Non-Chinese Tune Up Components??

Do any you fine gentlemen or ladies know where one can obtain quality timing and tune up components? The last few things I have bought at NAPA feel about as quality as a $5 toaster.

I am going to endeavor to get my '61 aka 'Gertrude' up to snuff this spring and summer but I want quality parts. I will need a cap and rotor, plug wires, plugs, oil bath filter, air filter, etc...

Thanks!

Kyle

Sometimes you can find NOS on evil bay. Just do a search.šŸ›

Thanks I will do that. I was hoping maybe someone knew a place where quality components could be sourced.

NAPA handles more than one brand/quality for a part. If you haven't already, you might talk to them about it. Might have to order it in but they might have access to what you want. I've done that for points and cap before.

Try Rockauto.com : 1961 Chevrolet C10/3100 truck with 235 engine

But, how will you determine where a part was made?

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engines are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler. [chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com]

I guess I was using 'China' as a general term. I understand that many components will be of foreign manufacture. I just want to buy good parts, so many parts I see now are half the strength of what I am replacing.

As DennisM said, NAPA has a "Premium" brand that you can ask for at the counter. Explain your desire to have an American Made product and see if they can help.šŸ›
