Re: Flywheel is no longer available. Where do I go from here?

I have a 22 lb flywheel available. It will need to be resurfaced for best results. I would first make an attempt at welding a new pin as it involves a lot less work than replacing the flywheel. You could also search for the old pin in the bell housing of the trans. Remove the inspection cover and us...

Re: WTB: Metric BBS 007 center cap

The RS007 caps have cast aluminum waffles but the stamped waffles also fit. Unfortunately I have a set of 4 007 caps so I'm really not inclined to break the set.

Send a PM if you're interested

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

The slider light bulbs are small leds and powered by an electrical track within each slider assembly. I sent you a pic of the track and hopefully you post it here.

The track gets greasy and dirty so contact is lost along the way. Use contact cleaner spary to try and clean up the track.

The value of anyrhing is what someone is willing to pay at the time (and Location) of the transaction Your dilemma stems from the lack of demand in your area along with your resistance to shipping the items You can ask the going rate for your parts if you’re willing to work with a buyer who will lik...

Speed and Reference sensors are the exact same part but provide different function readings to the ecu They both have to provide their proper feed to the ecu to effect spark. The absence of one sensor feed prevents the ecu from ha...

Well done so far but I have a couple of suggestions. The shift rod with the washer spacers is backwards in two ways. First, the shift rod is supposed to be on the driver (left for me) side of the assembly. Not sure why but that is how it is displayed in realoem and other tech materials. Second, the ...

Re: Headlight sides

The ones pictured appear to be aftermarket Hella H1/H4 units. The screw on trim ring is a give away.

83 and up Euro e24 Low Beam Headlights are sided as the rear mounts are different from left to right. High Beam are identical. I'm not sure about early cars.
