I am going to fix up my large frame snowblower and want to paint it. It was yellow. What paint code or color was it? I am not looking for showroom paint job just real close.

Is it something I can get at Tractor supply?

The Bolens # is 1719209 for the spray can, 1718210 for the pint, I think. I can't find info beyond that.

You will most likely have to get it custom matched. I havent seen any "stock" colors anywhere that are a close match.

Bolens numbers do not crossover, your best bet is to get it custom matched like doc said.

:ditto:

The cans I got from Bruce were never opened but the paint was like Jello when I opened them. When I went to get them scanned, The scanner couldnt get a match on the paint because it was like that....

You also need to check the numbers on the can as the shade of yellow changed over the years. For example, A can from the early 60's would not be correct for a Largeframe Blower.......
