Homelite Paint Codes

Recommended Posts

I am starting to restore a Simplicity built Homelite and would like to know if anyone could tell me the proper paint codes for both the blue & the white. My tractor has been repainted years ago and I have not been able to find any "original" paint to match to. I hope to post some pics as I progress. Thanks for any help. PeppyDan

Thanks, I'll be looking forward to getting it. I have two Simplicity built(T-10 & T-13)& one A.C. built(T-16) Homelites. The T-13 shuttle I just purchased about a month ago for $20.00. Thats not a typo, I noticed it sitting behind a garage so I stopped in and asked the guy if he would sell it or parts from it and he said $20 I could have it all. He said the clutch was wore out and the tractor would barely move on its own power 2 or 3 years ago when he parked it. I got it home and found the shuttle linkage was in need of adjustment and the tension spring for the clutch idler pulley was broke. I also found the float had a small hole in it. I repaired that and cleaned the points, it started right up using the battery which was still charged. The engine does smoke and is a little noisy so I'll have to rebuild it, but for $20 I didn't expect much. I am getting some pics of the tractor to send to Kent. Thanks again for any help on the paint colors. PeppyDan

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
