The thoughts on whether the lifting springs are blue or red seem to be a real mystery. I agree some pics of original plows show red, and then some Wi. Historical Society info mentions blue. I painted them blue on my #8 and blue they stay.
The IH 935 White is closest to what my memory tells me (dangerous assumption) they mostly looked like when I was young. I tried a couple other colors when I painted the wheels, but when I took them out in the sunlight they did not please me. The WHS once told me the IH archives for this color are lost and no real clue to follow.
You planning to attend the World Plowing Championships in Alberta next summer? I'd like to go but it's over 1400 miles...one way! I want to go to Ontario for their contest NE of Sarnia in Sept. Fun to talk with those fellows.
We are making plans for our April plowday, no date yet. Last yr had 45 acres, now we have 70.
With over 50 old tractors it doesn't take long to turn it all over.
