I have a 1996 John Deere 320 Lawn and Garden Tractor and found it at an estate sale. It was in great shape and kept in a garage/barn but would not run. I was able to rebuild the carburator and clean/update the fuel line and got it running very quickly. Its a strong running and great garden tractor.
The only problem is that the brakes are wore out and I am having a heck of a time finding the brake shoe replacements. I have found the drum and other parts but the shoes are like unicorns.
I have contacted our local John Deere parts dealer and he said they were obsolete and I would have to get after market or used ones.
And I am still having a heck of a time finding them.
Does anyone know of a great source for this type of part? Many of the online JD Parts sites skip that particular part or they list the part but there is no way to purchase or add to cart.
Would appreciate a point in the right direction.
