    Is there a resource online somewhere that will give you the OEM part numbers for any part you're looking for? This way I can look to see if aftermarket parts from other companies are replacing the proper part you're looking for.

    No online source I know of, but the GM parts manuals are great for getting OEM numbers.

    Are these only available used as hard copies through places like eBay or are digital versions offered as well?

    Yes, got mine from the garbage can in the GM Parts Office in the early 80's.

    There is a digital version of the 1981 Chevy parts manual available somewhere online, but I don't know where. It isn't as useful as it should be as it would show only the parts numbers that were available in 1981. It covers Chevy years up to 1975, and by 1981, many part numbers had changed from what they originally were.
    And, having a digital version is a lot like looking through the paper manual but viewing it through a keyhole. The right way to go is the paper version. It is far easier to use and find the information you need. It costs money, but it is worth if if you are serious about finding those old part numbers.

    You might be able to find something here.

    PM me if you need some part numbers and I'll snap a pic as long as it doesn't get out of hand.
