Is there a map that tells me what paint goes where on a Super C? It appears it is all red except the wheel rims. If that is the case what paint do I use there?

As Ken said, dont worry about the correct shade of red, 99.9% of people could never tell the difference. Jim gave you some good numbers. I have used the PPG for years. On my M, after almost 20 years, its still looks fine. My Cub was painted with 2150, and there is a distinct difference in color, it darker to me, and hasnt held up as good as the PPG. Both my F-14 and working M were both painted with IIRC Rustoleums IH red, and is close to the 2150, so close I had a guy ask me Saturday if they were painted with 2150. The biggest problem with it is its faded pretty bad in spots over the years, but has held up to flaking and abuse on the M, and oil and such on the 14. (It sits most of the time now since I cant hand crank it anymore.)

Thank you all this was helpful. Where is the best place to buy the paint?

Look for dealers of the brands shown in my post. Real important to get quality paint. The Automotive Body materiaols supplier suould be a help. Jim

Ditto! Check the manufacturers websites. They often have dealer locators on them. Then call around. We had like 4 PPG dealers here. One was a lot cheaper than the others, so we used them most of the time.

Not to be negative about someone trying to find the "correct" shade of Red paint, but for me as long as it's not JD green or Allis orange or Ford grey any red is fine!

But then 99.9% of what I have my BN for is to mow the yard and haul wood for the wood stove. Yea I did paint it back something like 30 years or so ago when I rebuilt it from ground up and even bought a decal kit for it even if the only one I could find at the time only had the "B"s for the hood not the "BN"s

I'd probably get shot by some if they saw the square halogen headlights I put one it. At least I scavanged them off a Hough loader at work and Houghs were made by IH so they are almost legal!

I probably shouldn't comment on "originality" posts anymore, but the gear shifter knob was painted red, and the radiator was as well, except the fins were left bare. They "arrived" bare.

Our super H knob was black as coal, I was sitting on it from 4 years old till that knob split and was replaced in 1985. All the radiators I have seen were not copper and shiny, they were very light coated black. No offense, Just going by what I experience, as I am sure, are you. Jim

Pictures from the Wisconsin Historical Society would disagree with you, (and me too).

None taken. It is just interesting and probably not terribly important. Thanks. Jim

Interesting one more time. The War production Letter series had iron knobs, and those were painted. My brother had one for a while with paint on it where it hit the shaft. Jim

That is the case. The radiator was not painted red, it was OEM black and had overspray on it. The dist cap and wires were mostly left black. The axles in back were unpainted. Th steering wheel rim was not painted, nor the shifter knob, and Amp/oil pressure gauges. Radiator cap no paint. I would use the IH paint number:
Prior to mid 1949, IH 50/PPG 70019/DuPont 7410, and others. Mid 1949 or later, IH 1102B, I don't think there is a PPG or DuPont number, ask your supplier--CaseIH does not sell it. That leaves IH 2150/PPG 71310/DuPont 96766 which appeared in 1961, which is what "most" people use.
The rims are actually galvanized, and if needing paint, need to be prepped for painting galvanized metal. Preference seems to go with Hammertone silver from Rustoleum.

Today's Featured Article - 1935 John Deere BN History - The History of My Tractor - by Alexander G. Knox. My grandfather, Orval A. Knox of Chandler, Arizona, affectionately known as Pa, purchased this tractor new from the John Deere/Caterpillar dealer (now Arizona Machinery) in 1935. It was his first new tractor and his first with rubber tires. He used it on his farm growing cotton, alfalfa, corn, wheat, milo, barley, and oats. My father, Norman L. Knox, recalls Pa putting a mower on the tractor during the day and then ... [Read Article]
