Hey guys-

As most of you know, I've been attempting to get my transmission installed back into the ol tii, and am having many difficulties.

I've come to the conclusion that I need some body that has done this kind of thing to help me out at home (my dad works 70+ hours a week and is never avail).

I will pay you what ever you require (with in reason) to help me get my car back on the road before it gets too hot to drive again. I need help ASAP.

Please contact me via email for directions or to follow up.

Thanks for all you guys do!!

-Zac

There's a guy named Tim Ng down there. He's an e30 M3 guy and posts on s14.net See if you can find him. He's pretty knowledgeable and has other models. Join BMWCCA and you'll find lots of help from good guys in your local chapter.

Well, Im not rebuilding the tranny or anything like that, I'm just going to be mounting it back up the engine, then bleeding the clutch and brakes, along with reconnecting to drive shaft.

Do you know where chateau elan up 85 north is? Im about 5 minutes from there.

When do you think you may be able to drive out here? Sunday?

Thanks

zac

If you are that close to Chateau Elan, you are that close to Bobby Thrash's Strictly German shop. He still likes to work on the older cars, and he's always been way more than reasonable with me. When my E30 M3 lost a couple of header bolts on the way to Road Atlanta, I limped it to his shop at closing time on a Friday - he tossed me the keys to one of his cars and told me to come back Sat. evening - Car was fixed, my weekend was saved, and he charged me $50. If Bobby can't help, maybe he can point you to someone else in your area that can.

Come on by Carma Motorsports. We do lots of older BMW work. Just did a head for a guy that got stuck up here from FL last week. Check out our web page and give me a ring. We can get you in and out fast. I also have a lot of 02 parts if you need anything

Alex, I'm pretty sure Zac's tii is immobile right now, unless he wants to have it towed... And if you do, I would say Carma would be a good place to take it though.

Sent you an email Zac. Soonest I can make it up there would be Saturday morning.

Ahh, Chateau Elan. Where the elite motorsports owners can relax while their crew members are busy readying their cars for a Road Atlanta race. Just kidding..

I wandered thru Bobby Thrash's place a while back on a GA business trip. I think he had some 700's under the pine trees (an Isetta was inside).

Yes Harrison if you have a tranny jack or a hydrolic jack that you could bring that would be great. Also what ever you'd use to bleed the clutch/brakes would be good too.

Do you still have my cell number> 678-22*-37**?

Do you need those directions agian?

What do you liek to eat for lunch and how much would you like to be paid?

(chris check your email)

One more thing... Did you get the exhaust manifold back from jet-hot?

If you are driving the 02 I might stroke out.. lol
