Ditto on the paint matching. As long as you're doing the whole tractor, then no one will notice if your a shade off. Just make sure to pick something you like.

Sorry guys I did not want to miss lead you I did not get new stickers I got to save the old ones but I want to see if some one can remake them
If you have them reproduced the vinyl reproduction decals won't have the chrome on them.
Your better off reusing yours.They look to be in great condition.
Either glue them back on or use a good heavy duty double sided tape and your good to go.
That's a nice design. The frame looks strong on it. It's definitely worth doing a restoration on it.
They used the same frame with the a 16hp briggs in it a couple years after these.The ones with the 16s always crack just below where the driveshaft hooks to the engine.
I've had 3 Hydro 16s 1 of which were broken in 1/2 and the other 2 was cracked and 1 G16 which was cracked.
They should of beefed up the frame when they decided to stick a huge cast iron Beast in them.The old cast 16hp briggs had no compression release and a heck of a lot of low end torque.At Idle you could see it twist the frame with every PUT PUT PUT.
The 10s,12s and 14s didn't seem to have a problem with the frame.I've heard of a few 14s that cracked but those tractors were abused.
