I miss read your original question, sorry about that. The original Ford draw bar had ll holes with a cast part number of 9N-5182 and a script fort logo. When Ferguson started making is tractors he copied the draw bar but to avoid copyright laws he made it 9 holes with a part number of HF5182. I have never seen nor heard of a Ford drawbar with any other number on it so I would assume the first change also included dropping the cast part number.
