Hi, I own GPW 7588 from the 1st contract, Chester PA line.

What colour should the crankshaft pulley and nut be, gray or black? I think anything relating to the engine should be gray. I replaced my original pulley a few years ago and it was grey as was the pulley nut, but is gray correct?

Thanks, Eugene
