ym1700 frame paint?

Postby joel » Wed Jan 06, 2021 7:12 am

i am restoring a ym1700d
it is a really early serial #
the color of the paint on the frame and castings under the repaint that was done years many years ago. ,looks to be the original color, it appears the orinal color was a very metallic goldish silver, greenish color , definately not the geen/ gray color you see on most restored tractors ,
anybody else run into this
its actually a more attractive color , and it looks like it left the factory like this

thanks

i

Every picture I find of any early green model shows either a very dark grey or black for motor/frame/transmission. https://app.box.com/s/ixo90ijayvw6rtq2a ... 1269242210

All of the original lime green looking hood YM1700 models had a blackish frame like Winston's picture. The red hooded YM1700 versions had the darker grey/green frames. I think that lighter green frame color might just be faded/oxidized/40+ year old paint.
