Shop Makes Old Farm Equipment Parts
If you are having trouble finding parts for older farm equipment, Daniel Yoder of Westby, Wis., might be able to help you at his Countryside Repair business.
  “Most of the replacement parts we make are for cast iron parts. Our parts are machined steel parts, and we try to make them as close to the original as we can with what we have to work with,” Yoder says, adding that his business has a catalog of part patterns they’ve made in the past.
  “If someone has a part that we don’t have a pattern for, they bring or send the complete part (or the pieces) and we try to make a part that will work for them,” he says.
  Yoder also rebuilds teeth on gears and sprockets and carries weld-on replacement blanks for 2060 and 2050 roller chains and sprockets, link chain for hay loaders and manure spreaders, and some gears for binders and planters.
  Prices vary depending on the part, and Yoder sells wholesale and retail. For example, a pinion gear on a Deere 999 corn planter retails for $40. A drive and idler sprocket for a Deere spreader retails for $38.
  Countryside Repair makes parts for most models of older equipment including Deere, Allis Chalmers, Minneapolis Moline, Case and International/Case.
  “We also have the old-type pin roller bearings. Customers can send us the outer diameter and inner diameter and length and we can make any size bearings they need,” Yoder says.
  He carries bronze bushings and bearings and makes stub shafts to bolt on the flywheel of stationary engines.
  In addition to parts, Yoder sells small and large-sized shoe sole scrapers made with poly bristle brushes. Prices run between $14 and $60 including shipping.
  For more information, write Yoder and include a phone number so he can contact you.
