DC decal questions

Hi Everyone,

I am getting ready to paint the DC soon, but have a couple questions on decal placement. I have a 53' DC3 with foot clutch.
Where does the decal of Old Abe go? I have seen some people place it on the side of the radiator casting - but don't think this is correct? Since it doesn't have the older style hood, there is no place for it on the side of the gas tank. Was the Old Abe decal just not used on the newer DC's?
Also while degreasing and pressure washing I came across this decal on the bottom right side of the block near the magneto.

Anyone reproduce these??

Thanks everyone!

The patent decal did not come in the set that I ordered. Does anyone know where I could get one?

The eagle was never put on the side of the radiator on SC s,DC s or LA s from the factory. No matter where you put it , the old 'bird' looks nice and colorful. clint

The patents decal should come in a decal set for a DC.

I realize that it's not correct but I have mine on the side of the radiator. Works for me and numerous people have commented on it.

Matt, I don't think the later model DCs used the eagle. Our 53 SC didn't have it on there and all of the DCs I remember seeing didn't use it. I think the VACs did though.

The pictures in the manual for the later DC's doesn't show a decal on the hood by the fuel tank or none on the radiator either.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
