I'd like to replace the seat cushion with an OEM replacement. I found an OEM one on ebay for $114 shipped but it says for SN# 070000 and under and my machine is a #070259...though they look the same.

I looked around at a couple sites and seemed to get conflicting part numbers so if anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it. The JD dealer is not right around the corner for me where I live.

Most of the time the difference in the numbers are the decal.Below 07000 is the "Landing Deere" and above is the "Leaping Deere".I found this out with the hood I ordered for my 345.The front decal was different with the serial break.

But I’m only looking for the cushion not the whole seat assembly. The cushion has four mounting inserts on the bottom and two on the back section. I’m going to need to call the dealership and see if they can help I guess.

Yeah you can buy just the cushion. The price difference is considerable between the cushion and the whole assembly. The aftermarket ones also seem to require some modification for the seat safety switch from what I can tell. The price difference between an aftermarket cushion and an OEM one is not much.

I build 90's VWs also, and have learned that 9 times out of 10 OEM is always the way to go.
