Where can I find a Interchange manual for Automotive Body Parts. Something similar to Hollander's Book. I'd like to find it for free, but they may not be possible. Hollander wants $ 378.85 for theirs. Help me find a way to find what I'm looking for.

Re: Automotive Parts Exchange
Contact a local body fender wholesaler and see what they say. they may be able to tell you if it will fit (with or without any major reconstruction). or search an online forum to find your answer, some of these guys may have already tried or done what you're looking to do.

This depends on which part. Salvage yards have sets of books called Hollander Interchange Manuals that cost big bucks, but give all the info you seek. See if you can find a friend with access to a set, or beg info on individual parts from a salvage yard that might just have what you need.
I've found that the easiest way to determine it is to use Car-Part.com
Type in the info and do a search. If you check the left hand column it will indicate the hear and type of vehicle.
The recycling yards use Hollander or Pinnacle to do an interchange. Then the more organized yards will inventory their parts. The inventoried parts reflect the interchange that was advised by Hollander and Pinnacle.
I've found that www.rockauto.com is an invaluable source for searching for compatible parts. You search by make, year and model, and each part has a link to a list of all other models that part is used on. Prices are pretty good too!.
the 2 wd and 4wd transmissions are not interchangeable. 95 - 2000 should be the same, 89 - 94 should be the same. check for an ID number on the trans pan, the newer ones should be 4L60E, the older ones could be 4L60 or 200R4. good luck!
Try a auto recycling yard and ask for the rack, power steering lines, pump, and accessory bracket. Some yards also install which can save you from looking for extra parts. The recycler should have a parts interchange manual to know what years and models interchange.
if you call a salvage yard they have a interchange manual called a hollander book and it will tell you every thing you need to know even if its a close match and just have to change a few items. good luck paul
