917.251641 Green Paint Color?

I have a garden tractor which I use, which works very well, which I really like using, so I am restoring it including by re-painting it. Does anyone know the green paint color or know of a way to determine the color of the green paint for it?

I have been using Valspar Tractor & Implement Paint with the Valspar Enamel Hardener for similar projects and I have been very happy with it, but the colors are limited to the tractor colors of the major full-size tractor manufacturers.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated it. My garden tractor's Owner's Manual has a date of December 17, 1995.

Sears CRAFTSMAN Garden Tractor 20.5 HP Twin Kohler Command 46" Hydro

You can go to a autobody supply shop, they should be able to color match it, and provide you with paint in either spray cans or various size cans for using your own spray gun.

Great idea! Thanks, that way I can also consider different paint types too.

Re: 917.251641 Green Paint Color?

Thanks Cranman! Who knew that Rustoleum has a "Dark" Hunter Green in addition to "Hunter Green"? But there it is:

https://www.rustoleum.com/product-ca...ective-enamel/


Dark Hunter Green 7733502 - Quart

vs

Hunter Green - 7738502 - Quart

Now I just need to find where to buy it...

Edit: Found it on ebay:



https://www.ebay.com/itm/RUST-OLEUM-...4AAOSwBkRaDhqq

BTW, I have had success with adding Valspar Enamel Hardener to Rustoleum Oil Based Paint, so I have no problem using Rustoleum products over Valspar if they have the color I am looking for.

There are part numbers for paint in the owners manual. You won't like the price as it is around $20 per spray can. The Dark Hunter Green is also available in a spray can.

: Thank you for your reply! I looked through my owners manual and didn't find a paint code. It is in .pdf format and I searched for the following terms: paint, color and code and found nothing about the color of the paint. If you have additional suggestions please let me know.

tomw0 - I scoured my owners manual as well and found no paint codes. Can you give an idea where that info would be?

Re: 917.251641 Green Paint Color?

Oops. I thought I had found paint codes in the manual, but it must have been after searching on the web. Sears at one point sold individual rattle cans of paint supposed to match their product line. The spray cans were in the $20 each range, so I passed.

But you can find a load of colors in this document:

http://www.barrettsmallengine.com/ay...%20%282%29.pdf

The PDF I have for my machine has one page dedicated to replacement decals, so they may be available somewhere...
I may have found an accessory listing but it's not handy at the moment, but I'll look.

Tom, et al., I searched ebay with the decal part numbers for my Craftsman 46" garden tractor (see below) but cannot find them. Can any of you suggest a place that sells them?

That is a smokin' deal! Was that a spray can or a quart can? And in what state/province are you located?

Re: 917.251641 Green Paint Color?

Got mine today too! US $11.99 + $5.00 shipping + $93 tax = $17.92 for a quart. Ebay shipping is much faster than Amazon with the right seller. This was from Zoro tools. Ordered yesterday, Monday, June 17. Delivered today, Tuesday, June 18. Thanks again Cranman for pointing out the existence of the Dark Hunter Green. I have an unopened quart of Hunter Green in the garage, but I knew better than to use it because it would likely not have even been close.

Any suggestion of a source of supply of Decals?

Re: 917.251641 Green Paint Color?

Any chance either of you two can post photos of the finished project that would show the Dark Hunter Green along side the original paint? If it is a match, that would be great.
