Re: FS Denon Cassette Receiver DCR-5470

Here are the images. It is clean and was in a car that I stored inside, It worked when I removed it years age. It also comes with a case logic padded soft carry bag. This is not a faceplate unit but the entire device comes out of the frame (included) which is wired into your sound system. It also ha...

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

I would set up another zone and have rotating heads (Hunter PGP or equivalent) on each gable end. During normal times, set the zone timing to zero so they won't go off. When in an emergency, set the drip timing to zero and the roof sprinklers to max time, multiple times a day. Water is cheaper than ...

FS Denon Cassette Receiver DCR-5470

I'll post a pic shortly. This is a pull-out type "Theft Prevention Chassis" or can be bolted to the frame. Comes also with a Case Logic carrying case. I probably have the original paper work somewhere in my files. No reasonable offer plus postage from 11968. About 5 lbs boxed. PM me if interested. Ken

Song,
What kind of roof do you have? Tile? Asphalt? You could add a zone or two to sprinkle the roof and the parking spot where you keep the car!

Small Improvement to shop air systems

Recently I noticed that Harbor Freight was carrying two different quick fit air couplers. The older item has 3 retaining balls while the newer (about $1 more) has 4 retaining balls which should be more secure and leak less. One hopes to reduce the compressor cycling to minimize the noise. I also use...

Re: My 6'er

Today I received my new fuse box/relay cover (P/N 61 31 1 368 802) but it is too snug to latch properly. I swapped the rubber gasket thinking that the new one was too fat (or had not shrunken to the extent that the old one had). But even with the old one in the new plastic cover, it would not latch....

I helps to have tow hitches on the larger cars and access to a "tow-behind" dolly from U-Haul. You can pack a lot of stuff in that 6.

Re: My 6'er / Mufflers from Latvia?

Why am I seeing 633Csi mufflers from Latvia on eBay? Real or fake? Any clue about the seller. What I really need is the rear silencer section so can I use a rear section from a 635 muffler? Any reasonably good used units out there with you folks?

Re: My 6'er - Starter switch replaced

So after some minor problems, the switch was replaced. I thought the 5 hours of labor including testing and diagnosis was a bit much but it had to be done. My druthers would have been to flat bed the car to my driveway and do it at my leisure. Other minor quibbles was that the tech buggered the hing...

Re: Lubricating the windshield wiper arm system with?

I would NOT use sewing machine oil nor 3-in-1. Both are designed to evaporate over time. If you know an active sewer, they will tell you to frequently re-oil the machine. Un-oiled, neglected machines will gum up. I like white grease spray lube or white grease in a tube. That goes back to my days wit...

Ken, The diagram on REALOEM shows a metric grub screw and a fracture bolt. Which one needed to come out? And if the fracture bolt, what was the metric size of the replacement hex bolt? I feel your pain. So that's why I'll pay the tech to do the work rather than a chiropractor to fix my back. Some th...

So I just met with the tech. The Power Probe told the story that the solenoid is ok, the car starts with a jumper and it is the starter switch, not the tumbler. Next step: online order. But the delivery times seem to be much longer so I went the local route. While my local stealership is slightly mo...

Re: My 6'er Ignition Switch

From JPS635 The spring return was buggered in mine and I couldn't get a definitive answer on what needed replacing so replaced both the switch and the ignition lock barrel (swapped over the cylinder). From memory the spring return is in the switch. Either way it's not too difficult a job but painful...
