Massey Harris Pony Implement Colour?

I am preparing to restore a 1950 Massey-Harris Pony and four implements - No. 801 plow, No. 40 cultivator, No. 40 disk harrow and No. 40 sickle bar mower. The restoration of the implements is really just a matter painting and adding decals. Problem is, I cannot seem to find out what the colour schemes would have been .... and I am running out of places to pose the question. Anyone here know?
The cultivator appears to have been green frame, red gangs and, possibly, yellow teeth. The plow has a few blue spots of paint and the mower has a hint of a darker blue on the swathboard.
Any help would be much appreciated. If I cannot identify the proper colours, I may paint them pink - if it's going to be wrong, might as well be painfully obviously wrong.

Thanks, muleboss. I think I may have to study the aging chemistry of vintage farm implement paints. I noticed today that my unrestored McCormick-Deering Cub plow, that I know was blue, has the same green on the beam that my Massey-Harris No. 40 cultivator does.

I have pony equipment also and all mine is painted rusty color. I really do not have any idea what color they should be.

I did see a picture of a pony in a book with a plow and the plow beam was red.
