It's not all CNH thats raising the prices, it's the consumer. Maybe years ago when they made there own parts and used them on many different models the could stay competitive. I can remember buying bearings at dealer because they were cheaper that anyone else. Over the years we the people wanted higher wages, better hours, better working conditions. We wanted more and more. We know where that led to. Ih would contact suppliers to furnish the parts, usage dropped, IH had to rebid to keep them available. Soon the venders were charging higher prices to keep making the part. After market then killed the dealer. IH still had to supply the parts. The 10 years I worked at the dealership we never ever ordered a IH clutch, but IH/Case still showed it available. Just think you price a IH clutch for 700.oo and a Hy-capity one for 400.00 and make a killing on the aftermarket one. Warrany is another issue. Take older parts, after market quit them do to no demand and now we want IH/CAse to provide them 50 years later at the 50's price. One really hasn't seen high prices for older parts. Start buying parts for vehicles. A HHR inner door handle you have to buy the whole inner panel. Fuel pumps 450-700. Generator 450-600 dollars.Price a GM wheel hub vs Napa. Any one put new injectors in a GM vehicle lately. ok I gotta stop.
