when you buy replacement parts its best to check the box contents before leaving the store and if possible compare the box contents to the used parts you brought with you, as it tends to save lots of return trips to the auto parts store!
Ive been handed alternators that were totally different in design, or missing the belt pulley, Ive even been given obvious (core deposit used parts) in a new box, or the obviously wrong parts

I bought rear disc brake pads from NAPA for my 1996 corvette, and if youve ever seen those they are not huge



when I got home the pads I found in the box were similar to these, (easily twice the size) checking I found they were front brake caliper pads for a ford F350

So pads for an F350 won't fit into a car with a 350 engine? :rolling:

I had a 350 in my corvette, only just as long as it took me to build and install a 383, Ive been collecting parts on my BIG BLOCK engine to replace the 383 since the day I installed that!
