They are also a site sponsor, which means they help this site be here, for us. Great service and same day shipping, unlike some places, that don't process an order, for days. Ed

Answer depends on what you need for parts.

Local auto parts store is a good place to start. My local auto parts store stocks most routine Cub maintenance items and can obtain a lot of the Cub tractor parts. Actually my local auto parts store beats the online prices when you figure in the additional postage and handling charges. I'm also greatly in favor of purchasing locally.

I use the near by Case/IH and New Holland dealers and I purchase from the commercial and private advertisers on this site.

Just an observation on using web sites. Some of the items being offered for sale on some sites are not up to expected quality. So, don't base your purchase entirely on price.

If you are doing something requiring a lot of different parts, suggest making a list of the needed parts and parts numbers. Then compare prices from 3 or 4 different sources.
I have an excuse. CRS.

TM is the best, others may be cheaper but TM's quality is by far the best

For the best.... there are two: TM and Carter and Gruenwald. Both are site sponsors and both are extremely knowledgeable about Cubs. There are several advantages to dealing with either, the parts ARE for a Cub and OEM quality.

Stuff from TM will get to me in 2 days! If it doesn't meet his high standards, he won't sell it PERIOD.

One of the parts guys at C&G is Ken Updike and he wrote the book, so to speak:

Never overlook the local IH dealer if you have one close. Fortunately I have two excellent caseIH dealers within an hour from me in opposite directions. If not, Carter & Gruenewald are excellent.

TM is outstanding as well in terms of service. Unfortunately they don't carry some stuff that they used to, and it's hard to find anywhere else. Deluxe seat cushions are a good example. I have found some things they used to sell (like the cushions) on the Steiner website.

You really know how to open up a can of worms.....
IH only parts - I go to my dealer 10 miles down the road, but only after I have cross checked him against TM and C&G and the like. Sometimes he's so out of line you can't believe. Other times he's the cheapest in the country.
Common parts - I shop Oreilly against Napa against Summit against Rockauto. If you find the common number (Like Sealed Power 5098X for piston rings) you open up the field of potential vendors immensely. Timken numbers pop up on Rockauto if you can get the cross reference.
Used parts - ebay, Hamilton Bob, craigslist whoever's got what you need.
Easy way - just call one of the site sponsors - they've done all that leg work for you.

Agree with everyone else. In addition, Tractor Supply has some basic stuff like tires, mufflers/parts, fuel bowls, points, etc. More than I thought they would...

mrdibs, don't get a mufflers a TSC. There is a reason TM does NOT sell the Stanley one. (He gave me one he bought to evaluate, I 'regifted' it... )

Too late. I had an exhaust pipe made to fit it because mine was missing, so if it's dimensionally challenged I wouldn't know. I'll check the brand when I get home - sticker still on it.

On the mufflers, check Carter & Gruenwald. I think they have new, nos-style mufflers for the Cub, or soon will.
