I work at an independent NAPA parts store. Today, we started using a new catalog system. I checked and we can now look up parts for my 1921 T. We cant get a lot of parts, but we can look them up. The old system only went back to the early 50s.
What kind of parts can we get Tommy ?
Bendix springs I got 2 one for a backup!
I like my local Napa....mom and pop owned
I bought 6v tailight bulbs for 26 RPU at the local hardware last week. The ones at carquest were to long. Never know what you will find.
I'll have to look just for curiosity. We use Napa Prolink for our shop. It's basically what our local Napa's here use to look up their parts.
Without looking it up, Rock Auto can get you fan belts and spark plugs and I think a couple other items. I would imagine NAPA can get at least that much in.
For the few parts you can get at NAPA I suggest you support your local Model T parts dealer. This hobby is blessed with several good parts dealers. You should appreciate and support them or they will go away. Then what will you have?
Just being Bob on the last post. I am a firm believer of supporting ALL the T vendors and sometimes spend a little more to spread the orders around to keep all in business. A little competition is good for all.
On the other hand, with my WWII jeep, it is nice to go to a document with all the NAPA part numbers for items such as bulbs, belts, hoses, gaskets, filters, etc. Sometimes you just need it quicker than better.
How about head gaskets? I worked at Advance for a while and once you could find a part number they could order one without a problem for our model A. If memory serves the model A gasket part number is 7013C
Thats right Glenn ! Nice words, and they concentrade on the parts for our cars and ...depend on us !!!
