Re: NO CLUTCH

Crack the bleed screw, leave it open, and try to push the rod IN. If it won't move, the piston has pushed out of the bore, and the accordion sleeve is all that's holding the rod in place.

Re: Oil Not Registering on dipstick

The dipstick tube has probably moved upward out of the block. Not out completely, but up enough to render the dipstick reading erroneous.

Re: Gonna be gone for a while

Just had the second treatment of the second round (6 in 6 weeks, this was number 2). I tolerated it better than a week ago. Side effects of the first treatment hit me a few days ago. "Flu-like symptoms". Yeah, I'll say! Hey, if it kills the cancer, that's a small price to pay. It's a little awkward ...

Re: Shop lift for home use

The good (as I see it): much greater capacity.

The not so good: height adjustment by pin-in-hole.

From having used both, I can tell you the screw-adjustable stands are MUCH easier to use.

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

I was going to suggest an additional heatsink, too. This one works at the original mounting position with a little modification.

Good to see you posting again, Song. I'd thought you were gone for good.

Re: Crankshaft Position Sensor stuck

Yes, the sensors are the same. And the socket head cap screws are each supposed to have a washer. One got lost sometime in the distant past. It's easy to drop one (or the screw and washer, for that matter) while trying to place the screw in the sensor.

Re: Seat install question

Maybe none of these experts have tried swapping E36 seats into an E24. I'm not claiming to be an expert by any stretch if the imagination, but we as a group tend to not reply to questions we don't know the answer to. MOST E24 seat swaps involve seats from other BMWs of the same era (E21s, E30s, etc....

Re: Gonna be gone for a while

Had the follow-up with the doctor after a biopsy a week ago. The cancer is still there. I start another cycle of 6 chemo treatments, one a week for 6 weeks, next Monday, then another biopsy at 8 weeks. They didn't do more resections to remove the cancer, because it's in the lining. If the chemo does...
