Deep down it's yellow ?

Recommended Posts

Nice tractor and Welcome to the Club!!! To answer your question, no I haven't seen that on any of my orange ones, It could have been some sort of primer. All of my orange tractors were bare metal, beneath the orange.

my first tractor is a Big Ten. it is predominantly orange but patches of yellow are visible. it has had two slightly different shades of yellow that appear to be complete paint jobs, not just touch up. where i have removed parts to repair them the underlying metal is bare. the 2012 landlord is orange i originally thought simplicity's were yellow and a-c' were orange. now i think the year may have somrthing to do with the color. tractor three will be orange because that is what i had when i started overhauling it

Simplicities are orange, the early ACs are yellow, the later ones (after 1971) were orange. I have seen some green Deutz-Allis with orange paint under the green. I assume that they were left overs when DA changed to green, and had Simplicity repaint some of the parts.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
