I just cruise Craigslist and Kijiji and stuff for local deals. Usually, it's entire tractors, not parts- so you check it out- and if it has a good tranny- bam! Occasionally, you'll find a parts seller locally. I have a couple good contacts for parts now, that I got from chasing ads.

I actually don't have that many trans-axles.  I usually get them in junk mowers that have other problems, but good trannys.
