Default 3031 oil pan color?

Are the oil pans supposed to be engine color or black?

OK black they are!

That would leave me to believe that the engines were not painted as 1 unit from the factory. The blocks were painted then they must of added the oil pan on.

Everything was painted individually after machining and before being assembled. That is why none of the fasteners are painted.
