point on it, I think it's more of a semi-gloss than flat black as Chris suggested. Eastwood sells an underhood black in a rattle can that is the right glossy-ness.

              I rebuilt one that had a dash of green, like an assembly inspection mark, painted in a streak where the two halves join.

                Hey kid, what's the situation? Are you guys putting another engine in or rebuilding the original?

                Paint everything shiny gloss.. Make it look good!!

                  I agree with Skip - semigloss black.

                    I agree with Matt - shiny black is the best. Once it is wiped down a few times to remove road grime, it will appear the semi-gloss of the original finish. Flat black doesn't cut it and looks poorly. I've never seen an original factory part painted flat black, at least on a Studebaker. The factory used "chassis black". Just look at any factory photos of chassis and parts and note the shine!

                      Poor Kid! Now he's all confused. I took him to the store today. He found Satin black, semi gloss, and low gloss. He asked me "Papa, which one should I get?" I told him they were all about the same. He said most of the forum members said Semi Gloss, so that's what he went with. I think he was happy with it.

                      He bought semi gloss black and silver engine paint. Each part he removed,he would clean and paint it. He has a very pretty P/S pump, water manifold, Intake, valley cover,and brackets.

                        I do not believe that the factory used chassis black paint on the power steering pump or other underhood items.

                          I thought it was pretty well verified that Budd shot the frames with a thin coat of gloss black, with no primer. They remained shiny for about a week. The power steering pumps were presumably painted by the manufacturer (Bendix, Saginaw) with a higher-temp black paint. I dunno about Bendix, but Saginaw, as a division of GM, would have used their standard semi-gloss black.

                            Studebaker Engineering Dept. documents for Saginaw Steering Gear Div. (S.S.G.) pumps specified they be received painted:


                            Air Dry Black Enamel
                            S.S.G. code #4141 or Rinshed-Mason # XP 3351
