Needing older deere parts

We have a jd 1250 tractor at the farm that is pushing 35 yrs now and has a stupid gasket in the steerinng column that needs to be replaced. Deere/yanmar no longer services parts for it per my dealer. Been looking in the interweb but I don't know where to start. guidance? 🚜

Had no luck till I found
http://www.wengers.com/
They didn't have the rings I needed (ordered from 2 other places who "had" them then didn't) but had the whole steering column for 500$ which is a lot more than the 25$ for the rings but I was at the point I would have to scrap the tractor.

Try James River in Asheboro. They have a sister dealership group in Colorado and between the 2 organizations have a large reach.

i went there first. the tractor is out of the 80s and I guess deere (understandable) has written them off.
