    went on google and found a whole bunch of used auto parts sites that you send a request of the parts you need and they will track them down for you . just wondering if anyone had any luck with these?

    Used Parts

    I really don't like to buy any used parts unless I can inspect them first. Just a picture on a website isn't enough for me. There's plenty of wrecking yards in S Phoenix near Manzanita Raceway you can go and scavenge around in, in fact there's one that specializes in 4X4 parts on 35th ave and Broadway, and another on 35th a little closer to the freeway. Put on your crusty duds one Saturday and just hit the wrecking yards, you'll find all kinds of cool stuff.

    great luck the only time i used it....

    found a 203 to 465 adaptor for 80 dollars. place was in oregon, but i dont remember the name. they guy was VERY helpfull. he was worried about the dished out portion that allows oil to get into the bearing. he thought it wasnt supposed to be there. sent me a few pictures then shipped it off after i said sold.

    I bought a 95 3.4 V6 this way. $550 shipped from Michigan to Colorado. I'm still driving that motor, runs great. My biggest problem was deciding which vendor to buy from, I got at least a dozen replies.
