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.

    wow no lie i just ordered my drive side axle assembly for pickup at advance auto parts and the other is being shipped to my house within the end of the week.. that shit got me worried that someone would drive a car like that. The PGT's are amazingly built starting with the engine and their parts i can't believe that the car would still be driveable after seeing the wheel that loose.

    Thanks Q234 isn't normally dedicated auto parts, it just happened to be this day. It's normally a mixture of auto parts, truck frames, and a long string of loaded auto racks. The auto racks get set off in Toledo before the auto parts and frames get taken to Detroit. For some reason, they didn't have the frames or racks yesterday. Today the train wasn't much either: 16 auto parts boxes and 6 flats of frames. I don't know where the racks have disappeared to.

    I was thinking about getting this road system, but after seeing this, I am not. Thanks for posting it. It's not what I was expecting. If you have a bunch of those pin holes on your roads, I recommend going to a NAPA auto parts and buying a tube of “Nitro-Stan” spot filler, and a 3M rubber squeegee(in the autobody section) It's a laquer based spot filler designed for filling pinholes in bodyfiller. I think “Bondo” makes a spot filler also. It's pretty easy to apply, let it dry, then sand.

    I agree, DD was almost unheard of before the mid '70s. The idler is probably hardened up some; you can sand the surface and use some rubber conditioner, but I don't know where they sell it; I'd try an auto parts store first. The changer cam is probably gummed up; tubeie07 has a great vid on re-lubing it. If you search for “BSR repair” you'll find it.

    Carolyn Chute's novels are American treasures. Her first, “The Beans of Egypt, Maine,” is the most famous, partly because they made it into a movie. I liked her second novel, “Letourneau's Used Auto Parts” much better and her massive “Merry Men” is a masterpiece. Great novelists write about real issues and the core of our lives. This does not necessarily make for the level of fame and financial success enjoyed by novelists who are essentially in the entertainment business.
