Today I had a dealer tell they had three of the part I needed on hand, but they couldn’t sell it to me because they had sold two this year for locals “specifically one this month”. I’m only 2 hours away. Is this common?

It is common when another dealer asks for a transfer, it is uncommon when the customer calls and wants to buy the part themselves. Ask your dealer for a list of dealers that currently have that part and call them, someone will give it up. What’s you part number?

We had a radiator go on a jd9660 6or 7 years ago. Closest one was 12 hours away. My brother in law drove over night to be there for 8 am door opening and mentioned to parts man that it was the only one in western Canada. If we hadn't already paid for it he wasn't going to let us take it. Closest I've been to a part not being sold to me for being out of the service area. That sounds like probabaly one of the worst parts dealers. A sales a sale unless they can't source them right now.

Our 4940 sprayer had an aluminium boom valve crack and I needed to prove they were toast to get one since they were short supply

It’s a GH-481A main fan shaft for fan, motor and all on a flexicoil 2320 aircart. Splines stripped out where the motor slides in. We found one 7 hours away this morning and pioneer in rexburg gladly sold it to me. My local dealer told me where they were. New ones are Available just would be 3 days out of Saskatoon.

Slide hammer with a very small hook. Heat to release locktight expand shaft a fraction. A good bearing place can supply a new spline usually long enough to make two if you can remember where you put it. Lack of grease is the main problem. Done a couple for neighbours ours went 20 years without an issue.

We had an injector in our 9420 go this spring. Dealer didn’t have one in the dealer network. Called other outfits and they didn’t have one either. Went right to JD and they didn’t have one in North America. The only option was to pull one out of the 9860 or drive to edmonton and buy one from a questionable reman outfit.
We ended up pulling from the 9860 after determining the engine codes matched up.
The question remains. Did those dealers actually not have the injector in stock or were they hoarding them for the in house $175/hr shop repairs.

In Canada, dealers have to stock parts for products for 10 years after production stops. This is a provincial law in AB, SK, and I think MB. US does not have these types of laws in place I think. e.g. maybe Canadian dealers have the parts if it fits the time frame...

Have to wonder. Usually John Deere is really good about this stuff. I can still get injectors for a 50 year old John Deere tractor, which I did this summer.

Anyway, these are basically Detroit S60 engines. Wonder if there's a Detroit injector that would fit them.

I'm not sure that slapping that on the dealers desk would help the relationship much

Presumably manufacturers would need to stand behind their dealers' ability to support and maintain their products. I don't see this as any different than how manufacturers cover dealers doing warranty work. The difference is that parts within the 10 years are still paid for by customers, so it's not like we're asking manufacturers to warrant for free for 10 years.
