Re: My aftermarket exhaust is too loud!

Bobbo may be able to chime in here but I am not sure if I saw it here or on another forum. It was a type of resonator that absorbed or deadened sound and controlled exhaust noise.Maybe by googling around looking for exhaust sound absorber or some such it might pop up up. They very large and could ea...

Re: Sourcing Fuel Pressure Regulator.

I just checked at Parts Geek. They have Beck Arnley in stock for $50 and Pierburg which is high end for $135 same cost as a Bosch unit if they had them in stock. Beck Arnley products are good and have been around for a while but you can do your research on that. I don't know what kind of shipping Pa...

Re: WTB: Series 1/E12 early fuel level sending unit

What's wrong with yours? I was lucky enough to find a new one at a reasonable price many years back. My problem was the screen at the bottom had ruptured. I have given a lot of thought to that particular issue over the years and if that is your problem I believe a "sock of very fine mesh can literal...

Re: Big problems with LMP, and Billie Boat

Living in the Phoenix area I have dealt with BB direct, I had an old system I wanted cleaned up. Bottom line is it took the close to 4 months to do but I ended up with a new system at 1/2 price. If that isn't backing up a product and good customer service, I don't know what is. The person to talk to...

Re: 265/6 into series one car .

I have a shaft and may know of a new gear wheel but the problem is price. You may be better off financially with the speed box until you find the proper set up. If you can find a discarded 4 speed the speedo drives from one will exactly interchange into the 5 speed gear box and I would think that is...

As said I need this for a pre 82 car. First choice would be from a Euro with A/C but a beggar can't be choosey s...

Re: Foot rest, 635csi automatic

Here in the States it is readily available at a rubber supply house. So I just bought some by the foot and cut to size. The original padding, of which I had some left, was approximately 3/8" plain upholstery foam with another1/4" of dense cell foam laminated over the top of it. You should have enoug...

Re: Foot rest, 635csi automatic

First of all there is not any styrofoam in the 635 carpeting system unless you are calling the original dense cell foam padding styrofoam. Secondly, going from the original carpet I removed from my 81 Euro there wasn't a pad on top of the foot rest on the left hand side/

Re: suspension options

The springs are not misaligned. The problem is if you use a heavy duty or standard Bilstein shock, or any other shock for that matter, with a lowering spring, the rear shocks will come off their perch when jacking up the rear of the car due to the fact that the stroke of the HD shock is longer. That...
