I have been in the dark about this thing till you came alone and shed some light on what it is, my parts gut who is a friend of mine told me it was a 1969 16 HP B & S And the guy i bought the tractor from said it was a 69 Farmking? The guy I bought it from had six garden tractors up for sale and right in the middle of all of them was this orange thing that was taller, longer, and wider, than the rest it looked like more power and that is what i was looking for and and i loaded it up and took it home.
I'm left with a few choices I guess, I can figure out the paint colors and badges, or i can just do it up the way i think it should look I use all my tractors and equipment and no matter what there's going to be scratches and what not but I believe in preserving these things too so it's getting a make over one way or another.

If you go to the events section in the forum, and look up the LAGC show from Dover last summer. Go to page 17 and go down to Canawlers' post , he has a link of pictures in ther and you can see Dads columbias with the proper hood stripes

I don't believe that is considered a 990 with the standard transaxle the 990s had a hydrostatic tansaxle and hydro lift and the implements are shaft driven but it's a good example of the colors and i kind of dig the stripe on the hood and the engine looks to be a dark grey or dark silver and the white looks to be some kind of off white. None the less can i model mine after this one?

Very hearty looking tractors. The white almost looks IH white, is that close or is there another shade that's close?

The stripe is black and white with silver border. Both the 16 and 8 Columbias have been in my family since new and are both 72's.
The 16 has 6000 hrs on it

Are those 990's the one thing that stands out is all the 990's Ive seen have 15 inch rear wheels the one in the picture looks like it has 12 inch wheels.

I know maybe it's slightly rude to send someone to another forum but I like to spread the knowledge around. I just did a search for "Columbia" in the MTD sub-forum over at MTF (you're a member there also, right?) and came up with quite a few threads; many with pictures of Columbia 990s. You might want to poke around over there for some pictures. Many of the ones I saw weren't the correct color scheme but many were.

No , it's a gear drive model, peerless trans and a clutch system like cub used except it used 4 pins instead of 3. Jim put it up for ya so you can see the way the stripes belong, like I said before dad has 2 columbias and owned them since new.
