    Isn't Sam Weiner the patron saint of old equipment in Ohio? It seems that you google it or craigslist search and you shall find it

    I think I have found the part that I need. To try and make a long story short I had new tires mounted on my 69 Cat, and less than ten blocks from the tire dealer, the right rear tire blew, and when the machine hit the pavement, it bent the rim. I located a rim in Texas, so they are shipping it to me. Thanks for all the suggestions, but none of them had the part I needed.

    Keep an eye out for a 922B parts machine, it's worth the investment if you plan on keeping the old loader for awhile yet. You can still get parts from Cat for the old iron but it's high priced.
