O man, I need several for my Cat 8T Motor Grader. I'm sure all three of my 12A Traxcavators have theirs but I'll go look.👍🤣

Those are great. The other thing we need are stamps that are in the original font that Cat used, which doesn't exactly match anything that I find online, so it might have been a font conjured by the Drafting Dept.

Neil, are you referring to the actual tractor serial number that was stamped in the tag ?

Yes sir, I haven't been able to match that font to anything. It seems like it's a mash-up of various fonts. I'll bet there was a discussion in the drafting room back in the day where everyone got to state what features they liked and then some wag put together a font that combined all those features. I'm probably wrong but that's what it seems like

there might be a reason for that neil. or maybe the original manufacturer went out of business.

Some manufacturers and end user companies will actually patent the font so it can't legally be copied. A lot of rail companies did that. BNSF, CP CN etc.Cat probably did with most of theirs as well. I know the fonts used in the parts book are different to every font that I have. I have about 4000.
