Grasshopper Parts

I have run into a little problem with my 721. The other day while mowing a hill, the deck and tractor &quot;v'ed&quot;, causing the driveshaft to seperate and and spin out of control. I could have just put it back together. Well being the idiot I am I take the deck off and notice some parts that need replacing and go to tearing it apart. Both ends of the telescoping portion of the shaft need to be replaced. I put new belts on the pto and decide I probably should put in new pillowblock bearings on the power shaft. Upon pulling the powershaft out, I break the pto pulley, it doesn't want to come off the power shaft. Also I notice one of the rockers and pivots on the traction kit is locked up. It ain't coming off either. Soaked it in PB Blaster for 24 hours. Beating on it will bend the rocker or smash the pivot.<p>If any of you know a dealer with decent pricing in Florida, Georgia or Alabama, let me know. These are two of the reasons I switched away from Grasshopper (dealers suck and pricing on the parts is so high for wearable parts) The tail wheel pivot bar also needs bearings. It appears to be a pressed in bronze bushing. The parts manual shows it as two bushings. Anybody know about that? Thanks<p><br>

TPC, are they fairly &quot;stable&quot; in their pricing. Alot of dealers I have dealt with tend to fluctuate. They give you a decent price one time, the next time they see ya coming and hammer you.
