I have a lot of different colors in rattle cans. I just spray some on scrap metal and pick what like and take it to the paint store and have them mix up some good enamel and then mix it with some hardener. I am in no way close to being a painter and my eyesight is going south with having macular degeneration.

It is just going to be a work tractor but after doing all the mechanical work on it I thought I would try and make it look
better than what is was when I started on it. As far as the original factory colors go I don’t really care. I think the Ford Guy that came up with that Buff color must have been a new Daddy and he liked the color of those new born diapers.

The Blue color I picked was Rust-Oleum ford blue engine enamel 248945. The Enamel they mixed might be a shade off.

The loader and sheet metal are Extreme Yellow with gloss hardener. I am still working on the sheet metal. This is a 64- 4130. That my story and I’m sticking
to it.

oldseabee, was all of the work in the original plan or did the mission "creep" just a little?

Well dang, it looks like the PO's engine assembler might have put the dipstick tube upside down in the block, with the detent ring on the inside of the block. I can't put it out, it stops solid. Well that makes me wonder what else they might have done differently.

The brand new fresh oil I just put in the tractor also has a nice red tint to it. Like they might have spray painted the inside of the oil pan.

Time to pull the pan.
