Good evening Chris,
The parts folks didn't get anywhere with the numbers we gave them, but fortunately I finally found an old can of paint I got from F-N-H a few years ago.
This gave them the lead they needed and have a part number for it now, so hope they come up with some for me.
I do like these old Fordsons, as they are the first tractors I ever drove as a bairn back in Yorkshire in about 1959 or 60...
Weather here has been cold, but is milder now, maybe -10C of an eve, and warm in the daytime.
Still lots of snow, but patches of grass showing in the pastures now, and cows go looking to see if it's growing!
Have relatives in Scotland, and snow has been grim up there, and also relatives in Sussex, who are a bit worried about the cherry trees, but at least they're not in blossom!
(Been in Alberta 29 years now...) Thanks again,
