    Curious what kind of miles y’all have put on your “02” since doing the S14 swap? Since December 11th, 2017, I’ve racked up 39,665 trouble free miles. I did make a 3905-mile round trip to Mid-America ‘02 Feat, 2019. Looking forward to Mid-America “2020”. Shout out to my brother at “Riparetti Cylinder Head Service”, Kuna, Idaho for building one AWESOME motor...... 69470078-0B1A-4C24-9000-74852E99FC70.MOV

    Hagerty's Barn Find Hunter series finds what the owner claims is one of the first 3 2002's to enter the U.S. in Montana. Owner's father bought the car new. Video portion is about 2 minutes beginning at 17 minutes in. https://www.hagerty.com/articles-videos/articles/2019/09/18/barn-find-hunter-ep-64-1951-nash-fight?utm_source=SFMC&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Daily_News_Thursday_Sept_19https://www.hagerty.com/articles-videos/articles/2019/09/18/barn-find-hunter-ep-64-1951-nash-fight?utm_source=SFMC&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Daily_News_Thursday_Sept_19

    I know the factory cage nuts that hold the side mirrors are pretty much no longer available. Just thought i would pass on a tip. I just redid my doors and had to remount my side mirror. I ordered M4 jack nuts with a large head and they fit perfectly and are nice and tight. These are the ones i ordered. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Steel-Blind-Jack-Nut-Yellow-Zinc-Plated-M4x17-0-67-25-Pcs-TJM01-NEW/322027695812?hash=item4afa58aec4:g:OPwAAOSwkbdbRiOy You do not need a special tool. Put a jack nut in a vise and squeeze it slightly to get the legs to start to bend out very slightly. Then insert into door and tighten down on the jack nut with a M4 bolt which will finish squeezing out the legs and lock the jack nut in place. Undo bolt and mount mirro. Works great and holds better than the oem cage nuts in my opinion.

    Washington has never done visual inspection, don't know if they will start now but doubt they'll start, I'm looking forward to the state auctioning off 250 chassis dyno at once they will probably set the value at 100 bucks or less. Marty, who suddenly needs more shop space.

    the proper ratio is one half rpm per watt of draw. so, two fifty-five watt headlight bulbs should drop the rpm by 55. don't forget to add up the wattage for the other running lights. (okay, I just made that up)

    Thirty years ago I spent a PNW winter in an old RV and used a kerosene heater to stay warm. I cannot stand the smell of kerosene burning now. I wish I could have those brain cells back. I'd like to have the '67 Lazy Daze camper too, but I wrecked it. It looked just like this one, with a 318 V8 between the seats... headers and glass packs. I'd suggest putting a wood stove in there. I ran the chimney for the one I have in the shop out the window hole and up, to keep from having to go through the metal roof. I hate kerosene heaters. Protect those brane sells! Tom

    As long as it is a 1975 model, and not a 1976, it’s not subject to CA emissions. Still, there might be someone out there that desires a car with full emissions controls regardless of need — as I do with my original-owner ‘76. The difference is that the 1975 model has the punishing and problematic thermal reactor exhaust manifold, whereas a 1976 model, 49-state version, has but an air pump and a dashpot... 😉 Nonetheless, looks like a very nice car!

    I run the Febi-Bilstein versions of the factory alloy rim lug nuts on both my ‘76 and my ‘73, although they have late and early OEM alloys, respectively. https://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-e10-2002-Lug-Bolt-for-Alloy-Wheel-x16-Febi-BILSTEIN-nut-lugnut-rim-lugbolt/352722960066?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D7b4a52bc692d4445a6c49ef2d134d4a9%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D352722960066%26itm%3D352722960066%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2481888&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A61505185-da85-11e9-b6d9-74dbd1802419|parentrq%3A475adfc516d0a9cadb834ea9ff981068|iid%3A1 There is no extra conical washer. Are those some form of “wobble nuts” on the original poster’s car? Whether yes or no, I’d probably jettison them fast. If the conical washer still spins after the nut is tightened, that suggests to me that the nut has bottomed out, and is tightening against the stud, rather than against the rim. That sounds wrong, and quite dangerous! My question, nonetheless, was: were those odd-ball lug nuts installed by someone who (a.) didn’t know WTF they were doing, or (b.) understood exactly why they were using such odd nuts, e.g., the bolt holes were elongated or otherwise damaged? Here’s the page from RealOEM.com, showing the BMW part number (Item 7, ending in -3132) for the late OEM alloys I run on my ‘76. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=2215-USA-04-1976-114-BMW-2002&diagId=36_0363 And here’s the same page from RealOEM.com, showing the same BMW part number (Item 3, ending in -3132) for the early OEM alloys I run on my ‘73. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=2583-USA-10-1972-114-BMW-2002tii&diagId=36_0363 Regards, Steve

    I bring my tool with me everywhere I go. Hands. But I will say, that tool of yours is pretty cool! Never seen one like that before that will accept a ratchet. I usually only see them with a built in handle.

    Hi, One other comment on manifolds. I have never bought a "new" manifold that did not require mating to either the carbs and/or the head ports, so the comments on the IE manifold would not alarm me. There is a difference between poor casting and the need to mate them, the latter is almost always the case. If the ports cannot be lined up at all or the flanges are not true is a different issue.

    Here’s a recent picture of my 1600. 13x7 Ronal Kleeblatts up front. I think they have an offset of et3. Wrapped in CN36’s. I’m going to switch them out with Toyo 205/60’s in the near future. The rears are 13x8 Compomotive TH1381’s, et-11 with old Sumitomo 205/60’s. I’ll be replacing them with my 13x8 Ronals once I buy tires. Car has IE front coilovers, shortened and bent with fixed camber plates. The rears are IE stage one springs with 1dot pads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Success? My 1970 ‘02 was incorrectly registered by Pennsylvania as a 1969 when I bought it. The first owner was aware of the issue but un-concerned. No problem: I can fix it. After multiple visits, calls, and a letter to the D.M.V., they sent me an updated title. Sure enough, I received a 1971 title. 😯 I sent it back with a letter. They sent me a 1969 title. I moved on: I had bigger fish to fry.... 😉 Regards, Steve

    Yes, thanks very much to Trieu for making these harnesses. That's what makes this place great - someone coming up with an innovative solution to a problem, and then going out of their way to help others with the same problem. Andy

    8k miles on mine. BUT, 3k of that are pointless street miles where an S14 is wasted. 5,000 of the miles on my car have been on race tracks where the engine has been properly used. 😎

    I seem to remember "back in the day" (the 80's) these were used on BBS / aftermarket rims so that the lug nut would not score or wear the rim. "Some" rims had steel inserts in the holes and you would not need these, but for others which did not, you used these to prevent undue wear. IIRC, they were the "fancy expensive" lug nuts.

    Andy - contact FAQ user @TsingTao for a replacement harness. He can make one for you.

    No need to apologize, in my opinion, for wanting a return on your effort and time investment. Keep it / save it / cut it up for parts. Enjoy. -KB

    I've been using the same one Paul Winterton pictured since long before Harbor Freight started selling it--actually since before Harbor Freight existed. But it works just fine and is swivel-jointed to reach in around the alternator. Be sure and cover the top of the battery with a rag, or take your watch off while removing the filter. It's easy for a metal watch band to ground between the + battery terminal and the battery hold-down clamp. Results: a red-hot watch band and second degree burns...I know from experience. mike

    I got this one for $10 and it works fine. I was surprised at how well it was made for only ten bucks. https://www.amazon.com/Volkswagen-Mercedes-Sprinter-More-Also-Aftermarket/dp/B01N1XTLYE/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Heavy+Duty+74mm+14+Flutes+Oil+Filter+Wrench+For+Volkswagen,+Mercedes+Benz,+VW,+Audi,+Porsche,+Mazda,+Sprinter+And+More-Also+Fits+Select

    Suggest using a thin rubber or plastic washer under the nut face to prevent cracking the paint around the hole as you tighten the nut to expand the holding legs... mike

    I'd submerge it in Marvel Mystery Oil. But I have no scientific rationale for that. Or maybe in a nitrogen atmosphere... ;-) Cheers,

    Here is my 1969 1600-02 with Remotec wheels from 1968-71' (or so). These are 5.5" ET20 13" wheels with Pirelli 185/70VR13 CINTURATO'S on them. Zero issues with rubbing along with the H&R springs that lowered the car approximately .5". Loved the Remotec's and I have not seen too many of them around so it was a nice fit I thought (besides the original steelies).
