What Orange & White are folks using to repaint these tractors? I have a tiller that has decent paint on it yet and could use parts from it to get the orange from, but thought I would see what folks have used on their tractor. I don't have any decent parts to get the white from though.

Kenny, are those the same for the 60's models? I found AC Orange that is real close to Jake orange,but did not know what color the white was. BTW thanks for that info on my Hydro 1200. Got that rascal all working now. Found a bad nut on the PTO shaft as well as misconfirguration of hardware and just real general disuse.

What is the AC Orange you found? I have 2 AC 416S's that need paint too and they are real close to my Jake orange. This was probably the same in the 60's.

A rattle can option for the 70s Jake orange is Chevrolet engine orange paint. Not sure if it matches what the NEW paint was supposed to be, but it is a pretty close match to 40 year old paint on my Chief frame and transaxle.

It sure looks close, but it's been a few years since I used any of that. I was thinking of getting a can to try!
