  1. Echoing the sentiments here...I recently installed the 3d printed dust caps that were FS on the faq recently. They fit perfectly. Also, if you get the IE fixed camber plates, it requires you tap out the old long studs after you remove the spacers. The studs coming out of the camber plates are still a little tall though. Ignore the filthy engine bay...it's a driver
  2. Looking for a set of these: https://www.pelicanparts.com/More_Info/51115670106BOE.htm?pn=51-11-5-670-106-BOE&bt=Y&fs=0&SVSVSI=5369 $24 a piece seems a little crazy when I bet someone has these sitting in a box somewhere.
  3. Thank you Steve! The site has been extremely helpful for me lately!
  4. I just changed it - per my searching here on the FAQ and my fathers' experience working at a dealer in the 70s, I finger painted sealant on both sides of the gasket.
  5. I think this is most likely the issue...the 5 speed conversion wasn't done very well originally. I'm having a reputable 02 shop check out the driveline alignment next week. This is an area where I'm okay paying the professionals.
  6. When we did this, it moved the trans forward as well (ie, the whole driveline assembly). What would this indicate? Or are you saying that we weren't pushing hard enough to break the diff free? It seemed to be at the front of the slots, which is why I initially thought that maybe the driveshaft is too short, like you suggested.

  8. I'm considering the IE one and am planning on calling Pelican Parts too, but wanted to check if anyone in SoCal had a good condition used resonator sitting around. Thanks, Matt
  9. This is exactly what we tried. When using a big screwdriver to leverage it forward, it was moving the trans and engine also, and not affecting the giubo. Fan distance seems fine to me It’s a brand new 6 bolt Febi unit from Blunt, Ray [emoji851] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I think you’re right, however there wasn’t a ton of room for the diff to keep moving forward. Might have to try motor mounts as well Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Was just in Sacramento last week. Pretty town. I desperately need this offer in LA!
  12. One of the things we tried was to undo the diff mounts to the axle (and the hanger) and to slide it forward. It ended up moving the trans and engine with it when we push it forward with a big screwdriver. CSB is preloaded 2mm. Didn't think the engine mounts had that much room to slide forward?
  13. Got the car on the wheels and it started up!! Still worried about the giubo which isn't exactly parallel...thinking I need a new driveshaft.
  14. The dipstick mount appears to be consistent with an early M10.
  15. Welcome to the group. You'll meet a lot of us in the LA area. Ireland Engineering is hosting an open house on October 12th, if you want any extra parts, bring cash.
