HB112 engine color

I am going to restore my HB112 soon. On this particular tractor the grill, engine and transmission are painted orange. Is this standard on the HB series and not the regular B100's? My assumption is that it's not, but I'd like to keep it original if it is. THANKS!! John

Thanks for the pictures Maynard! I couldn't find any HB112 pics here. Do you think that because its a hydro it would be a different color? I assume that it's supposed to be like the rest of the B112's and was repainted orange at some point in time.

Nope. Grille was originally chrome, with chrome panels on the uprights on each side, and the small top grille in the hood is black. The engine, bevel gear box and transmission were all black -- though some alumiinum tranny parts (if any) may not have been painted at all. It certainly wouldn't have been orange any where....
