Well Im just about ready to start painting :bounce:can anybody tell me the colors for the H16? The black looks pretty basic and the white looks more like a cream color? I have desided to spray all parts with my spray gun. and I think I will get paint prices from Napa and Scherwin Williams. any thoughts on how much paint I will need?

I believe you will only need about 1 qt of white ( you will get about 2 coats on with it)
You can probably get 2 coats of black with 1 qt as well.
Since you will be adding reducer and hardener you will actually have more than 1 qt when you mix it.
On the Bolens I have restored so far, I have never used more than 1 qt for either the frame or body/hood and I got 2 coats on

The black is just a basic color,The white used on the H16 was a cream color. For the white I'd go to napa and ask to see their color charts as they have a pretty good match for the Bolens colors. Just take a sample piece if you have one and match it up.

OK so I dident fix the tranny leak.

It had one loose bolt and one missing but that was not the problem, so I pulled the tranny apart and found this inside on the bottom.

Anyone know what it is and where it goes?? Also if I take the gears out of the cover side do they have to go back the same way?

Only thing I can think of is its part of a thrust race for the thrust bearings.

I made a gasket for the tranny and put it back together last night. According to the manual all of the parts were in place. The thrust bearings are alot thicker than the peice that I found in the bottom of the tranny, the peice I found was paper thin. I am missing part#21 a shim. If anyone knows the dementions of this shim or where I can purchase one I would appriciate some info.

There were different size shims that were available..... I believe they came in .005, .010 and maybe .020

I will check with one of the sponsors! do you happen to know how much play is ideal between the shim and the snap ring?

I forgot this was a hydrostatic..... I'm not sure if this shim came in different sizes or if it just came in 1 size.

Well I picked up a shim today and completed the tranny. :) I also picked up the paint from napa. WOW!!!!!! 2 bones for that paint. I got the hood and the two rear wheel sanded and the body work done! All thats left is the seat pan and control tower. I need to let my fingers grow back, I keep sanding them to the bone. :) I think next time I will look into another method of stripping!!!!!

I hope to do some painting next week if all goes well. I was looking through some of the parts that I sanded and I see a fine film of rust on alot of them. Do I need to sand all of them again? :( What do you all recomend?

Usually as soon as you get down to bare metal, you need to prime the parts the same day as they will rust up pretty fast.
I'd probably sand them again if you want to have a nice finish.
