Oh no, it's not that hard to get parts. I got my piston/rings off an ebay seller, plus the gaskets from him also. I think the valve guides were the hardest to find, but Brian has a place he can get pretty much any part you could need. Don't worry, it's not going to be a problem. I'll PM Brian to get him to chime in.PennsylvaniaNewt said:I guess I am trying to figure if getting this model tractor is going to be a mistake in the long run when I go to rebuild the engine?
