Not sure if I still have the paint number.. will check for you. I helped my father restore this 5 hp several years ago... It had some of the original paint and striping visible. He has since let this engine go. I'll see if I can get the picture to post...

Good morning Dale ,
the picture you sent certainly gives me a good idea of the paint color I need for the restoration project, I see you and your Father did a nice job of restoring the 5 HP , is the decal on the side of the water hopper available from some reproduction shop that you know of, regards Bobby J

Hi Bobby J,
When we brought this engine home it was still in it's working clothes. A good portion of the original decal and striping was visible. I couldn't find a supplier for the decal so I did the best I could in making one up. I have some more photos I can put up but I need to scan them... I'll see what I can get done over the holiday.... A couple of people have been wanting some more photos as well.

Happy holidays!
Dale
