Re: My henna 84

Great looking brackets. Which model fan did you use? Thinking of making sets for the BC crowd? PM me a price for a set?

Re: 1984 BMW 633csi 5speed low miles!

The wheels are marked 6-1/2J x 14H2 BMW22. The winter tires (haven't used them ever) are Michelin X FR78-14 M&S. Am having a problem with one tire that the tire place said is "corrosion on the bead". Although they said they fixed it, the problem (3 weeks later) is now worse than ever. Tomorrow I wil...

Re: 1985 635 Csi (Euro) 5sp - Jet Black

What did you do to replace the rotted muffler? I have a similar (but not so severe) condition. I will have my local muffler shop try to weld that gap. Alternative two is JB Weld or similar. Last solution will be a replacement rear which would not be OEM

Re: My muffler is NLA - what to do?

If the muffler shop can't do it as they may see too much rust, can I seal it up with tin solder which can be laid on with a hand held torch?

Re: Anyone Heard from Ralph in SoCal?

We should all send condolences to him as I am sure it was a very trying time for him and his family. I know it was for me and my wife when we lost our fathers. But never the less, he is back in the parts biz as i received a package from him today. Warmest regards and blessings to Ralph. Ken Weinstein

Re: Harbor Freight sockets not up to snuff

I think what exacerbated the stress is that the "wobble" extension is narrower than a standard straight extension.
But it will go back for replacement and I'll use my 1/2" impact set in the future.

Re: Interior dash light Binncle light not working any help

A binnacle is a waist-high case or stand on the deck of a ship, generally mounted in front of the helmsman, in which navigational instruments are placed for easy and quick reference as well as to protect the delicate instruments.

Harbor Freight sockets not up to snuff

While removing a tire, I twisted off the HF "Pittsburgh" 3/8 wobble extension. These lug nuts were always hand tightened with care so I know there was no pneumatic gun involved. Maybe 3/8" was too small, but this was not a Jesus bolt or anything.

My muffler is NLA - what to do?

While replacing a tire with a persistent leak, my muffler is making the pfffft sound so I found a small hole where the tube after the cat meets the rear muffler. Realoem cites the part as 18129068555. And the dreaded NLA notation for my 84 633 Vin 6997510. I may be able to jamb JB weld into it or ha...

Re: Battery relocation/trunk refurbish project

On my E32, the battery is under the rear seat. There is a vent line from the battery to a hole in the floor with a proper grommet. All BMW engineered. So if you are using a battery that emits H2 or H2S, I would definitely vent that set up.
