I recall being in a JD dealership 20 years ago, wanted a spool and that funky double taper bearing for an old lettered JD disk, had the model and all. Had the old broken one with as well.
The parts kid was looking and looking in his screen and parts books, boy he couldnít even find the disk, no such bearing around or maybe even ever made. He could find a spool, but it would have to be ordered from the moon I guess, was t anything around in this entire state.
An older fella from the shop walked by doing something else, he looked at the counter, looked at me, looked at the counter where my broken spool and bearing was, backed up 3 feet, reached around the corner of the parts shelves and grabbed a bearing put it on the counter. He took the p-willow flowers out of the spool (being used for a vase) that was on the counter in front of the kid, set it next to the new bearing, and continued on his way.
I didnít say nothing. Just waited for the kid to track down the numbers and wrote out my check.
