31 Packard 826 Paint

Does anyone know where I might find the paint code for the engine green and the dark blue for the body. It is almost black.
Off topic, how about a source of generator brush springs. This is a CD865 generator from I believe, a 29 Packard. Spring is normal coiled flat spring.
Thanks in advance, Fred.

Hi Fred,
I tried a few years back to find those generator brush springs for a 1929 CD865 (three spring configuration). I searched high and low and couldn't find them (including Kanter and Max Merritt). I wound up going on Ebay and looking at industrial generator parts. Surprisingly, there were quite a few, and I found something that was roughly the same size and had a similar amount of force (using the very unscientific calculation known as "feels about right"). If you find someone reproducing those springs, or stumble on a pile of them, please reach back out to me...I will happily buy one or more. Thanks
