I remember my Grandfather wouldn't buy antifreeze for our John deere ar. Just drained it every time it got parked. I came home from school and started it to go do chores and siezed it up.As a kid, there was still a lot of those early E s and WC s still in use and shedded. I definitely remember that there were 2 different shades. I just thought the pigment faded but Dad always said the newer paint was different. About those frost cracked blocks, Around here on most Allis tractors up to the WD 45, broken blocks were all too common. I don't know if it was because of the old alkahol based solution boiling out or if those Allis owners here were just too cheap to even use antifreeze? But ones with out a broken block was a true rarity! Most were patched with a plate bolted over the crack, and ran that way for decades.
