Parts availability

Recommended Posts

When parts break on your tractor how difficult is it to find a replacement ? I know there are some of you that have parts tractors and may have the part right there in your shop, but for those that dont have that, how long does it usually take ? Say maybe if you broke a starter and a rear end ? thnx for any response

There are to many variables involved to really answer this... How old of a tractor? Which parts???? Some parts are no longer available so the wait would be indefinite...;) How big of a dealership, and how long have they been around? The dealership I use has been selling ACs and Simps for a loooong time, they have a lot of obscure parts in stock, the ones they don't (That are still available) they usually get within 3 days for me. Murpheys Law?? If it is no longer available and the tractor won't run without it, this is the part that will fail the day before the family reunion when you want the yard to look it's best. :D

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
