Now there is a loaded question. Nah not that bad.

"agcoparts.com" Anything in the AGCO line up.

If you contact your local Agco dealer they can get you a login to the Agco parts site and you will be able order anything you wish. It will come to your local dealer that signed you up and be there for pickup. You can cruise the site as a "Guest" anytime, Just can not order anything.

JD has a simuliar thing and you sign up and select your local JD dealer where the parts will be delivered. You will get an email to confirm your sign in and away you go. Anything you put into your pick list to check pricing will be forwarded to your dealer so you may get a call to help you order.

I think it was a briggs and stratton program but he said you can only get it if you're a registered dealer :p

If you know the engine model #, both Partstree and Sears have decent parts lookup info... Maybe not dealer software quality, but decent. Once you have the part #, you can order from them or do a little comparison shopping.

Dealer have a "LogOn" to the dealer web site and allows them to see stuff we can not without a user name and password from that MFG.
Years ago we would have parts and service Fiche, and hard copy manuals from the MFG. This is quite costly and today most dealers will have access to the cooperate web site and have the most current information at their finger tips.

Hope this explains what is going on in the industry.

Other then the ones that have been mentioned already you pretty much have to be a dealer to either get the software or gain access to the dealer side of the parts lookup.

My local repair / parts guy uses partstree. He may have access to things that I don't, but as long as you have a model and serial number it shouldn't be a problem.

From what I can tell the part house in town just goes out on the net and looks up the parts. From time to time Jamie spins the monitor around so I can verify that she had the correct part and it doesn't look much different then eReplacement or Partstree. I know when I need to figure up what how much a repair will cost I just go on line and get the cost and then order it through the parts house. Jamie is usually right on target or a dollar or two cheaper. I think the day of locally installed parts software is pretty much gone.
