Re: Whos e24 has a broken odometer? Odometer gears here!

I've installed Garagistic gears in 4 E30s and 2 E24s with no difficulty, and all worked perfectly, first try. To be honest I've never used Odometer Gears products. I'm sure they are excellent.

Re: What do you think the best looking rims are for the shark?

You will not only need spacers (10mm or so) but you'll need them to be hubcentric for front AND rear. The style 42s have a hub bore of 74.1 instead of the E24 standard 72.56

Re: OBC Removal to Install New LED Light Bar

LED light is polarized. It shines brighter in one plane than another, although it may appear to shine equally in all directions to the naked eye. The liquid crystal in the display is polarized, also. That's why the illumination appears stronger/better at certain angles. Incandescent bulb light such ...

Re: starts once. ?

Run it a while as-is. My 633 smoked like a tar pot when awakened from it's lengthy slumber, but a couple cycles of soaking the cylinders with ATF and changing the oil, the rings finally loosened and sealed.

I don't think you could "stretch" 205/55's on 8" wide wheels, although I'm sure somebody out there has tried #-o
The "stance"crowd has done that and worse. Try 185s on 8" wheels. #-o Possibly the dumbest idea ever.

Re: 1984 633 CSi Erratical idling

When that same ground strap was accidentally left loose after a valve adjustment on my 633, it wouldn't run. The nut was finger tight. After tightening with a 10mm wrench, it ran as it did before the adjustment. That ground is more critical than most realize.

Re: Bilstein sieze up question

That's a risk with any shock or strut if it's allowed to sit long enough and rust the shaft. No more so with a Bilstein than any other higher quality product.

Re: Gonna be gone for a while

Survived the surgery, came home Thursday night, a couple days ahead of schedule . Got back from the follow-up appointment with Dr. Keel today about 1:45. Good report. Pathologist said they got all the cancer, including the prostate cancer they didn't know was there. No cancer in the lymph glands, so...

Re: engine stopping when it gets warm

It could be fuel blockage at the sock filter on the in-tank pump. Trash in the bottom of the tank can be sucked into/over the filter. Engine dies due to fuel starvation. Suction gone from the pick-up, the trash falls away until the engine is started again, cycle repeats.

I signed up. Yes, friends, I'm alive. Came home yesterday. Hurting pretty badly, but honestly not as badly as I'd anticipated. Killing time for the pain meds to kick in and came here.

Lots happening here. We are moving to my parents house before my surgery in two days (Monday, 22 Oct.). I inherited the house when my mom passed in 2012.

Re: issue on roadtrip, no instrument lighting

The brightness control? The lights wouldn't suddenly go out if it were barely moved, but could you have accidentally turned it all the way down? :-k It wouldn't affect the reverse lights, though.

If it won't fire on starter fluid you have no spark. Check the distributor innards. I'm thinking the rotor failed.
