I have a 1972 110. Restoring it and currently rebuilding the engine. Should the engine on it be painted green or should it be black? How about the hydraulic lift pump etc that is mounted on top of the engine? Green or black.

Engine color changed in 1970 across the Deere line due to changes on the Custom Color line:

 

 

Originally when they were released in 1969 the entire tractor was painted in Dogwood White except for the hood and seat, of course. This included such things as the engine, fuel tank, mower deck attachment linkage, and the mule drive on certain models. John Deere found that the white paint on the engine had a tendency to stain. Also this meant that more parts had to be painted separately. So, for 1970, black paint was used on the engine, fuel tank, mower attachment linkages and some other items. This way these parts could be used on both the custom color and the green lawn and garden tractors without separate painting being done. Even though the engine on the Custom Color 140 was changed to black in 1970, the air cleaner cover remained in white. The seat base is unique to Custom Colored tractors in that it is textured and not smooth like the green tractors.

On mine engine and hydraulic was all green but I suspect some one painted it that way after production as the paint job is poor and some areas are still mostly black. I want it factory colors when I'm done. Thanks all for your replies.

I'm not to sure on the colors but make sure you use heat resistant paint on the head and maybe the block to because regular paint won't take the heat. Heat resistant paint is kinda expensive but in the long run it is worth it.

I used John Deere muffler black paint on my 120.  It is not glossy and it is not flat either.  After one season of use the cooling fins are a dark charcoal gray/black and the housings are fine.

No question the engine is going to be black. I have searched online for pictures and that part makes sense. The hydraulic pump however seems hard to find info on. I have yet to find a pic where the pump is black. I have seen them yellow and one I saw was white. Mine is green and does not show evidence of a repaint like the engine had. Could it have been green from factory?

Production year determines the "proper" color of the engine.  Prior to '70 the standard engine was green on a green tractor and white on a custom color machine.  Here is my quote from above that is lifted from the WFM website.

 

 

Originally when they were released in 1969 the entire tractor was painted in Dogwood White except for the hood and seat, of course. This included such things as the engine, fuel tank, mower deck attachment linkage, and the mule drive on certain models. John Deere found that the white paint on the engine had a tendency to stain.
