The PN you seek is R 258 M...Parts Depot doesn"t have them so you"re going to have to go to your John Deere Dealer and ask them to see if any other dealers have them. That one dealership that advertises in Green Magazine would probably be a good choice.

You didn"t say WHICH drill you"re working on however the Part Catalogs for the FB, FB-A, FB-B and FB-C are available as a free PDF download from JDParts.com.

I have an FB and I would upgrade to the rubber tubes. You can get what Deere is selling now at TSC and cut to fit.

I asked the same question and someone replied that they had several NOS ones and wanted to know what length I needed. But haven't been to the farm and checked. However the ones you want are going to have a smaller diameter than the ones used for normal seed. We had spiral ribbon steel tubes on our Oliver grass seed box and they were pretty small diameter compared to the standard seed tubes. Nobody appears to reproduce them, but there appears to be a market.

I bet you'll have to find them here & there off of junkers. There are many thousands of these machines- many of them still working- and the change was made a long time ago to the same clear tube used for planter insecticide. As the useful life of a drill tapers off, a lot of guys would stop replacing the grass seed tubes and just let it fall where it may.

I assume you want the originals for an authentic restoration. Be prepared for a long hunt and a lot of tubes before you come up with a full set more-or-less matching in patina. But hey, if it was easy, everybody'd be doin' it...
