One thing I noticed lately is that they have raised the prices of parts considerably, but so has everyone else. The other thing I noticed is they are apparently not as 'quality' oriented as they used to be. One example is the 6205-J (ST225B) bearing for the PTO and right angle pulley, I just got was marked 'Made in China' on the box and had no markings at all on the bearing. They changed the part number, probably to consolidate with Case and NH numbers. It was $9.
As long as there is a market, they will sell parts for old stuff.... as soon as we quit buying parts they WILL disappear from the supply chain. Just my guess.
