    Supercharged Tii on Bat.

    O/T Joel!! Good to see you're still around!
  2. Heck yeah! MidAm is going to be GREAT! Oops...I guess I'd better fix my transmission problem pretty quick! See y'all there!
  3. Jim, it's a 4 spd. 242 but in an M20 configuration from an E21 323i. I think it's finally time for me to hybridize my 245 and extra 232 M20 case! Mike, the riviera car just got bumped top the front of the line! Six and a half years of 90% completion is long enough!
  4. But I'll be there in one of my modern Bimmers! Lost a bearing or jammed a shift rail, leaving my tranny jammed in 3rd gear for the final 15 miles into Rogers, AR for the True Friends of Alex Von Falkenhausenn Fall drive. Scott Trettle was kind enough to let me ride along and navigate in his beautiful '72 golf tii. The 175 mile trip home in 3rd was...interesting. We managed about 68-70 the entire way. Thanks Bo, Barb, and all the rest of the True Friends who turned out to make this weekend great!
  5. Looking forward to drinking with my '02 buddies!

    Who remembers these days?

    Yeah, the "personal attacks" forum was a dark corner of the FAQ. Years of self policing and the "no-ban" policy have paid off over the last 15+ years as far as I'm concerned.
  7. Thanks for the referral, Ed and all the kind words everybody! Happy to help any '02er in our neck of the woods! I'm also really impressed with Seth & Iveta, who will have traveled nearly 5,000 miles in their unrestored 1972 '02 by the time they get back to Colorado! I was disappointed to have to miss the Vintage (again!) this year, which I registered for. Had I gone, however, I wouldn't have been here yesterday to help these great folks out. Seems things do usually happen for a reason!

    Craig Reisser - RIP

    Thanks for sharing this, Jim. Craig was the very first vintage BMW enthusiast I ever met. He and I both stayed at the (dumpy) Riverside Motel in Hermann, MO for the very first MidAmerica '02 Fest in 2001. I met him in the parking lot at 7:00 A.M. He was examining my vin number through the windshield. We visited at length and he explained many of the subtle and not so subtle differences among roundies, which I understood nothing of at the time. I'll miss him.
  10. Well...I was supposed to be there in person, trying not to drool, but life threw me a curve. Great pictures! Thanks for sharing.
  11. Wow! I'm glad the puller didn't slip off...it had to be under tremendous pressure. You're going to need to replace the drive flange. Surely a friendly FAQ'er has one to spare.
  12. Are you saying that you actually bent the flange the wheel studs press into? If so, you must have been using an incredible amount of force on the puller. If you can, please post a photo of the damage so we can better understand the situation.
  13. I can't wait. Maybe I can get the riviera '73 finished in time...probably not. Oh well, old faithful will be good to go either way.
  14. Stefan, the pump doesn't reach the bottom of the tank in my '72 and I never extended the bracket. If anything, the pump might sit closer to the bottom of your lower volume tank. I'd bet it'll fit fine.
