I recently purchased this tractor at an auction and I am looking for an owner's manual, and would like to know what the original color should be. This is what is on the side of the tractor: "Edgeton tractor No 502TN540 give tractor no. when writing factory. Engine lubrication mix good grade 30 motor oil such as Mobil Oil A with regular grade gasoline like Mobil gas. Mix in a separate container before filling tractor gasoline tank see instruction book for correct mixture. Transmission lubrication use a good high-grade gear lubricant such as warm weather Mobil lube SAE 140. Cold weather Mobil lube SAE 90. Standard Engine Co., Minneapolis, Minn."

Also, while out plowing the field one day, I uncovered this axe. Part of the letters are worn off and I would like to know what it says. Here is what I can see (I am not sure how many letters are in front):
