Size:  2.9 KB we use tremclad dark green for the frame and engine ihc red for wheels and roof any one who knows these tractors says this is really close. I have yet to come across a paint code the cab is dark grey with yellow stripes and the eagle. these are great tractors that can be used and are not fragile like some other big old tractors,great find.

I agree with Mike.... They are a Very Cool tractor.

I could be wrong, but I'm guessing if it's a 1917 vintage that it has the later automotive style radiator on it ?

The front axle on the one here in killarney is green as well as the one at austin. Did you pick this one up in a little town outside of starbuck? if so i have seen it there before,it seemed to be a good engine exept for all the pieces it's in

A couple of nights at Austin. ol' 60case seemed to be in pieces as well!
As for paint, Canadian Tire had a nice dark green called Commercial Green and a nice dark red called Cardinal Red. I can probably find the #s if you need them? I used them on the Eagle and we used them on a George White traction engine. The old stuff always seemed to have nice, dark, rich reds and greens!
Congratulations on the tractor - a very nice project, even for an old lad like you!

Hey Rick M-
If you think THAT'S bad, how about you look me up if I make it to Portland and I cook us up some prime rib sandwiches and talk about my beloved Chicago Blackhawks the rest of the night?

Was supposed to go to Portland with some local desperados but had to cancel for work!
As for the Black Hawks, if Moose Vasco and Eric Nesterenko are not playing for them now, then I don't want to hear about them!
