    I have some never used GM parts that I just dug up in the garage. A couple of sets of valve covers have me stumped ... I cant remember what motor I bought them for /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif The GM boxes they are in still have the catalog # and part # they were ordered from but when I put them in on GMparts directs website it says it cant find them...grrrrr

    Yeah--the same applies to the parts counter at most GM dealers too--the guys at the parts counter usually laugh so hard at me when I ask for parts for a 79 C10 or an 82 K20,that their coffee comes out of their nostrils! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gifThey tell me I've been out of the loop too long,and to junk theese old heaps and move up to the 21'st century!.I will admit after driving a 2004 GMC Duramax diesel crew cab dually for a friend to deliver it to a customer,I was amazed--here is a 1 ton truck that can carry everything your family can put in it,tow a 32ft fifth wheel camper like it was empty(at 100 mph if you wanted it too! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif)and get almost 20mpg doing it,all while riding in caddiliac comfort,while the CD player soother your road raged nerves- /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.giftoo bad all this luxury only costs 38,598+ bucks! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    2004 GMC Duramax diesel crew cab dually that only costs 38,598+. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Man you had better jump on that one. Seriously, though, around here I've yet to see one that went for less than 56K. I've been racking my brain on how to get a new diesel but I just can't see myself paying $700+ a month for a pickup. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    It might have said 58,598--I didnt have my reading glasses on--or maybe that was just the "options"list for the Allison tranny,and CD stereo and heated seats and everything- /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif-all I know is I was sweating bullets praying no one hit me in it while I was driving it--had 2 real close calls with boobs on cell phones cutting me off on the highway- /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif--seems like people can tell when your in someone elses vehicle!.I cant really see paying 700 a month for a truck that would sit in a parking lot at least 8 hours a day while you bust your butt paying for it,never mind the insurance,and worrying about it being stolen or vandalized.I think I'll keep my old junks,and live a better life with the money I'll save--or buy a place to live for that kind of money!. /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif:p

    Those look to be a tall cover that will work on most SBC's from 85 and older....

    I called the gm parts counter and they said their were only 2 styles for the old covers but they would have to see them in person....maybe i'll have to bring them in to have them identified
