My 1962 ride-a-matic is missing the hitch. It looks like some of the parts can be made but the cast part would be a big challenge.
I noticed this on the US auction site http://www.ebay.co.u...=STRK:MEBIDX:IT and contacted the seller for a shipping quote to the UK. Unfortunately many people are nervous about shipping to the UK and unwilling to use the global shipping programme. In this case the seller has quoted me a very high shipping cost presumably to cover his perceived risks.
In the past I have had parts shipped to a Bolens buddy in VW and he has shipped them overseas to me, but that is not an option at the moment.
My question is, how rare are these parts and should I just swallow the high cost or keep looking?
