Need help finding part numbers

I did the service clinic a week ago with Bob Ripley and need some help finding part numbers so I get get my squawks fixed. I realize this is a lot of work, and I did try to find these on my own without much luck. I thought I would post here since it might help someone else in the future finding the same part numbers.

Also, other than spruce, if you have any good suggestions on places to buy these parts, I would appreciate it.

Mac, do yourself a favor and purchase a copy of your aircraft maintenance manual and illustrated parts list on www.texav.com

Even though a lot of us know these part numbers from memory, we are trained to look everything up every time to avoid “human factor” errors. As you observe, this can take a lot of time. As an owner, you can save yourself shop rate x hours by doing a lot of the “grunt” work. Bonus is you learn a lot about your airplane!

ABS service clinics and BPPP are still the best bargains in general aviation.

Your maintenance provider should have the parts catalog for your aircraft.
The parts catalogs are available online for free at:
https://ww2.txtav.com/TechnicalPublications/Downloads/IPCList
You will need to signup for an account which is also free.

Thanks guys.

I agree. So far, I've had much better luck hunting for my own parts and bringing them to be installled (or installed myself under an A&P).

Does such a parts manual exist for the engine as well?
