Paint Code

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the paint code would be for the orange used on the 70-80's model Simplicity's. I am preparing to restore my 3314 this fall. When i did this last ( about 15 years ago) i think i used Chevy orange.....thanks...

The following are still available from Simplicity. I have listed the Simplicity Quart part numbers: For 1977 thru Early Model Year 1985 Products "Simplicity Orange 1685037 >>>superceded 1685591SM "White" 1685032 For Products Built 12/1/85 thru 7/1/88. "Classic Orange" 1685560 "White" 1685032 For Products Built 7/1/88 thru 8/1/89. "Powder Orange" 1685591 "White" 1685032 For Products Built After 8/1/89. "Deep Orange" 1685612 "White" 1685032 A good auto paint supplier ought to be able to do color matching and custom blend it for you but you need a good sample of the old paint. http://simpletractors.com/Club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=77887

Great info Ray! Do you know if Simplicity Orange 1685037 is similar to the AC corporate orange? The big tractors in that time period were painted corp orange. I'm thinking of using corp on my 1978 AC 712H.

        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
