Hi Jan,

Check out the link below. Scroll down until you get to "Color".

In the end though it should be whatever you personally prefer.

According to some of my AC books, the early B's could have had a number of different paint schemes on the wheels. I have a 48' B, and once I got the grime off of the rims, they were galvanized which again, according to some of the data books I have would have been correct for that period. The center hub on mine was orange, which I repainted the same. Like Justin, I repainted my rear wheels & used a Stainless Steel paint by Rustoleum from Home Depot. It was real close to the galvanized color. I then dusted a coat of clear enamel over them. The clear give's em' a nice satin finish again with just a little sheen. I think they look pretty nice. But, like Justin said, do what you like the best. Enjoy! Steve B.

Hello, as far as I have ever been told they were originially all orange rims and hub caps. Most people now a days paint them either silver or black for cosmetic looks. If you have atractor thats' going to go to high ranking shows etc then I would paint it orange but if not then do whatever looks th best to you. What I did with my lil B was I painted th ehub caps orange, black on the nuts and bolts. and a high glossy metallics silver which I got at Lowes. It is liek a Satin type of spray paint! Incredible paint one coat loked unbelievable still did not even finish the can on all 4 wheels.

Good luck!

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
