old- they had the rubber teeth as an option. Replace them with the spring steel teeth as they need replacing. They last much longer.

Ya I understand the steel ones lasting but finding them that fit can be hard. Looked a while back and pretty much found nothing

My NH dealer usually has them in stock. I haven't had much luck finding them anywhere else.

Ya nearest NH dealer to me is a good 40 miles one way. Living here at the lake of the Ozarks it seems the good farming places are all 40 plus miles from me

That's how it is here, too. Used to have 3 dealers in town, and JD dealer 15 miles away. Now, the JD dealer is part of a chain (and service is poor), and is the only dealer in the county. 3 NH dealers that I do business with - 45, 50 and 60 miles away.

Funny thing is that the 2 tractor dealers I have say 40 or so mile from me are both less then a mile apart. There is a JD dealer about 25 miles from me but I only have one running JD and it is so old they can not get much of any thing for it

Looking for Ford 503 parts or possibly a used rake for parts. Need one of the main bars that the teeth mount to (part 148228)

I would not part this one out since it works just fine other then the rubber teeth needing to be replaced. I might sell the whole thing

Thanks so much for the help folks. I hope to get to see it this week. It is supposed to be in perfect running condition with new belts. It also has the steel teeth, not rubber. I may be able to even get it delivered for the price too. Ill pull the trigger for the price if it is good. Boss unit is OK too after talking to one of the hay cutters that goes to our Church.

Two folks that hay in my area love them. I am being told that for the grass mix I will be working with they do very well, especially if I slow down and am careful with the windrow pattern. One will teach me how to run properly - will cost me some smoked BBQ ribs though :D .
In checking on parts I found one of the local agg shops keeps the basic parts on hand (belts and tines) Bearing are also available through a machine shop here per one of the gentleman. Evidently they are fairly popular around here.

I also got a lead on a very good JD 24T baler too.

Merry Christmas, and the Best for the New Year - Keith

I bought a 3 pt. Ford rake at a sale for $50 some time ago. I have never tried to use it. Previous owner had just installed sveral new bearings.
