    :wall -I have a exmark turf tracer that i got fairly cheap.( so I thought) Strait to the point it needs bearings in the wheel motors, no big deal.Well the small thrust bearing can't be matched up,how is it possible.I have talked to multiple suppliers in the area and they can't match it up.Can anyone help?
    -Ross Torqmotor ( PARKER) MF140925 AADD , changes to TE0230FS250 I believe ..thanks

    Probably going to have to get it from a Ross or Parker dealer.
    These engineers are really good at using parts nobody else is using.
    There is usually more damaged parts in the wheelmotor by the time you notice the bearings.

    Everything checked out,and we measured and remeasred to find the right one. No such luck. I have a Parker dealer working on a search now,but I was hoping someone would have another avenue for me to follow if this one fell threw. Thanks

    You're all over it with your third comment, Slapper. My experience as well.

    Dutch. I too ran on this goose chase awhile back.
    Short of knowing somebody that can manufacture the bearings to your specs,
    Which would ruin the purpose of finding the part on the cheap.
    It helps to just laugh and admit the the engineers earned their keep,by not allowing you to get
    Replacement parts from anyone but the OEM.
    Can anyone say. John Deere, Stihl, Kohler, etc.

    OEM or not ,just don't want to have to buy a wheel motor because of a stupid little bearing

    Call Exmark 1-402-223-6300 ask to speak to Paul Jurgens. He is the head of Exmark tech support. Tell him what you have and what you need. Be nice and respectful. It doesn't hurt to sound a little distraught and desperate. He is a good guy and always tries to help. Ask him if he has the bearings or a junked wheel motor that he could salvage the bearings from. If he doesn't ask for the number to Parker/Ross and give them a call. I have had good results as a dealer and distributor making special requests like this happen in the past.
