    hello everyone. I'm a new member and have a problem. we bought a adt a auction knowing it would need a little tlc. well after fixing some air leaks a faulty compresser and brakes we found the main gear in the planetary has some teeth missing and needs replaced. wondering if anyone knows of a good salvage yard for artic parts. thanks for any help.

    For good used parts I reccoment Alt-Source in Florida. They ship anywhere and have always treated me right.

    For gears you can also try centranz for geats and such. If they do not have it they can make it for you.

    Hope this helps

    thanks for the help. we ended up going with a company in south carolina. the guys there were great and the prices were even better. we bought a door for 200 that volvo wanted 2500. construction equipment parts is the company and would recomend them to anyone

    as to why were repairing instead of buying. 250,000 for a new truck or 20,000 at auction and 7,000 in parts and labor. we'll go for the cheaper one
