[E-Type] E-type S3 V12 COLOURS ORIGINALITY: GEARBOX, CONVERTER, CLUTCH

Hello everyone!

My 1971 E-type Series 3 V12 (1S71149BW) is having huge
gearbox overhaul. In result the gearbox was completely
dissasembled, NOS parts bought etc.

I have noticed that:

  1. gearbox housing was BLACK painted
  2. clutch housing was not painted
  3. converter was ORANGE painted

I want to keep the car original, that is why my question is:
Does anyone know what were original paint colours of these
above?

  1. Gearbox housing
  2. Converter
  3. Clutch housing–

Mateusz,

1 and 3 are correct. ‘‘Converter’’ is not a familiar term,
but if you mean the differential, it is correct, it is
orange colored – the color of Glyptal, which is a
protective paint for cast iron.

I feel better now that you posted that Jerry. I was feeling
really dumb not knowing what a converter was in e-type speak.–

Mateusz,

Sorry, I did not notice the ‘‘BW’’ in your ID number What I
said applies to manual transmissions.

But, in an automatic, isn’t the torque converter the
clutch? There would not be two items, would there? Just
asking, I am not familiar with the BW transmission setup.

In Series 3 E-type with Borg Warner T12 automatic
transmission are three main parts:

gearbox + torque converter + housing of torque converter.

Yes we can say that torque converter is similar to clutch in
manual transmission.–

Sorry Mateusz, English is a funny language. When I saw ‘‘gear
box’’ and ‘‘clutch housing’’ my mind went to a four speed manual
transmission. An automatic transmission never crossed my mind.–
