 John Deere 950 Tractor

I have the above tractor. the machine was made by Yanmar for John Deere. It is equipped with a three cylinder Yanmar diesel engine.
My question is where does one get parts for the engine.

My local JD distributor says the engine is obsolete and suggested I try Yanmar web sites.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Do you have a complete engine ready for installation for a JD950?

Until it becomes an "antique," a properly maintained tractor is designed to keep going decade after decade. You could write to JD head office that unless they support you, you will see a lawyer who specializes in consumer affairs and class actions. The least you require is for them to contact all their dealers in North America asking who has a 950 that they are parting out.

A legal threat probably won't help and could well lessen any help they might offer. For cars the legal support period is something like 7 years. I doubt that farm equipment has to be supported any longer than that.

If the present support is zero, how do you see it becoming lower?

Tillers differ from toasters and tractors differ from cars. Would you buy a new ag tractor knowing that its design life, according to manufacturer support policies, was seven years?

This post is over a year old (May 2006) and we have not heard from him since.

Rebuilt tractor engines are available from aftermarket suppliers.

Try Bootheel Tractor Parts.

You'll need the engine casting number and engine model number.

Most engines for compact tractors sell for about 3000 dollars. Large engines go for around $10,000.

The fastest way to get NON-support is to say "Hi, if you don't help me I will sue you". In most businesses where there is no legal obligation that sort of behavior is the fastest way to get ignored. It is not clear that the original poster got no support. He said his JD distributor (which I read as "dealer" ) said the engine is obsolete. He didn't say he contacted JD directly asking for help. He didn't say anyone did a parts search for what he needed. Many dealers wouldn't spend two seconds helping someone in that situation and others would bend over backwards for you. I'm sure a good dealer would help find a solution - unless someone went in with an attitude and threats to file legal action.

And to answer your question, No, I wouldn't expect a company to maintain a parts stock for decades (although it would be nice). However, JD does a better job than most in that regard.

I agree, in response to your sensible comments, that threat of legal action should be a last resort.

What does "TP" stand for?
