Been reading this site for a while, first post.
I have a 1954 Farmall Super A-1, serial #356111. I am in the process of "restoring" the tractor that I bought a few months ago.
I am having difficulty determining from the conflicting information that I have read, about the paint colors of particular parts on the tractor.
Primarily I am wondering if the cultivators front and back should be painted red or blue? What about the lift arms and springs? What about the mounting arm on the front left side of the tractor that mounts to the front axle?
It appears from grinding that the front mounting arm (correct name?) was originally blue, but it"s difficult to tell. It appears to have definitely been some other color than red, either blue or black.
Any help with this is greatly appreciated. I tried posting a few pictures the first time I typed this, but experienced some difficulty in doing so.
