4 HP 22 Output Shaft Seal - Need Advice

Guys, After an underbody inspection this weekend of the Garage Queen, I saw some congealed goo around the rear trans support so I am guessing that the output shaft seal ought to be replaced. Since the car hasn't been a DD for years, I'm not surprised at the congealed condition. I'm looking for "how ...

My experience as a former drag racer is that the (aside from the gunk you've got) the roughness aids low velocity air flow and mixing in a carbureted and injected engine. High velocity likes smooth surfaces for max flow.
Just my opinion

New Floor Mats

I'm looking for new front and rear floor mats in Beige (the body is Bronzit) and the carpeting is beige. Hoping to get a "BMW" logo (not the roundel) and thicker padding under the accelerator/brake pedals. The last set I bought looked a bit greenish and now are too dirty to resuscitate. I've found t...

Bert was going on a trip to Eastern Europe. I think he left early last week and I'm guessing from our emails that he'd be gone for a few weeks.

Shipping Costs

I got a quote from UPS for ground freight to ship a boxed auto trans (total weight about 250lbs) from NYC to Atlanta for almost $800! WTF! I made my inquiry directly to UPS Ground who needed a commodity code to properly classify the freight. I'm trying to send a 5HP30 for a rebuild.... Does anyone h...

Rockauto also has seal kits as follows: Edelmann #8841 $20.79 Gates #348424 $29.79 Don't know if it includes a shaft seal which is as follows: National #7013S $4.86 SKF #7475 $9.62 This is for my 1984 633Csi which should have the same or similar pumps, but at least you can check Rockauto for your ca...

Ross, It's simply a matter of space. If he's got none in the engine compartment, look elsewhere. And if vented properly, there is great airflow under the car. Also, the supply/return lines also provide cooling (think of your home's baseboard fin-coil tubing if you have hot water heating in your hous...

You be the expert here. But if there is no alternative, "reasonable price" and the only source of world-side supply becomes a monopoly and is subject to negotiation.

Can someone get a technical drawing of the part with all the dimensions? Or use the old part as a basis for the drawing. I'm sure there must be some machine shop that can fab them up?

For what it's worth, here's an idea for the oil cooler. Use the space where the spare tire goes and ventilate it. Locate the cooler there and run aeroquip real stainless braided tubing to it. Cover the area with a gasketed, screw down cover so you can access it from in the trunk. You may also use st...
