Back in the '70s I learned if you took the Cadillac part number to a Chevrolet dealer you'd get the right part and it was considerably cheaper if it was found attached to a Chevy !!

On my JD's I look the part up on JD's site and then google the heck out of it as it usually is less expensive when you "let your fingers do the walking".

JD part site: John Deere - Parts Catalog

Same with SearsPartsDirect, love the wide variety of diagrams, makes, models of stuff from lawn edgers to toasters but it's at the bottom of my buy it from them list due to the crazy prices and I still remember when you could order it and not pay a shipping fee.
BUT it's first rate for finding the part number and then using that to search for availability and price elsewhere. Once in a while they surprise me and the price is good but it's rare.

Swapping Engines

Does anyone know if I can take an engine off of a John Deere TRS 27 snowblower and put it on a John Deer 828D snowblower? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
