  • I'm sure this has been answered before but I'll still ask. I have a blue and grey/white 1974 Ford 3000. Over the winter the one rear tire leaked fluid. I had the tire repaired and fluid removed from both tires. It left brown streaks on the white/grey wheel. Just what color is this. Can I get a couple of spray cans at TSC or somewhere to repaint the wheel. Just what color is this anyway? I've googled it but can't really find out. Thanks.

  • I had a New Holland paint chart but cannot find it. I think it was obsolete anyway -but you might want to look at the TISCO TP-470 Paint too. I'm not sure if this is the 'eggshell white' but seems to me the New Holland was more just plain white. TISCO is a decent, budget minded paint. It is made by the Van Sickle Paint Co.

  • QUESTIONABLE NH PAINT CHART
  • I found this but I have many concerns. The RED listed as "Old Ford Red Prior to 1965" but is too orangey. The FORD Medium Grey, is listed as "FORD GRAY -PRIOR TO 1965" for all 9N,2N, 8N, et al. There is no 9N FORD DARK GREY. There is only one NH White -listed as 'Bianca', used on all after '94. The important fact to know is that the FORD name was completely gone in the tractor world by 1992. ALL Ford Grey and/or White paints are not the same as the NH whites/greys that came later.

  • Ford sold Ford New Holland to Fiat in 1991. Part of the deal was continued use of Ford name for five years, so I believe you will see 1996 product with Ford name on it. When they bought us in 1986, I told fellow employees that I would give them five years, and it turned out to be the most accurate prediction I ever made.

  • Tim gives me more credit than I deserve...
    I don't know what that gray/white color is.
    I rehabbed a pair of rims on a 66 model last year - had them sand blasted, brazed a couple of rust holes, then prime and paint.
    I went to Fleet Farm and bought a quart of bright white tractor and implement enamel then had the guy there add some black colorant to it.
    We experimented a bit - add a few drops then shake, test, repeat.
    When we got to 25 drops I thought it was pretty close to original and quit. I had to buy the paint First but no charge for the mixing or colorant.
    By the way, I painted these with a brush. Bought a good china bristle brush and applied two coats over the course of a couple of days.
    No hardener or thinner. Just dipped straight out of the can.
    For a worker I think they came out pretty good.

  • Re: paint
  • Looks very nice to me. I'm just going to get a can or two at the hardware I believe. I think I can come close enough. Mine is a working tractor also. Thanks for the help.

  • Re: paint
  • Thanks.
    By the way,
    If you look close you can see the inside of the rim is a slightly different color.
    One quart for two coats on both rims and centers wasn't going to be quite enough paint. So on the insides of the rims I wasn't concerned with the color and painted the second coat with some left over Hundred Series gray that I had.
    These are 38" rims so one quart will easily do the outsides of your 28s.

  • Re: paint
  • The one who would know the correct shade is Ultradog; he is the resident Thousand Series expert. The blue/white paints changed over the years. A '74 Model would be New Holland I believe. If the tire was loaded with Calcium Chloride and leaked, you might consider draining it and then getting the rims cleaned and repainted, tires washed out and new tubes installed. Painting over oil or Ca Chl is only going to mask the stuff for a short time. The paint TSC sells now is MAJIC brand and garbage in my opinion. They use to stick and sell the VALSPAR brand which is a decent alkyd enamel. Once it is determined which paint code you need, your local CNH dealer may be the first option to shop at.

  • Re: paint
  • I hope it is OK if I jump in here. I know it is improper to hijack a thread but this one was talking about paint.

    The wheels on the inside are pretty dang rusty; the outside are not that bad. So since I have the wheels off anyway, I thought I would try to address the rust and then paint while I wait on parts to get down to me.

    So I was looking at a few places today. I didn't see anything I thought would work at Rural King. Tractor supply has a paint; Rust-Oleum Farm Implement Spray Paint, Ford Gray. Is that anyways close to the proper grey colour on an 49 8N? I may have to look on the internet and order but if there is a local venue it makes it easier.

    I also have a spray gun but no pressure regulator or dryer for the compressor. I am not sure if the old compressor can provide the flow rate needed. I have never used a spray gun in my life.

  • Re: paint
  • Ok thanks Tim. I took it to the tire shop last week. They took the fluid out and put two new tubes in. No rim damage everything is ok. I just had some streaks of brown on the one rim that I had sanded over. Power washed the tractor also but the brown streaks are still there. I thought I'd better put a little paint on and wanted it to match the fenders and other rims. To many different paints they used so I just wanted to get the one closest so I didn't have to repaint the fenders and the other rims.
