Looks like I have to do my own digging . . . a call to the Chamber of Commerce in Raymond, MS got this info.
Magna American was last in Raymond, MS and was bought out by Modern Tool and Die (MTD) in the mid 1970's. There are a few old parts left but you have to contact MTD technical service about the obsolete parts. When they are gone, no more are being manufactured.
: Looking for parts for a Chore Master Tempo 500 Tiller of 1963 vintage manufactured by Magna American Corp, Cincinnati, OH and I think later of Raymond, MS. If Quality Fleet and Farm is a possibility I need a contact because they are not local to this part of Virginia. Anyone have a lead?
