Several parts manufacturers and retailers provide product images online. Edelbrock.com offers online images of its entire line of products from air cleaners to water pumps. Most parts listed for sale on JCWhitney.com, CarParts.com and AutoZone.com include pictures.
Edelbrock.com’s online catalog consists of all the parts it manufactures including crate engines. Each product category provides item specifications, uses and high-quality photographs. For example, clicking on Gaskets pulls up an introduction of Edelbrock’s high performance gaskets. The Gasket Application Reference Guide tab lists specifications for its head, intake, exhaust and valve cover gaskets. Opening the Replacement Gaskets & Accessories tab provides information on other gaskets and sealants. Parts numbers on these tabs are hypertext links that pop up an image of that part.
JCWhitney.com, CarParts.com and AutoZone.com have extensive online parts catalogs with pictures. Each site allows the user to search by part name or parts specific to a vehicle’s year, make and model. A general search on JCWhitney.com and CarParts.com for brake pads results in the entire range of brake pads and accessories. AutoZone.com, however, divides search results by parts, accessories and, for registered users, related repair information. Shoppers can use the provided images to confirm that the replacement part matches the old part prior to ordering.
