I apologize for my lack of Case knowledge thus far but I am learning quickly thanksnto this site when I have some time! I own a 1976 210 and recently bought what I believe to be a 1981 222. Unfortunately I haven't had much time to tinker with either with that job thing and our 3 very active little kids. Just a quick question though. My 222 has a white mower deck. I've looked at it closely enough That I don't believe that it has been painted. Maybe I need to inspect it a little more. The pics that I have seen of these models and their decks are painted power red. Was There a white version from the factory?
