Anyone know of a cheaper place to get parts to rebuild a Ross steering gear other than Deere? I'll need a seal, bearing kit, and a follower pin. I can get them from Deere but am curious if there are alternatives.

If they are standard type seals and bearings (which they probably are), you can take them to a local bearing supply house such as the ones listed below, and have them matched up. There are some others out there and I've seen them listed here in other threads, but I can't remember them at the moment.

Applied Industrial Technologies

Erie Bearings

The second link is a regional Pennsylvania company, but the first is a nationwide chain. You can check to see if there's a location near you by clicking on the "company info" tab on the website and then scroll down to where it says locations.
I've always had better luck taking the parts in for the counter guys to look at and measure. They know what they're looking at as far as what type of bearing it is and what dimensions are pertinent etc... Hope that this helps.

Have you priced them at Deere. Some parts are way high and others are reasonable. For me it is just easier for me to get parts from JD. I order them on line from the JDparts site and pick them up at the dealer. 3-4 business days and I have them.

Done that. Just hoping to save a few bucks if there is another supplier.
