Fast shipping, great prices, and great return policy. I have
an older car that needed some work and I found just about everything on RockAuto.
The prices are excellent and the parts arrive faster than
expected. Will definitely do business with again

Repair Mistakes & Blunders
Installing a new engine in a
Toyota MR2 wasn't going well. From underneath the car, I asked
my son who was helping at the time if something was hitting something
to keep the engine from dropping into place. He said no. In his
defense, he isn't very experienced in this sort of thing, try
as I might. I exerted enough force to really get it jammed and
then looked from above to find that the water pump pulley was
installed backwards and was in fact what was causing the problem.
Now the only way to get it off was to move the motor and unjam
it. So, I did the smart thing; went in the house and lived to
fight another day.
The next day I set about trying to get it unjammed.
It wouldn't budge until I stuck my right hand down to adjust
the motor mount. As soon as I did, without putting any more
pressure on the engine, it unjammed and dropped, pinning the
tip of my
right thumb between motor bracket and the motor mount. My garage
is free standing and is 30 feet from the house but I yelled
for help. No response. I had to reach up with my left hand and
the lift attached to the engine to lift it and free my
thumb. Emergency room was next. The nail had been torn from
the nail bed at the cuticle. Removed the nail and took seven
When I got home I went back out to the garage and reversed
the water pump pulley and got the engine mount bolts in before
local anesthetic wore off.
When I went into the house holding
my bloodied thumb I asked my daughter if she hadn't heard
me yelling for help. I am sad to say her response was - "Yes,
but I thought it was just the usual yelling."

|1966 Plymouth Barracuda FS
This is of my wife's 1966 Plymouth Barracuda FS that
she and I rebuilt from top to bottom. The
vehicle had been in storage for over 10 years and once we
got it home we dismantled it completely. During the year and
a half rebuild, as anyone who has experience restoring these
Mopars knows, we were faced many times with the challenge of
sourcing hard to find parts. But thanks to RockAuto's super inventory
caught without parts.
