wheel color

Recommended Posts

what is the proper color for the wheels on a B-1? i just second coated the rear rims for the Big Ten with rustoleum appliance epoxy in 'Biquit'. i'll sand blast the extra front rims this week at work and the spare rear for the B-1. figure i might as well keep going while i'm on a roll.

not really but thanks. the pic shows that the bearing cover is the same color as the bulk of the tractor, which i didn't know before. but what shade of white are the rims? are all FDT rims the same color? (wouldn't that make things simple!) what i was hoping for was the spray can color so i can pick up a couple of cans tomorrow, not that i have sand blasted yet or primed. but if i have the finish paint in the way, i will actually do something.

Rustoleum Canvas White is a good choice if you can find it. My second choice is Rustoleum Antique White, which has a little more of a beige cast to it. Both paints cover well and seem to hold up well. John U

        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
