I have no trouble getting parts at Oreilly's. I look up the part I need and take it to the store. Tell the kid I want this number. He gets it, I double check the part and out the door I go. But of course he should get half pay since I did half his job for him.......

Ours wouldn't be able to find it if you told them where on the shelf it was, and lead them by the hand to it.....

We have 2 NAPA's, Fisher Auto, and an Advanced Auto store in this area. Both NAPA stores in the area go out of their way to supply agricultural parts. They are pretty good with older stuff, too. The Fisher Auto chain doesn't do as much with farm stuff but the guys will go out of their way to try to match something up. Even if they are stumped, they will still try to help you out. That includes sending you to NAPA if they can't help out. In our area, the Advanced Auto guys are the last choice and to be avoided at all costs. The Ad A folks are good enough people, but they are young and inexperianced. They wouldn't know a what a 4020 or a "Corn Binder" was it it bit em on the southern exposure.

I'm loving this thread! I worked at AZ for several years. I'm just a shade tree mechanic. Did a few engine rebuilds but mostly parts swaps, that kind of thing. On a scale of one to ten, on a good day I'd consider my self a six knowledge wise.

Sad to say but I was probably one of the most knowledgeable guys there. They would hire most anybody who claimed to have at least changed a spark plug or two. The computer was our life line. They kept staffing to a minimum at all times so taking time with catalogs was frowned upon. Just blow the customer off and move on to the next customer in line.

Pretty sad way to run a business if you ask me.
