Does anyone have a color photo of this model or know the original color?

Something other than John Deere Green seemed to be a color they liked.

Think black was the determination for most Stover mills, but the airflow was green. Seems that is what I recall from a prior thread on here.

Did they use the color black on their open gear models too?

One more question in a line of many before I'm done.
Any idea on what this says? Something about zero oil

I'm guessing the weight oil they recommend.

I've seen that on an old grain drill I rebuilt. Use zero weight oil, means light oil.

Sometimes if you wet it down with water, you can see the lettering better.
