I have kept my father's late 1950's Bolen's walk-behind which I cherish, and am planning to restore. Can you direct me to the correct green and yellow paints I will need for the engine and hood? Thank you.

Hello, Welcome to GTT!
I am going to move your thread to the Bolens forum so it gets more exposure.
Can you post some pictures and model number of your machine? There were 3 different greens and 2 yellows used on these tractors.

Welcome to GTT. There are manuals for downloading in our Manuals Section. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks to all that have responded. I will check the S/N information from the engine and post this with a picture.

I only have the engine and shroud, as my father parted out the walk-behind for other things decades ago. A picture is attached. If I have the numbers right, I copied down the following:
Engine Model No. 8R6
Type No. 107857
Again, any reference to the correct paint for my restoration would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Your 12BB Power ho would have been made from 1950-1953

Re Post #80, I am assuming these are mixing codes for RM or MS I could take to a auto paint store to have them give me the correct paint mix? I have the MS information for the Bolen's orange. Thanks.

Yes, I had the green custom mixed, if you have a local napa near by they should be able to mix them for you with the directions on the sheet.
