A previous owner had painted it the MM colors. I hope to find enough information here to get started with the restoration. All my previous restorations have been John Deere letter series tractors. The serial number of the tractor is 525648 I believe that makes it a 1935 and the engine serial number is 525711. I have a later SN parts tractor also.
Right now I have the following questions:
1. Should it be painted MM-TC Gray?
It would have come out gray some of the later ones were painted MM colors as dealers had trouble selling them when the new series came out so they painted them like the new series
2. I have a service manual for a KT. Is the engine the same as a MTA?
The motor should be same
If not does anyone know a good source for a MTA Manual?
The KT Manual is missing pages 29-34, can anyone tell me what is on those pages?
3. How about a good source for parts? Right now all I know I need is a seat and seat support. Most of the parts with the exception of the engine is in a pile so I am not sure what I need until I start reassembly.
I Would try the sources listed on the Home Page of this site.
4. Does anyone know the Sherwin-Williams paint code for MM-TC Gray? I went to the Sherwin-Williams store today and they could not find it listed under MM-TC Gray or TC Gray.
Any help will be very much appreciated.
