What brand/color of paint did you use for the yellow?


Does anyone know if there was a decal that went on the steering wheel cap or was it blank?

Did you buy the decals or did you save the old ones? I'll have to ask Sams Bolens if the husky man gets included in the decal set as it is not shown in his pictures.
I got the hood off and gave it to my uncle who is great at welding aluminum. There were a few cracks in the hood from the 40 years of vibration from the engine.

Does anyone have some good pictures of the estate keeper's deck decals?
Mainly I need a good pic of the height adjustment ones.

Here's a pic showing where the missing decals should go.

Update on some Decals:

I got a quote from sam on Decals for the EK and they run $80
I mentioned to him that the set should include the center steering wheel cap decal, so he is adding that



If anyone has an EK deck with the height adjustment decals on it I would really appreciate if you could take some pics so I can get some made.

The only bad thing about the Estate keepers is there is not alot of information available on these things LOL

Well, It seems like hunting down an air cleaner elbow is becoming quite the challenge.
I called quite a few places and they all said this elbow is NLA/Obsolete

we may have to try and make a homemade unit :rolleyes:

Thanks for the photo!

The EK10's used the other Zenith carb though.
I do have an old style one like that laying around with the same air cleaner. If I cant find one for the carb thats currently on mine I will rebuild the other carb and use the oil bath air cleaner.

Looks like you have the EK7 Jerome

Did you get a deck with yours?
If you have one, are the decals still intact?
