The serial number 99577 is correct according to the serial number list. Under the hood and on several parts there is evidence of plenty of white paint. He hasn't decided which color to paint it yet. I sort of think he should stick with the red myself, but that is his decision. He has things all torn apart and changing fluids and replacing leaky gaskets. Having a ball with it.
Hi Cecil: Been a while since I checked in on the forum. The demonstartor restoration is coming along well. My son has got the tractor painted white and still making repairs, such as seals and gaskets. Right now he is replacing the brakes. Someone got the brake drum in backwards in an earlier repair so he is replacing it due to some out of round wear.
Also started repainting some of the implements he got with the tractor. So our question today is about one of those implements. It is the height adjuster for the cultivator. In stripping it down we noticed the underlying color is a royal blue color. Would this have been an undercoat or an original color rather than the red? Did Cub have a blue color on anything?
Thanks again for any help.
