Pat, You're a blessing. You not only (probably) solved Doug's dilemma, you solved mine as well.
I'm 72 years young next week. Have a beloved old pair of Janvrin 205s and with my equally ancient Artex shoes I'm well into my second hundred miles on them. Darn right shoe separated from its sole the other day just as I started off. All those years of attic heat finally got to the sole glue I guess.. Local shops just laughed when I said I wanted 3 pin shoes. I know 75 MM from nothing. Didn't dare order until I KNEW. Was about to consult on-line conversion charts etc. until I read your post. Yippee!! The old Janvrins are 2.5 inches (plus a bit) wide so I'm ordering now and paying for fast delivery too. Great x-country Winter in Southern NH this year. NOT going to miss it.
Thanks again and good gliding.
