Ariens "white" spray paint color

Going to be rebuilding/restoring the engine on my 1963 10ML60D(Tecumseh H60) and was wondering what is the best color white to use. I was recently painted some parts on my 1973 using Ivory white as thats what a google search came up with and i feel it was to "cream" colored, would like to find a lighter color. Thanks

Try going to old and look up a member named markus.

He does Tecumseh restorations. His work is top notch, he uses automotive gas resistant paints.

I used Rust-Oleum Appliance Epoxy re-painting the handlebars on Frankie with their Rusty Metal Primer underneath (2 heavy coats each)...laid down real nice, but the restore hasn't really been tested with use yet. The white isn't a match, not "creme"...but still looks pretty good considering I painted everything that was white (so things match).

I hope it holds up, but not counting on it. I sun-baked everything in the dead of summer heat/sun (a week of 100 degree clear sunny days) so I hope it hardened up well. I'm half expecting any gas spills to harm it...but I've used automotive/engine paint before on another blower and it didn't hold up well to gas who knows really.

I just don't have a way to properly bake in paint. So, I'm a very careful gas pourer obviously
