I also like the black starters. You have me wondering though which color the starter on my CUB is... The whole tractor is all one color (reddish rust) but I can't visualize that starter to save me. I guess I will have to go look. Dang, now I have to try to remember where I left it.
I think it is in the west barn down the road.
It's way too cold out to go looking for that Cub. Maybe this will help?

K, will start with the easy stuff first -- it is currently -25C with a wind chill of -34C. Overnight it will fall to -28 C and a wind chill of -36. They are forecasting continuing cold in the morning -28 C and a wind chill possibly as low as - 38 to - 40 or lower At -40C it is equal to -40F, either way it is real cold. Needless to say, school will probably be cancelled for the third day in a row.
The snow is so hard that I can walk on it and not break through - I weigh almost 200 lbs or 89 kilo.
I have euphamistically been saying that it is cold enough to freeze the you know what's off of a polar bear, but in the paper today they got almost as good -- NB in a DEEP FREEZE - Cold enough to freeze a Polar Bear's Posterior!
I have not seen continuous cold like this since I left the Arctic. Did 2 6-month tours May to Dec in Alert - top of Ellesmere Island and almost 3 years in Inuvik - head of the McKenzie Delta, both in the NWT. Real cold up there, but much drier. In fact it was colder here on Friday than it was at the North Pole!
Good thing I got lot's of wood in the basement, we is gonna need it.
As for the colour thingy - see I am in a very great quandry. Ellie's is still red, but Jethro's is black. Ellie's has been rebuilt but they didn't bother painting it. Now I gotta decide what to do - although I am seriously leaning toward black -- probably GLOSS BLACK to boot!

OH!!! You black starter guys are gonna make me cry!!!
Starters are red, along with carbs manifolds and wiring harnesses!
You wouldn't believe the colour combos we get here. We've had a pink and brown IH W-4, a blue W-4, a red ford, a burgundy case ( mettalic too I think), and many others. My dad and I say that painting the wrong colour is the final indgnity PO's perform on a tractor before completely destroying it!
But hey, I digress, it's your tractor, paint it your way!

Well, I really don't know how this thread went from a welcome to #700 (Ike) to the color
of starters but I like it.
My starters happen to be rusty red with a heavy coat of Oregon Mossy Green.
As for color or colour, George can attest to the fact that using less letters extends the useful life of the digits.
