Early car lowering parts

I have the complete parts for lowering an E 12 chassis car. The springs are ST evidenced by the brown paint with which they painted all of their performance suspension parts and Bilstein sport shocks to go with them. This is a hard to find combo as the springs and shocks are both rare to find and ar...

Re: 633csi starts then stalls, nothing seems out of the ordinary.

Unless I missed something reading through all of this, have you tried pulling the dipstick? If pulling it doesn't affect idle you have a problem there. A simple something that is often overlooked.

A plus from me as well. Double checked the diff I wanted to buy from him to make sure it was what he had advertised and called me while he was standing in front of it and checked it out as I described to find out it wasn't.

Re: E12 based car

Maybe Brucey has an answer, as he is quite knowledgable on the finer points of the 2 different suspensions in the 6 series cars. As to the 12 years I have been restoring my 81 euro, of which 7 of those years were spent looking for new lowering springs, I have never run into one person, some of which...

Re: Transmission bracket

Throttle pedal slips under a "bracket that sticks up through the carpet from the floor board. It simply pulls out towards the rear of the car. The top of the pedal slips over the accelerator arm. It's a no brainer. If the console covers the carpet, slit it no one will see it. I have an early car so ...

Re: 633csi starts then stalls, nothing seems out of the ordinary.

Before anyone starts throwing things against the wall, what injection system? Ljet or Motronic? if Motoronic 1.0 or 1.1? You are right on the cusp. I am guessing it is a US manufactured car?

Re: Sideloader Ratios

I think the only difference may be if there is a different bolt pattern on the ring gear. I am not sure if it is the side plate or the ring gear but there is a difference where one uses 8 bolts and the other 10. So if in the ring gears it's a problem. And yes there should never be a problem switchin...

Re: Transmission bracket

Other way if you have some spare change is go to a collision shop with a frame machine and they will pull it and get everything dead square. Odds are they will be able to attach to the area with one of their jigs from the underside and pull it to where it should be and line it up with lasers

Re: Sideloader Ratios

3:64 is the holy grail for an OD transmission.The E24 guys on the "other" forum and big players on the other coast swear that is the one to get. I myself have seen very, very few 3:64 lsd side loaders. Of course once you have an LSD then it's just a hunt for a diff with the gears and an open diff re...

Re: Sideloader Ratios

Maybe you have just have opened up a whole new can of worms. Never heard of this option from the factory nor anything more than a 25% lockup It would be neat if you could find some support info. If you can't find any back up, a call to Metric Mechanic may be the only accurate answer

Re: Sideloader Ratios

My understanding is the 3:25 is the ratio used with automatic transmission cars and probably why you don't come across them in LSD

actually I'm pretty sure that particular crossmember is cast aluminium. It ought to be weldable though.cheers
Agree But will take a very competent welder at that point and might as well start looking for a used one unless a good welding shop is accessible

Re: Transmission bracket

FWIW I don't think the floor of the car is badly bent, mainly it is the 'rail' that the gearbox mounts onto that appears to be deformed. I'd suggest driving something rectangular along the slot lengthwise (there is an opening at one end). You might well find that some hammering is needed from insid...

Something not right right here. I just looked at realoem again. Put in an 85 car and chose that as a midyear on the E28 chassis cars. It shows a trans cross member for $40 Part 23711175732.
