Source for MTD obsolete parts?

Anyone have a source for MTD obsolete parts? I have here a SnowChief SC8250F snowblower that needs wheel bushings.
The part number is 707828. I called MTD and the part was discontinued in 2004.
Thanks.

if you can determine the ID and OD your local hardware store may have some bronze bushings that would work. you might have to cut them for length.

Bearing

Is the bearing a hex outer 7/8" on the flats and 3/4" ID? If so there are after market parts Stens 225-763, Rotary 8783, Laser 95471 the Stens & Rotary parts are oil impregnated iron the laser part is bronze

Thanks AJ. The 8783 is a perfect fit. Rotary should list that as fitting this MTD also. They would get more sales if they did.
