Default Honda OEM Parts Catalogs for Sale

I have some OEM microfiche parts catalogs for sale for Honda. These
are the same fiche cards that the dealer parts department uses. Covers
the complete car, and has illustrations and OEM part numbers.

Drop me a line with your year and model and I'll let you know if I
have one for your particular vehicle.

Thanks.

Considering that Acura and Honda dealers have been using a computerized
parts catalog for more than a dozen years, I suspect your "fiches" are
creakily ancient and completely useless.

Tegger:

As I replied in the other forum post, your theory doesn't do a car
owner/DIY person much good on a Sunday when the dealer is closed and
you're trying to figure out how something goes together, or....

You're shopping on Ebay and trying to figure out if the part on
auction fits your car. If you had the microfiche set, you'd know the
answer in two seconds.

Considering you have to be a Honda dealer to use HondaNet the last
time I checked (speaking of course about a legal copy of the software,
that is), the fiche might save you a few bucks over the couple hundred/
couple thousand dollar cost of a HondaNet subscription...

I'd say that the folks that bought these sets from me in the past got
a pretty nice deal. At least that's the feedback they gave me by e-
mail after receiving them.

Therefore, I suspect (and know) your theory is a little flawed.....

A quick Google tells me you've been a busy boy. You're selling fiches
for just about every automaker but Borgward.

With such a large list of products, one would think you'd
at least have a Website. If you were legit, that is.

I suspect you're not above a bit of unsubstantiated puffery.

Well, you did get something right at least . Yes, I have them for
various vehicles. I guess being busy in that regard isn't such a bad
thing, is it?

I still didn't see your answer on the question about HondaNet. Have
you ever used it or know what it entails? Just curious about your
"vast" experience with the Acura and Honda parts systems that you're
seemingly potraying on this board.

Never said I had any "vast" experience. My experience is limited to what
I've seen at the dealers' over the last 30 years. And that I see very
regularly. I'm not even sure they still use those CDs I used to see. Maybe
it's /all/ Web-driven now. I should ask next time I'm there...

The current computer system is really neat. You use your mouse to select
the vehicle (entering VIN if necessary), then the system you want (glass,
doors, ignition, engine, exhaust, whatnot...), then you click on the number
for the part that looks most likely to be the one in question (the number
then turns yellow).
The diagrams and nomenclature aren't that great, and you can only zoom in
so far, so there's a certain amount of specific parts knowledge needed. At
the right of the screen you get the retail price, and the number of parts
available in your area. You get this in a split-second. If the number for
the part won't turn yellow, that means the part is no longer available.
If you wish to order multiple parts, you select the parts you want from
that system (all the numbers turn yellow when selected). You can then print
out a parts list and invoice from that. You can combine parts from
different systems on the same invoice in just a few clicks. Really handy.

Now for the OLD days!...

Used to be you'd select the correct--but scratched and smudged--plastic
fiche sheet from the hundreds in the tabbed folders on your countertop
fiche holder. Then you'd slide it into this large, dim, and fuzzy reader.
You could focus the reader, but it was never 100% clear and bright,
except right in the very middle. Then you slid the fiche cart around with
the knob to show the assembly you were looking for. That gave you your part
number.
Then you had to go look on your shelves to see if you had that part in
stock. If not, you had to phone Honda to find out if they had the part you
were looking for. Then you had to separately and manually type up the
invoice.

Fiches are /so/ '80s.

You also never said why you lack a Website. Everybody and his dog has a
Website these days, but not, apparently, you.

Tegger:

I do. It's called Ebay. I have been selling there for 9 years now. As
to the system you mention, that's likely HondaNet. Unless you have a
Honda dealer sign on your door, it's not likely you're going to get a
copy of the program (at least a legal one that is).

Newsflash is that just about every car maker has that type of system.
GM's had it for years. It's Microcat, ProQuest, Reynolds and Reynolds,
EDS, etc.

Microfiche are durable and easy to read. You or your dealer must have
been using a bad reader. The one I had printed and everything. I'm
sure they're even better now.

You've seen it, but not used them? I have seen and used both (for over
16 years).

Either way, the microfiche are still viable and a great option. Unless
of course, you want to spend a few hundred thousand for a Honda dealer
franchise .

So, what about the website, and accountability? Inquiring minds want to
know.

Even worse is what I call pogo-posting. This when respondents ignore the
tendency of the thread, and simply start typing wherever their cursor got
dropped.

I've seen threads that hop up and down with each successive respondent,
with no order to them at all. Since pogo-posting messes up the quote-
indenting, the message becomes nearly impossible to read.
