I get 634. But it could be 1234 or 1834 also.

My 682 has over 1300 hours and is in this good of shape so IF the meter still works then I wouldn't be suprised if it has a higher number. It doesn't matter so much if you are restoring it... since you'll replace all wear parts.

 

So is your goal to really do a full restoration or just a rebuild?

I dont think im gonna do a full restoration... I know im gonna replace fuel hose, iso mounts, rebuild carb, change hydro fliud, replace rod ends on all linkages, rebuild trunion, new tires, repaint, new lights, new hydro hoses, and try to find new muffler box with right muffler... Has anyone used the MAGIC brand enamel from tractor supply? I have used it before and it works well. They have federal yellow, and IH white but the white has a little beige in it... its 4.99 a can for paint, 6.99 a can for sandable primer, and 6.99 a can for clear...

I'm using the magic brand on my 44C rebuild. Seems to go on pretty well and dries with a really nice shine.

I am using the IH White on my deck and it is considerably off white... almost cream colored, but I like it.

I think an off white would look better and probably get more money in the long run. But I haven't been close to a 1450 to see what the 'white' looks like.

The Magic brand IH white might be a little too off white. You can see in the pictures above, the side panels are the right color and the hood wrong color. the lighter one is right.

I really like the creamy white look of the IH white. That is what I would paint it.
