Wheelbarrow Dump Cart

The man who has the one below says it was originally a "Radio Flyer";
This is the picture I have of a Radio Flyer, made just like a JD #30;
I have one coming & would like to restore it to original if I can find the right info! ~~ Lowell

I have a John Deere 30 cart that looks like a wheelborrow on wheels.
A JD #30 has hard rubber tires underneath the tub.
This one has pneumatic tires outside the tub. ~~ Lowell

It came today via Fed Ex, dismantled. It has had a rough plate welded to the tongue for reinforcement which will need to come off. Then clean & paint, I'll go with "Old Cat Yellow" as it looks to be a good color match. Gtractor has one & says his shows a faint "Radio" on it, don't know if it has anything to do with "Radio Flyer" or not. I'm still looking for more info on it.
Will fit my 70 I just fine! ~~ Lowell

The tongue is made from two 1/8 x 1-1/2" straps & two braces. I'm replacing the main straps with 3/16 x 1-1/2" for more strength.
Closed paint I could find locally was Van Sickle "New Cat Yellow" in spray cans, so that's what it will get. ~~ Lowell

Still have to paint the outside of the tub & remount the tires, then re-assemble.
