What are you using for gear oil? I use 90W mineral oil. Itís a little thick for the Michigan winters but helps keep the noise down with these straight cut gears. I use to get it at my local Napa store but they are so messed up on inventory for the last couple years I'm not sure if they even carry it anymore.
As far as the foot boards go, I don't believe Ford ever made any for the N model tractors. Steel Craft and a few other aftermarket companies did as well as several "homemade". Can you post a picture so we can see yours?
Mine are ho-made and I put a tool box inside the right one.
