Parts Indentification Manuals question

I can't find a nice source online for parts Identification (using the casting numbers and such), and have been told that a book called Motors does a great job. They list the number, and the years the part goes to. ANyone have any recommendations on what to get? Red, blue, is there a book that covers a decade or more worth instead of every 4-6 years or so. All I know is what I"ve seen on eBay.

I'd be looking to identify a bunch of carbs from all sorts of years, various parts from cars in the 80-90s, and parts from the 40-50s right now. Since there aren't any places online that I've seen with libraries of this info, I'm hoping to invest in the right books wisely. Gotta start my collection somewhere

Online Information & Manuals for Pre & Post War Chevrolets

Recently due to some problems with one of my old servers and others about to expire, I have moved all the Online Manuals to a new location. thanks to Rusty of the The Old Car Manual Project for providing the web space.

This move so far took over two months to complete, relinking over 18,000 files including 2700 + pages (approximately 440+ mb). All of this information is now on one server. With this move, some sites have been combined to make it easier to look some info up. E.g. 1946 - 1954 Chevrolet Passenger Car Model Charts.

A new additon are 195 pages from the Rochester Parts & Service Bulletins Catalog prior to 1960.

I am sure there will be a few glitches, so please let me know through the site with the problem and I'll fix them when I can. In the meantime, I am searching for new material to put online.

Below is a partial listing of the manuals and info online so far.

Take Care,
Keith Hardy
