Joe...if you mean vintage OEM Honda parts....I've found David Silver to be more reasonable than most of the places in the US even after shipping over the ocean.

Joe,
Have you ever downloaded Silver's part number/price list....the one with thousands and thousands of odd ball vintage OEM parts?
It's always changing and I've found some really almost unobtainable parts in it for very reasonable prices.

ill have to go look. i have looked at alot of shit on that site. i dont like them because i have emailed them on occasion about parts and never gotten anything back. which is a little on the annoying side. on the other hand, they have shit no one else has. i always refer people to them.

try http://servicehonda.com/test/index.htm

you can do a remote login to their parts system, they explain how on the website...then you can look at pretty much any microfiche and see if the part is available and order it..

Yeah...Terry at western hills has been very helpful... he even tolerates a newbie like me, so i bet he'd like talking to folks who have some knowledge....

The great thing about Western is if they don't have something (like a '64 dream stator) they will happily give you the number of someone who does. THOSE are the real good contacts, people you would NEVER find on the websternet or even a phonebook! Just make sure you have your part #'s correct!

For me last years sleeper swap meet score was a microfische reader with fisches for every japanese brand all models 60's up to 85? This thing has saved my ass a zillion times.
