    Depend on what kind of parts you are looking for, but Berlin Power Equipment in Berlin Mass. has just about anything that you could ever want.

    well, for the most part, since nothing is broken yet, i am looking for some attachments. What i saw in a catalog from the 70s was a 2 cubic foot wieght box in the back. i guess you can take the hitch off and mount this thing using the three bolts.they say it weighs 200 pounds when filled with sand.Simple, could be made in a machine shop cheap.

    No problem, if I think of or see any place in my travels I'll let you know. It can be hard to find parts for an older tractor that is not a Deere (not that Deers need new parts!;) ).
