    PDX: Looking for BMW Tool 6025

    As an alternative, you can use an aluminum rod an knock the rocker shafts out. Really easy to do and the aluminum rod costs about $5 bucks at home depot! If your head isn't all carboned up it takes no more than a few minutes per side to assemble or disassemble.

    Try calling Eric at Boyd Motor Werks. He might know. Carlos. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Anyone in the Portland area have or know where to get tool 6025 that holds down the rocker arms on the M10 engine so you can remove the cam shaft? I see some posts about making one but would like to find one before I have to resort to making one. Thanks Chris

    Any Portlanders here? [post a picture]

    Chiming in. Mine is sitting on stands right now with the engine out but hopefully will be able to join all you sometime in the near future. Definitely going to be doing some autoX once the LSD is installed and everything is buttoned back up.

    Is there usually a decent 02 showing? Went a couple weeks ago looking but didn't see any in my walk around. Mine should be put back together for when the sun comes out in the spring.

    I went with the hankook V2 195/50-15. It was the lightest tire I count find in that size. I was a little worried about the weight in the steel wheels so I tried to save a few pounds. 16 pounds BTW

    finally got my wheels! huge difference!
  11. This is very good to know! I like a cash discount. If you can trust them with some Hardy and Beck's I can probably trust them with a set of euroweaves!
  12. I agree with Andy. I had Premium Wheels in Tacoma straightened my Hardy&Beck 3pc wheel and I was really impressed. You can offer them cash to get a better pricing . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not really. Unless you're running timed laps on the track or autoX, I don't think it makes a huge difference. I did notice a little 'lag' on starts from a dead stop, but otherwise all good for me. YMMV.

    I just got my wheels today and I'm a little concerned about the weight, do you feel like its effects "performance"?

    So far I'm pretty happy with my 15" 4x100 Rota mesh wheels (et25) with 195/50-15 tires. https://www.amazon.com/PCS-ROTA-MESH-WHEELS-15X7/dp/B01CNL3BEU
  16. Nathan - I used Premium Wheel Straightening down in Tacoma to straighten and power coat my CMR steel wheels. Guy runs it out of his dads custom motorcycle shop, but he has nice equipment. My wheels were really beat, and he got them dead straight. I think he got the color right for the powder coat - it's what I wanted anyway. He was the only guy I could find that would deal with steel wheels, but I saw a ton of alloy wheels he was working on when I was down there. He was also cheaper than anyone else. That was a few years ago. I think I paid $300 for all four - he was laughing about how small they are (13s). I saw a lot of 20 inch wheels at his shop... I drove by the old Dependable shop in Renton a few months ago, and it looks like someone was doing wheel repair business again at that location. Good luck.

    Welcome to the club! Now you can look for early 80s Honda Prelude 6" center caps! They're the ones on the right. Pop off the logo and replace with a roundel and you're good to go. eBay is your best bet.

    ANYONE ATTEND THIS AUCTION

    I think the pics of the interior do not do the rest of the car justice. It looks like a solid car.

    I'll tell you one thing. They'll be 1000x easier to clean than my weaves!

    Saw that car at the BMW show this year in Renton. Wonder if it sold.
  22. Unfortunately dependable wheel repair closed a couple years ago as well :/
  23. I am curious if any of the local O2 community attended this auction. Found this on CL https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/ctd/d/lotbmw-2002-lucky-collector/6675389278.html.....not "my cup of tea" but intrigued if this got much action.

    Well, the deed is done! alcar wheels on the way! thanks @Teelinger and @Geoff Raynak I'm joining the club!

    Yes that's a working link. Tunershop is where I bought my 15s from, after I mistakenly bought 14s from VW Heritage. While the company that runs the Tunershop website are a bunch of greedy bastards, search threads about them, they do actually operate a functioning retail website.

    I can answer this ... since i gave James the link ... You can get the 5-120/15" version or the 4-100/14" in the UK here https://www.vwheritage.com/corrado/corrado-wheels/steel-wheels#page=1&top=100&\ BUT NOT the 4X100/15 ... the tuner link is perfectly fine they are alcar wheels ... and i got mine delivered in just a few days ...
