Good feeling

Postby Alan Gee » Sat Jul 12, 2014 8:08 am

Its nice to go into a place knowing you are looking for a " Hens tooth " , you steo up to the counter , tell the guy what you want and he does not look at you like you are from Mars or starts off with going to a computer and then on with the 20 questions. I went to the tractor parts place in Troy Pa. asked for gaskets for the lower final drives, a distributer cap , wires and points, oil filter and a fuse holder. The guy said , OK turned around went to a set of drawers and with no look up of part numbers pulled out everyting. Ta Da. great place.

We have 2 places like that in our area. One (Pine Valley Implement) handles used machinery and keeps a big assortment of parts on hand for the rigs he knows locals favor, and the other is an IH dealer (Flieg's Equipment). The dealer may have to look up the part number, simply to know where it is stored, but they are good also.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I'm assuming you are referring to Warner's if it is in Troy. I have nothing but praise for their parts department.

I did a complete engine tear down on my Cub in the summer of 1997; bought replacement parts locally, then moved while everything was still in pieces. One of the new items was a brand new head from Case/IH. The following Spring while assembling everything, it was discovered that the water jackets in the head did not match up with the water jackets in the block. The dealer the head was purchased from had since gone out of business. Despite the fact I did not buy the head from Warner's, their parts guy went to bat for me with Case/IH to get it replaced. It turned out there were quite a few heads in inventory that were bad as well.

As far as I know, they are the only Case/IH dealer left in that part of PA.

Sounds awesome, wish they were around here. When I started Rex '48 I went to a local dealer who shall remain nameless. Figured I would give the guy a chance to be get business for all the parts I needed for thee refurb. Shall we say my shopping locally effort ended poorly.

You are lucky folks who have that dealer close by.
