After reading your response about paint, and specifically about the orange – red primer, I began to wonder. I do not remember ever reading about the primer used on the tractors. Is it the color I saw on the inside of the differential housing on my F 40? February 24, 2015.
Yes, its the same red primer you see on the inside of most castings. Harry Ferguson really believed in primer. Sadly, once MF took over they did away with primer on implements and most sheet metal.
