Paint Question

Tue Mar 09, 2004 9:31 pm

Hi all

I am not painting now and may have someone else do it. I have a 61 with the four bar white grille. I know somewhere on here I can find the paint codes I need, but don't know how to get there. I know the red is the IH 2160, but don't know the white for the grille or the silver for the rear wheels (rims) THANKS to all you kind folks on here. Paul K. in N.H.

Just look for any post by me and the Cub Manual link is in my signature line. Click on the link and then the Paint, Decals & Other Finish ?'s link and you will see the Paint Chart!

Hope this helps

Hi Rudi

so I guess the white for the grille is 901 the cub color previous to 1967, but didnot see a silver or aluminium IH color for wheels. You will have to bear with me if I am wrong.THANKS Paul K in N.H.

Paul, the silver for the rims is IH Argent Silver. Virtually any silver paint will do.

The only thing on the chart for the Aluminum is the Satin Finish, but does not give a paint code. I am hoping one of the guys will be able to supply that for me and maybe a few cross-refed colour codes as well.

Silver - I don't have the IH Iron Guard colour code, but it is available at the dealer. It cross refes over to Auto-Zone Dupli-color HP Wheel Coating #WP101.

Remember the wheels were origianaly galvanized and not painted. So aside from having them re-dipped, silver is probably the way to go.

Some of the guys should have other cross-refs as well (I hope!!)

White is either #902 or #905 (avilable at CaseIH Dealers)and the yellow is Federal Yellow.
