I put A&I elbow, vertical and horizontal augers, vertical tube and inner horizontal tube on our new to us 1660 before we ran it fall before last. The only issue I had was the bolt holes not quite lining up on the brace of the verticle tube and a few holes on the horizontal tube. I have had pretty good luck with the aftermarket parts from Sloan Express and Shoup. In some cases the parts last better than OEM, I have especially found this to be the case with blades and bearings for our White planter. The one thing to watch for on the elbow is as long as it's greased properly and the truss rod is properly adjusted I doubt that you will wear out the pivot before the elbow gets thin from grain wear unless you only harvest low yielding crops (no corn). The one I took off the 1660 was so thin it had rippled on the back side from the auger being left out. We had changed the elbow on the old 1460 one time as it had worn through the weld in the corner of the elbow and was leaking. While it's all apart I would scatter the gearbox, replace the bearings at least and go through the bottom gear set as well. New bearings on the bottom could save you from the bearing going out on the bottom of the vertical auger and breaking that casting while stripping the gears... Don't ask me why I know that.
