That is going to be a problem with any older drill that you may buy that parts are still available for. They just are not worth a lot of money even in very good condition
and it does not take many parts bought to exceed the value of the drill.

You are one of the few people left still using fertilizer in a drill. Almost everyone else uses a buggy or has a coop spread their fertilizer. I have a Deere 8200 or 8300 not sure which that Dad bought new in 1989. It has planted lots of acres and has never had a single part put on it. It is getting close to needing a set of discs. My original drill was a FBB that the fertilizer was junk in and we just used it for grain and grass with no problems. The IH 510 was a very good drill and well liked by it's owners. But with time the fertilizer is going to eat up any drill. Maybe look for another 510 with good fertilizer parts and keep yours for a parts machine. Tom

Mine has had the fertilizer box deleted and combined with the grain box. Makes for a lot of acres between fill ups. Don't have a close up of box mods, but pretty simple to do. I don't like using the front grass seed box on it as seed does not flow well through the long tubes to get seed out the back, but it works great for straight grain. Its a 21 run so makes short work of sewing grain.

hers the stand of oats that I got from it.

New end wheel drills 12-13 feet working width are between 15-20 thousand dollars depending on the features ordered. I'm rebuilding an 8300 as I find parts at the bone yard for it. The only way to come out on it financially. I narrowly missed a donor drill for disk openers but I had not received my crop insurance check when it came up at auction. Not a big deal that the 8300 is not ready to roll as the 450 drill is here and the 8300 is a holdover from dad's day but I don't want to let it go as I planted thousands of acres with it over the years. That aside they just do not bring that much money especially if they lack double disk openers and press wheels like this one does.

The flexible rubber grain tubes for those things are around $25 each. Ridiculous. I have a #10 that has 17 of them on it. If I was to put the whole drill up for sale I'd be lucky to get $300 for it.

I was able to find some donor drills to rebuild the press wheels on my lz1010 hoe drills got lucky doesn?t look like the press wheels ever went one mile down a paved road in the last fifty years until I got them . Also found a couple sets of press wheels for my ll147 disc opener drills . These old drills will do as nice a job as a new one if not better and I?m in both double drills less than 2000.00$ I plant all kinds of grass seed mixes and alfalfa as well as wheat and barley with them
