Postby Ralph » Sat Apr 10, 2004 8:37 pm

Anyone know what color the mower deck should be on this 63 Lo-boy?
Thanks Ralph

Looks like a Woods 42. If so, it is the correct color, only faded. I believe Woods calls the color burnt orange. If you don't have a local Woods dealer, you can order the paint from Carter and Gruenwald; they are linked to this page. 8)

What is the paint code? Are there any cross-references for Dupont, etc.?

Rudi,

I am not going to be much help with the paint code. I ordered the Woods paint from C&G to paint this mower. Sorry. :oops:

CB: No problem. I imagine that Bermuda Ken will probably read this thread, and maybe he can give me a hand to set up the paint chart for the woods mowers! That would be another nice addition to the server!

BTW, I really did like how you restored yours. Too bad it was required to fund other cubs - that would have been a top of the line keeper!

I do not have any generic interchange paint numbers for the Woods paint colors. MAYBE.....you will just have to "settle" and use the Genuine Woods paint instead of an automotive equivalent.

Ralph,

I have a Woods 42 mower that was not the burnt orange color, it was yellow. I found the original color under the spindle assembly when restoring it. The yellow color was very similar to the Federal yellow on the Cub. I also have another Woods 42 mower (probably from the first years of production) that was red. I likewise found the original color under the spindle assembly while doing repairs. This red color is quiet a bit "redder" than the IH 2150, but very much red.

The burnt orange color is one of my favorite colors on those decks. My LoBoy has a 59 inch deck that I plan to paint the burnt orange color with the guards and skids being the off white.

Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

NICE MOWING RIG RALPH.

NICE MOWER CUB BUD.

Does reversing the rear wheels give the Cub much more stability?

Thanks for the compliment on the mower.

By reversing the wheels, you do widen the distance between the rear wheels, lowering the center of gravity. If you "dish-out" the rear wheels, go ahead and widen front axle, assuming you have the adjustable front axle.

Over the weekend I got both of the mowers blasted and painted.
The bottom coat of paint on this mower was the cub yellow so that is what I painted it back .

Beautiful work Ralph.

Would you have any close up pictures of the pulley system for the LOBOY?
