As an interested
person currently rebuilding a '67 Olds 442, I began the
project of transcribing the entire contents of the '64-'72
Canadian Oldsmobile F85 Master Parts Catalog on December 15,
2010 as a way of helping out my fellow Oldsmobile
Cutlass/442 enthusiasts. Trying to find the correct factory
part number for a specific part on your project hasn't been
easy for the average person, especially due to the fairly
limited availability of the complete master parts catalogs.
There are some Final Issue catalogs which are dated 1975 (or
aren't too hard to find, but these versions don't include a
lot of parts for earlier cars, and many parts which had been
superseded or deleted at the time of printing aren't even
included. What we needed was an MPC with an earlier print
date to ensure complete coverage of the F-85/Cutlass/442
I began the search for a U.S. version
of the MPC with an early '70s print date for some time without
success, though as I understand it, this type of bodystyle-specific print
manual wasn't even available in the U.S., so I decided to
acquire this Canadian version. There shouldn't be a lot of
differences between the Canadian and U.S. versions, so this online
version of the Canadian F-85 MPC should aid you in finding the correct
part a majority of the time.
The MPC pages used to transcribed here
photocopies of the originals, and as such many of the
illustrations aren't the most detailed or might have an
appearance. However, they should still serve the purpose of
identifying a part, since this MPC isn't designed to be a
replacement for the factory Assembly Manual anyway.
You might notice in the Illustrations
Index that there appear to be skipped images in the
numerical sequence. Don't worry...all images included with
the MPC have been (or will be) included here as well. The text portions
(group listings) of some images continued over to the following illustration page,
so there are no images to show for that page.
If you happen to notice any typos or
other mistakes, please feel free to contact me and I'll get
the item(s) corrected as quickly as possible.
