Once again folks fail to realize that YT is NOT a parts supplier. Yes, they offer to sell parts BUT they come from various suppliers. You order, they send you whatever is available from a handful of their suppliers. Good luck getting any TECH SUPPORT when problems arise, and they do often. All parts are made aftermarket nowadays but it matters who you buy from because few demand quality assurance. I buy from Dennis Carpenter, JUST8Ns, and STEINERS in that order. Denny Carpenter is the only licensed-by-FORD supplier who actually makes a lot of their parts because he owns and uses much of the original tooling he bought or leases out from Ford. Stamping dies and presses, drilling and milling machines, and others are used in his parts. JUST8Ns and STEINERS buy his stuff and also sell it. JUST8Ns was started by Don Barkley, who was Denny's QC man when he first started making tractor parts. All the other places simply clone his stuff in Cheena and often with poor results. So, it's your tractor, your money, your decision.
