Paint for a Wards/Simplicity walk behind

Recommended Posts

Didn't see any specific information about this machine. It's a Wards/Simplicity built Walk behind 2 wheeler. Does any one have a ideal as to what paint I could use that would be a close match? It was one of the last ones built in the late 60's if that's any help. At some point I want to start repainting a few items on it. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Had a fellow at another forum give me a heads up on a Duplicolor DE 1607. It's an engine paint and matchs exactly the color on my Wards/Simplicity. Glad I finally found something. I was at a Simplicity dealer yesterday and snagged a can of touch up paint. It was used but still felt full. They gave me a nice discount on it.

HI, I think the orange Chevrolet engine paint is a very close match for the walk behinds. The early tractors were much redder. I think I still have a new quart of the factory red orange unopened. I don't know why they don't still make spray cans of it. Sad. Al Eden

        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
