I'm a big fan of saving money. My wife calls me cheap. I've already posted about how to figure out drive belt sizes so you can buy industrial belts cheaper than OEM belts here: http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=199016 Yesterday, I needed to order a new starter for a Toro 325 Groundmaster. The price from Toro was $297.00. Wow! And he said that wasn't a current price, he'd have to check to see if it had gone up. These mowers use Ford engines so I got the engine number off of the engine block and called NAPA. After about 5 minutes on the phone, they were able to get the ford part number for the starter which they could cross reference to a NAPA number. They had 5 starters that would fit. Rebuilts starting at $61.00 and one new starter for $157. It turned out that all the rebuilts would take a couple of days to get in so I got the $157 motor the same day.
