Fredricks works real good!. Not a perfect Org match but it's held up for what I used it for. Red /White

Sully,
This is the base color for the engine and frame if you want the perfect match to the original Yanmar color out of Japan, otherwise get it really close.

If you want Tree Frog green for the green tractor hood, fenders, etc, then it's this one,

For the US version YM's (classic era) - the engine & chassis color is black.

I wonder how many people that green repulsed? I can't help but like it; of course, I like National Safety Slime Lime.

At one time, I posted the history of why the Tree Frog green came about. It's all connected to John Deere.

I'm so glad the Gray Market machines are not black engines. Black absorbs heat so much. I have some black compost barrels, and the heat coming off them are very intense.

The YM 4-digit machine engines stay cooler in non-black.
