What are your recommendations for parts source?? Carb kits, gaskets, etc..??? IH seems to be pricey but might be most accurate?? Thanks, Dusty B

Depends on the parts. Some automotive stores can cross-reference items like bearings. Farmallparts.com is a decent place aswell. I got my Super A headgasket from them. I like going to CaseIH because I like to source my parts from a single vendor if I can and because my local CaseIH dealer is run by people I like and give you personal attention.

If you don't have their catalog, Valu-Bilt, has a free one. Not that you have to buy parts from Valu-bilt, but it's an excellent resource.
Edit. I pass the two local auto parts stores every day. I see vehicles from the local mechanics shops and the go-fer truck from the GM dealership picking up parts. And then, I have some parts catalogs from different brands of auto parts stores. They use the same part numbers and parts description. At the local New Holland dealership, handing over to a customer a New Holland part with an IH logo and part number on it.

Gut feeling is that a lot of tractor and auto parts are stocked in a few mega warehouses in the USA. A company orders the parts, parts get put in a boxes/packing showing that companies logo and information.

I worked for a while at a major children's book distributing company. The company sent out catalogs under different brand names and when the order arrived, packaged the books in boxes with company name matching the order.

Point of my discussion, unless it's something uncommon, try your local suppliers. For major cast iron parts, check with local tractor salvage yards.
I have an excuse. CRS.
