Doing a full tune up - Which AC Delco parts do I need

Doing a full tune up - Which AC Delco parts do I need

Postby 96SafariAWD [OP] » April 3rd 2009, 3:59am

Hi All,
I am planning on doing a complete turn up on my van using AC Delco parts. I found some great websites to get the parts but when I look into such things as wires, cap and rotor, and even the fuel filter there are always two different ones listed, even though I chose only the V6 option. The odd thing is no matter what the part is numerous sites list one set for 1986-1989 and another for 1986-1994. My van is an 87 so I am very confused over here. The photos are of the actual part and I can tell by the photo of the cap and wires that both are definitely for the V6 van. Below is the website I found and like the best.

http://www.acdelco.com/index.jsp

Could anyone help shed some light on this. I would hate to order the wrong parts and all my local AC Delco distributors charge a high mark up.

Thanks in Advance!

Hi 96SafariAWD


Delco/Delphi plug wires here for the 85 V6 Z engine:
http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,carco ... ttype,7228

Delco/Delphi Caps here:
http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,carco ... ttype,7120

Delco/Delphi Rotor here:
http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,carco ... ttype,7136
EDITED> I gave the wrong link to the Rotors, sorry, Its corrected now.:)

Have a look at the "info" link that has a picture with each item you maybe interested in. Just match that picture with what you have in your vehicle at the moment if you feel there are differences.

If you're not interested in buying from rockauto, then just use the part numbers, They are the correct numbers for your year.
Hope this help.:)

Thanks for the information. It's odd because the photos appear to be the same part, just taken from a different angle. I really hate to order the wrong part but its looking like it may come down to a best guess. Thanks again!

Hi 96SafariAWD

Just have a look at what's on your vehicle now. If you can print the pictures of the 2 different rotors off on paper, then take that out to your van and match it up that way. One looks a bit thicker than the other but seems to have the same mounting point for both.
Please keep us updated, Thanks.:)
