I ordered parts for a truck I am working on today. A clutch plate, pilot bearing, and throw out bearing. the same parts were used by GM from 1947 to 2004. No place in town had one in stock, not only that, none of the ware houses had one either, it was a 10 day manufacturers special order to get one. I ordered the parts on line, should be here wednesday.

Last time I went in for an oil filter for a Pontiac V8 the response was "they still make those?".

Gee .. I find it strange when Rock Auto sends me E-Mails to advise of "Close-Out Pricing" on the "obsolete" parts for the vehicles I have listed in their site... Rolling Eyes
All of those vehicles are my "Daily Drivers".. Shocked Shocked

Or during my recent "fender adventure" when the supplier told me to just scrap the damaged fender that arrived as they didn't need it back Question

Has anyone noticed that seal beam headlights are not as easy to find as they once were Question Confused Confused

BUT... In just a few more years & I can take my Astro Van to the Nats in K-Zoo Idea Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Laughing Laughing Cool

I sort'a wonder, in my deep state of cynicism, if some of those folks even know what a clutch is.

Rumbler just ask my wife , a clutch is a little purse with no strap, that should match your shoes .

Of course they do Rumbler, it comes with the A/C compressor thing ... Oh ..You will also need an accumulator , orifice tube & flush kits or there is no warranty ... You should replace the belt & cabin filter at the same time ....

What else do you need today Question

Seems to be location sensitive stuff.

Out here in rust free climate, more parts for old cars easy to buy. I bought many off shelf parts for my 1983 Monte Carlo. Same for the 1962 Falcon with 1978 Phord power train in it

Only time something was said was at ACE Hardware when I was there to get new keys cut for the 1983 car... the guy muttered a couple times about : that old of a car
