OT, I use parts from salvage yards when I can too. I'm pretty lucky when it comes to farm equip. parts, because my neighbor,2 miles away, runs a salvage yard.Way too handy when you need something FAST!!
Can't complain about my Dodge truck,though. It's my own fault the rotors are screwed.Should have changed the pads long ago. It's got 250,000 km. on it(about 155,000 miles) and it's been a tough truck.
Still like my '76 Ford 1 ton the best!!!
