Tank Emblems

How do I remove the Farmall emblems off of the gas tank? I would like to repaint the tank. My Cub is a 1954.

Hi,
IH changed to the metal names during 1954, at serial number 185001, I guess you have one of those Cubs.
The names have metal pins welded on the back sides, that push into holes in the hood. The holes have round clips in them that grip the pins.
It is better to push them out from the backside, so you don't break the welds loose from the stainless steel, they usually fit tight in the clips. Easy to get to the backside, if you have the hood off.
Leave the clips in the holes in the hood.

Below is a listing from TM Tractor for a new nameplate, you can see the pins and clips. :)

The McCormick names and the front emblem are attached the same way as the Farmall Cub names.
