Have not seen anyone express a opinion as to value or direct you to parts.

The parts depends on what you are looking for. There are a number of tractor salvage yards which is the best source for sheet metal and possible hardware such as transmission, engines and that type of thing.

Ignition and fuel parts, most on here would recommend Just8N's out of Shelby, NC I've had good service from Grand Valley Tractor of Orwell, Ohio.

Go to Links in the red banner at top and you will find contact information for both of these and several others.

I keep hearing the value of these older tractors has been dropping.

I can tell you I gave $3500 for my 860 in 2003. It had been used and abused and I'm pretty sure it had been reconstructed from parts. Indication was a tree had fallen on it. It has given me good service and the most major thing I've had to do was replace the cam follower pin in the hydraulics. No idea of the value today. I may have given too much but my brother and I had driven to western Kentucky to buy it so I did. Someone had also painted it Blue and gray which I changed back to the proper colors.

Good Luck with your toy!
