  1. Hi Keven, Any visor sets left? I’d like a set... what do I have to do? Toca Rivera in Escondido, Ca. 92029
  2. Can’t add to something that doesn’t exist... this is confusing. I got this message when I clicked your link: The page you requested does not exist Any time I see the ( .50/page) in the link, the links will not open or The page you requested does not exist
  3. What is this construction zone you’re referencing? Is that how the FAQ labels that area on the site? And, if its not called the ‘construction zone’ could you please give me the correct title so I can find this “construction zone”?
  4. Isn’t a leak down test done with the head off? Or do you just squirt the miracle oil directly into where the spark plugs screw into? That seems to be the easiest access to the top &sides of the pistons so the oil will LEAK DOWNtest? But if the head is attached, what and where does anyone look for changes (oil leaking somewhere else from pistons).
  5. WOw, that was 2002. The year I mean... AND I wanted to push my favorite o2 to the top!!!
  6. Thanks BlueBMW! Can’t wait to see it...... I also clicked <Notify me of replies> so I’ll be lookin forward to your response. TocaChakra
  7. I know I’m a bit ahead of myself but How can I purchase this calendar?
  8. According to what I’ve read, this thread is 6yrs old. Call me newb but the concave washer that is 1st or second in order looks to me (IMHO) to be backwards. In other words the rounded side should be OUT with the concave up against the urethane bushing. Therefore, as you tighten the castle-nut the concave washer serves to push the urethane bushing against the ID opening. That metal bush should not allow for any kind of play in the threaded end of the tension rod/arm. Someone please correct me.... IMHO, TocaRivera
  9. Today was the culmination of 2 months hemming and hawing about buying a 4pt lift. I went with the Quick Jack. I left a message on the site for anyone who’s already purchased one to give me a PM on how they liked/disliked the lift. Got no response ( I’ll probably get a butt-load of responses AFTER I purchase.... just sayin’). So anyway, I bought it. I started cleaning and clearing the shop to actually get to THE BUILD!!! After having taken an o2 apart and cleaned and restored what was restorable, I was on the computer (02 FAQ) nteaching myself about this car. Many thanks to those who purchased the Automatic parts and to o2Lane (in San Diego) for coming to my home and showing me his fab 02. Now it’s time for ME to kick it in the pie hole and get it started.!!! Shots of the ‘ACTUAL’ 02 I’m working on:
  10. My bad. I thought this heading was asking me “What I did to my 2002 today?” Well.... I worked on struts. Then, I asked if anyone could direct me to “The Many previousLy published articles that discuss the operation. You know, LINKS. Having spent hours onsite to help teach myself as much as I can learm on this site I’ve come across many well written articles with FuzzyPhotoBucket pictures, out-dated links and the like. I love it when someone actually answers the questions I’ve posed on the forum. It’s awesome that John in Va. knows of “Many previous ones that discuss this operation”....... Could you kindly send me those LINKS? That would be gratefully appreciated... Thanx for your input...
  11. I spent about 8 hrs just reading and trying to soak up as much as I can. I did remove the struts off the parts car and disassembled them and had to stop at the point in the strut where the shaft protrudes from. I managed to unscrew a rather large- I’m gonna call it a cover nut that forms the top end of the the strut tower. Beyond that, I’m stuck... well, I’ll have another few hours tomorrow and hopefully someone will take pity on me and send me in the right direction OH......... AND WITH PHOTOS!! And..... NOT PHOTOBUCKET BLURRY PHOTO-SHARES This one on the left I took to pieces to see what its made of, what’s in it and I got to use a spring Tensioner thingy. The other strut. I was trying to get this inner shaft out.... don’t even know if its possible. I do have the strut bolted to the corner of the table. That made it easier to remove the cover-nut that encompasses/centers the shaft. I gotta tell ya, the PO tore this little automatic a new mud hole thru complacency. I don’t know really what to look for (wear-wise) but 2 struts that don’t match in their functunality gotta mean something. My BimmerBIBLE This is the shaft I’d like to slide out of that hole..... Grrrr! Somebody know how to do this? And a Happy ThanxGivin to ALL!!! ME (TOCA), will be sharing that spliff with ole’ TOEKY the Bear @4:20!!!

  13. I’m such a newb to all this... I do know that a Weber 32/36 was taken out of this 74A. I don’t know what the linkage looks like. can you shoot me a photo of what you’re looking for or send me somewhere where I can find a photo?
  14. If that’s Photobuckets way of sharing photos then ill have to say that a great write-up was marred by the inability to see what the article was explains. That’s like me trying to do a mechanical job wearing 1/2” thick glasses (I dont wear glasses). Is there a way of releasing the photos so we can see what’s being SO THOROUGHLY explained. Just sayin’ ...
