The Case IH dealer in my town doubles as the MF dealer. The parts guys go back before the original CIH dealership closed where the parts man knew all the numbers and customers without the parts book. I give the MF guys credit that they do try hard to find parts for the old tractors I have (A 200 Farmall and a Model 50 MF). They do know the MF stuff well but are a little lacking in the Farmall department but nevertheless friendly. I think it is a personality problem and though it may be worse it did not start recently. My grandfather decided at some point in the late 30's or early 40's to buy a tractor for the 200 acre farm he had just bought. He first went to the JD dealership planning to buy with cash in hand a new tractor, plow, harrow, planters, and cultivators as well as listers. After waiting around for more than an hour to talk to a salesman he left and drove to the local Avery dealership and made his purchase in less than an hour just before lunch. The new tractor and equipment were delivered that afternoon. Of course they ended up not liking the Avery but never went back to the JD people. My dad and uncle both were loyal to Farmall except dad did mix in a couple of Fords and one used JD corn combine. Otherwise we have never owned a John Deere tractor and it can be traced back to that bad experience my grandfather had. My sister and I who manage dads farm now recently bought some fencing material from the JD dealership and the sales people were more than helpful.
