AC 917H Paint Color

Recommended Posts

Corporate orange is the color of the Ag Tractors. The 700/900 series ACs were originally Powder Orange (Simplicity part #1685591 for quarts of enamel, #1685581 for spray can). I think that it is still available. Powder Orange is slightly different than Corporate Orange. Deep Orange was used on the Simplicity tractors (has more red in it). Part #1685612 for quart and #1685611 for spray can. I know that Deep Orange was used on the 1973 3400 series, and I believe it started with the 1971 3300 tractors.

Ray & Mike, Thanks much - very helpful info. I'm going on a hunt for some "Simplicity Orange"! tweinke - Looks like we are nearly neighbors! Would like to hear more about your 917 or maybe some photos! I've got the mower deck in the shop now for some clean up - helps pass the time on the cold winter evenings. Out KT's sound like twins (pun intended)! I'm 2nd owner (father in laws machine - he moved to town and bought a green one!); he got quite a few hours out of that motor, but it got to where it needed some expensive attention (including many quarts of oil); thought we would repower and get the KT to someone with skills to rebuild it - sounds like it's going into a 912.

        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
