Same part # , 3 different manufacturers

Anybody notice when they go on Jack's small engines or other sites & look up a part, for example a belt they get 3 different brands (simplicity, snapper, & murray) all have the same part #, but have 3 different prices. Are these the same exact belts & should I get the cheapest one ?

If the number is the same then the parts will be the same. When Al Eden was last posting I believe he mentioned how the Briggs parts distribution center had parts for all the product lines picked from the same building. Briggs has done a lot of consolidation. None of the parts say Murray, Snapper, or Simplicity on them anymore. They all have Briggs and Stratton labels.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
