Helps to know what engine size you're talking about....
Fat chance of finding most parts. Obsolete from GM for many years. About the only thing available easily is the flexible hoses for the air intake and preheater. Aftermarket companies make OEM knockoffs now which are functionally and mostly visibly correct. Joe--ASE Certified Parts Specialist & 10th Ann.Club Tech Director '80 Carousel Red Turbo T/A, 26k orig.

Old time Oldsmobile motor, it MIGHT share some parts with the 307 which was used through 1990 here in the US.
Depending on what's missing, you're looking at mostly junkyard scrounging because most of the stuff you want is discontinued. If the preheater hose and air intake duct hose are missing, those should be available through any parts store dealing in US car parts, there are many companies that sell these here in the States.
If it's the hot air stove on the manifold, GM might still have that, but it may be different than a 307 used due to spacing/chassis configurations.
Best bet is to get a printout from the 76-81 Pontiac parts book for the preheater/air intake system with the 403 engine. Then decide what parts are missing and see what GM still has available.
