HELP! 1966 CUB paint question

Postby chrisbz9 » Tue Aug 24, 2004 11:09 am

Hello Everyone,

I am in the process of restoring my 1966 Cub, and I need to know where to buy paint. Both the off white & Yellow. I found that Rustoleum sells an off white for the International Harvester. How about the yellow. I know everyone says look at the paint code experts from Wisconsin? But I do not get the answer I am looking for. Please help with a color selection from Rustoleum or the paint code.

I believe the name of the yellow is Federal Yellow, I don't have the number but your IH dealer probably has it.

Here is a link to the Paint chart on Rudi's site/;,%20Decals%20&%20Other%20Finish%20Questions/Farmall%20Paint%20Chart%20-%2001.htm

The white is IH 901 or PPG 8665
the yellow is IH federal yellow or PPG 81518 Maybe you can cross reference these numbers.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

1966 paint

Postby chrisbz9 » Wed Aug 25, 2004 6:11 am

Hello Folks,

Thanks for the information, I am trying to cross reference the color.
Does anyone know if the lights on a 1966 cub were originally white or off white (IH #901)?
Also where is the best place to purchase a muffler pipe between the manifold & the muffler? This one goes under or to the back of the tractor.

Thanks again

I think all your questions are aswered above, but I wll throw in my 2 cents.
Someone gave me the Cub Cadet page that listed cross references on paint. The 'Ditzler' listing is PPG and I was able to get a local auto paint supplier to mix it up for me (at $40 a quart!).

Someone told me that Rustoleum 'construction helmet yellow' is a very good match in spray paint. I have not found a good match for the white in a spray just yet.

The lights are white.

If you have a cub cadet dealer close you can get the right stuff from them
I think it was about $20.00 a quart.
