Great looking paint Ray, is that hunter green?

It's Oliver green,
The experts say that it is the closes match to the original color used on the Ridemasters.

Ray, nice green color. I'd probably use it on a JD! But that's me!

Looking Good Ray :thumbs:

Ray, have you ever thought of taking an old chip of paint from one of your tractors and getting it custom matched?

Not really.
I've found a few spots of original paint on these Ridemasters when I've taken parts apart.
It is hard to judge with small spots of paint like that but I've compaired them to the Oliver paint color and I can't really see any diferance between the two.

I finished putting the engine back together today.
The only part that is missing is the flywheel screen that fits right behind the rope starter pulley and covers the hole in the flywheel shroud.
I'm still looking for one of the screens.

That looks like new! The tag came out great and really makes the engine look as good as it does. Keep it up, Ray!
