JD Construction Yellow Mix Ratio

Post by ddaxe » Tue May 19, 2020 7:43 pm

My 440 resto is coming along pretty good. I should have the ol girl running in the next couple of days. I was fortunate that one the parts machine had a fresh rebuilt engine, but just as important, it came with 3 gallons of the correct JD yellow paint. I knew I wanted to spray the paint, but there wasn't any real thinning instructions. I tried a small mix to see if automotive thinners would curdle the paint. It didn't and I found 4:1 worked best. It laid down nice and didn't want to run. The only thing with this colour I have to remember is keeping my hands clean when assembling or else I leave the greasy paw prints everywhere.. Good luck with your projects...
