    ...does anybody know of an online place to get factory GM part numbers?

    Not all of us want parts NOT made by GM. Or some things are not available thru others except for GM.

    So, does anybody know of an online GM site? I know about Performance Parts site, but that's different.

    Are you wanting body parts or mech. parts Wes?? If you want body parts, try to find a body shop that will give up an old crash book. The #'s in them may be obsolete for our rigs, but it will give them a # to cross reference at the dealer.

    I have a crash book for our rigs if I can help to find some thing P/M me. I will have to find the book tho. I havent seen it in a while but I think I know where it is.

    If ya can't stop.......Smile as you go under! [​IMG]

    I have the 'crash book' too.

    I am wanting the 'mechanical book', the one with all the drivetrain part numbers, frame component numbers, springs, plates, etc. Everything but the body.

    Basically the books like they have at the GM dealership. Those big binder books with ALL the numbers you could ever think of for ANY parts you want.

    [​IMG] LMAO!!!

    How'd you guess?! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Nah, just want a site or catalog so I can get my numbers ready for ordering parts.

    And the fact when you talk to the parts man behind the counter, 90% of the time he looks at you like, "what the hell are you talking about?"!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I got what you need, Wes! I purchased a set of old GM catalogs ("1973-1978 Truck Illustration Catalog" and "1973-1978 Truck Parts Catalog") from <a target="_blank" href=http://www.ebaystores.com/faxonautoliterature>Faxon Auto Literature</a>. The link is to their Ebay store, but I just called their phone number to get my stuff. Their search engine on Ebay is pretty weak. The phone staff was very helpful. I actually ordered more than the two items listed above, but I imagine that this is what you are after. I paid $189 for the set, about 2 years ago. They set their prices based on condition of the manuals. I was given a choice of good condition (the $189 version I bought) or a more beat-up version for about $100.

    These catalogs have been a huge resource for my buildup. The illustrations have been especially helpful.
