Re: Armrest install

I’m liking the size and shape of the jag x-type armrest as suggested by Olympia. Got a scruffy one from eBay to try with one of the scruffy handbrake consoles from the shed.

Re: carpet under AC unit

Brucey, "special prodding tool" carries a greater potential for innuendo than I can deal with!

For what it's worth, the blunt end of a trim removal tool has helped me out with this job - blunt enough not to tear the carpet, but strong enough to give it a shove.

Re: Throttle Body Overhaul

Those springs are available from dealer. The needle bearings I got from ebay.

The rose joints in the actuating rods were sticky and were one of the biggest causes of the throttle sticking, but the underbonnet temperature with an aftermarket exhaust manifold (before having it coated) exacerbated it.

Re: E24 M30B34 Supercharger project

Wow Martyn, That looks amazing! I'm getting the parts together for the same project on my '84 635, but with a B35 head, Shrick cam and ITBs. I'm using the M62 for this because it fits so neatly in place of the aircon compressor, but I realise I'll be pushing it as hard as it will go to get a meaning...

Many thanks for reassurance on this Jose. No tab on this diff, Ralph - bearings are identical on non-oil drain open diff too.

LSD oil drain position

lsd drain hole.jpg I am sticking the LSD parts that came from the M635 diff with no case into the open diff in my project 635. Can anyone confirm that the oil drains(if that's what they are) in the flanges should be positioned at the bottom of the diff case? The open diff, on the left, doesn't have...

I'm hoping this will be one of those questions that leaves me feeling stupid for asking, but reassured nonetheless! I've removed all of the little Phillips head screws that hold the brake and fuel pipes retainers in place, but as you might imagine, they are not in a state that I'd like to re-use. Th...
