AC Delco parts catalog is located at this link: http://parts-catalog.acdelco.com/catalog/catalog_search.php 

Their catalog will give you only AC Delco part numbers which you can then search for at retailers and online suppliers.

Make sure you spot check AMAZON AC Delco Parts as there are many sellers that use the marketplace to sell AC Delco auto parts.

Activist investors targeting auto-parts retailers are taking hits to their investments, and Amazon isn’t helping.

When hedge fund Starboard Value LP disclosed a stake in Advance Auto Parts Inc. in 2015, it said the stock, then at $171, could more than double. The retailer’s shares have instead nearly halved since then, after warning weak sales will continue for an industry that’s also drawn interest from billionaire Carl Icahn. Advance Auto’s peers O’Reilly Automotive Inc. and AutoZone Inc. also have also plunged this year amid disappointing demand.
