Finding Difficult-to-Find Auto Parts




Pages: 1 2

Anytime one is looking for any auto part, he or she has to keep in mind the exact type that is needed. Auto parts are interesting objects in themselves because the slightest difference in the auto parts that are purchased could make all the difference between a running car and a dying one. In addition, though, difficult-to-find auto parts makes repairs to the automobiles that we have all the more difficult. If you have purchased an after-market product that you liked so well, but need another, you may just be out of luck. It’s unfortunate that there are some difficult-to-find automobile parts, but there are some resources to check out if you’re having trouble finding the ones that you need.

Specialty Auto Parts Retail Stores

One option to go about finding the difficult-to-find auto parts that are needed is to go through a specialty company that sells only the specialty parts that you need. Unfortunately, there are not many of these auto parts stores that are available, but one that is a store like this is called NAPA. The NAPA Company is actually located in every one of the United States, and most of the time they can do a great job at finding the difficult auto parts that are needed. For example, if there is a certain driver’s side mirror that broke then they are the people to call in order to order another. They also have a whole host of other auto parts for passenger cars, trucks, as well as other automobiles.

Second-Hand Auto Parts

While it may not always be possible to get to a specialty auto parts store, and if NAPA does not carry the auto parts that are needed, another alternative is to buy second-hand auto parts that are difficult to find. For example, many people in the online community usually help each other out by giving their parts away and letting other individuals in on the secrets where to buy hard-to-find auto parts. These are very good communities to establish connections when it comes to issues relating to automobiles and it is also good if you are looking for difficult-to-find auto parts .

eBay and other Auction Sites

Another option that one may look towards in order to find the hard-to-locate auto parts that they need is eBay or other auction-type websites on the World Wide Internet. Many people and sellers are able to find these types of auto parts because they advertise that they are selling them as retail products. Granted, these types of auto parts may be a little more expensive than most, but the question then becomes how much is too much to spend on the auto parts that one is looking for.

    Jason,
    Check back at the site tomorrow for an update regarding the Advance Auto Parts store that is currently at the northeast corner of Atlanta Road and Spring Road. Two of the junk auto repair shops along Atlanta Road have been demolished and one remains next to the museum. I don't know for certain about the last remaining shop but it appears that it will be removed to make room for building A.

    Auto Salvage = Rescate / Salvataje de autos/ carros/ coches.

    Quality Used Auto Parts = Repuestos usados de calidad para autos/ carros/ coches

    In Spanish you have different words for 'car' depending on where you are from. So you can use 'auto', 'carro' or 'coche'.

    I've seen this before… it's was simply over-loaded. The weight in a trailer has to be evenly distributed, and if they put a very heavy object in the center, it will bend or break the frame, and this is the result. It doesn't take as much as you might think.
    The approximate capacity of that trailer is roughly 45,000 pounds. one 5-foot square basket of auto parts (transmission shaft castings, etc) can easily put 15,000 or 20,000 pounds in a small area, and *crunch*.
    Like the song says… “Whoops, there it is!'

    Agreed. Interesting about FRAM. I did a little research and it looks like FRAM has made filters in Israel and might still be doing so. People should check before they buy. But it's not just FRAM. I ran a search on “Auto parts made in Israel” and found some interesting things.

    Dave-No, sorry. It's not that I don't like Spike Jones… but that's not the reference.Anyway, the jays are loud, argue a lot, and have a lot of energy generally. So I named them after the Pep Boys – an auto parts store chain. The three Pep Boys were (are?) Manny, Moe, and Jack.But maybe the Pep Boys were named after the Spike Jones line. Stranger things have happened.

    Awesome. Liked (and favorited for that BNSF, I live in Tampa, and I haven't seen a BNSF unit here for years now. The last BNSF unit I saw was in Chattanooga, TN last year.) Also, at 6:35, anyone know where that auto parts boxcar came from, there arn't any auto plant in Florida are there? I didn't think so. Also, pretty cool gorilla graffiti at 7:07, although it's still vandalism. Some of those guys seriously need to get jobs in an art studio, instead of marking up people's property.

    What memories! Had a one (not turbo), it was such a great car! I remember it was geared so low that it would smoke anything from stoplight to stoplight, obviously not over any distance, but it was fun to see the looks of surprise on people's faces who driving a Mustang or other sports car when I was downtown. The folks at the Auto parts store were always a bit agitated when I'd come in, everything had to be special ordered and usually twice to get the right part. HEHE!

    — I would NOT try and get 130volts / 260 cells connected like you're thinking. You need to remember, solar pv is DC voltage. Get your voltage up to 12v by connecting your panels in series like he shows, then connect 12 volt sets in parallel to increase your amperage. Connect the final result to an inverter (at any auto parts store) to convert the output to AC voltage which will come out at 110/120v AC at whatever amperage is available.

    I can relate as far as the shopping idea goes. I always have ideas in my head for a new project, or improving something. When I go into an auto parts place, or a home improvement store, I'm constantly looking at random things and thinking of uses for them. One of Jamie's running themes is using tools in ways they weren't originally intended, and I tend to think along the same lines. Very cool behind the scenes of M5.
