New Holland Yellow paint...

Recommended Posts

Kent
... since it does look like Rustoleum may have discontinued their yellow paint that I've been using (American Accents, Brilliant Yellow), I'm looking for another alternative for the old yellow Allis B-series.... Has anyone tried New Holland Yellow? I picked up a can the last time I was at the local farm store, but haven't really tried it. I compared it quickly to something I'd previously painted with the Rustoleum, and it looked promising.... Since I use and abuse my tractors so much, I want something that I can easily use in small doses (i.e. not a 1-quart cup sprayer to clean) and that I can paint a piece or two at a time, repaint individual pieces when scratched, etc. Here's one paint chart that shows how New Holland yellow falls between John Deere yellow (too yellow) and Cat yellow (too dark)...

Does look like it could be pretty close... That J.I.Powder White looks like it could be close to the color on my Broadmoor dash and wheels...but its had to tell on the PC.might just be the way my color settings are, LOL.I think most people are using just regular white..

Yes it does look pretty close... I looked for some white for my 2010 and ended up using gloss white for the wheels, but now I might be checking into the Heston White or maybe the paint kevin is talking about...

Kent; Check out the yellow that Deere uses on their big bulldozers, graders, etc. It is darker than the John Deere yellow used on the farm and garden tractors, and I think it is a decent match with the Allis color.

I was at Home of Economy in Grand Forks and looked at the VanSickle color chart for future referance. Nobody around to ask questions. It does look like a good paint. I was looking for paint for my 720's if I get time or is it ambition?

Kent- I just bought a can of the New Holland yellow and sprayed some parts - the color chart & the color on the cap is definately misleading - it's a lot brighter than either of these. I'll be at the show in Mass later this month (as long as things go as planned). I'll bring along some pieces to show you.

Kent, My son painted his racing kart with the New Holland yellow and Agco gloss black. This yellow is what I consider a "brilliant" yellow not even close to the more muted tone I have seen on a number of restored AC tractors at shows last summer. I am told, by Maple Valley Equipment, Nashville MI., that New Holland introduced this bright yellow a few years ago for use on their new skid steer and related equipment.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
