  1. Yeah. These were on a 2002, I knew they weren't NK.
  2. Hey guys. I recently got these carbs in a parts trade with ClayW. After googling the model number just now.. I believe these may be of interest to you. From what I have found, they belong on a 1800 TI/SA. Weber 45DCOE 15/16 matching. I may use them on a motor build for my 2002, but feel that maybe they should stay with their ilk. Unless they aren't important to anyone. Then I may use them. I have some, maybe all of the original linkage parts as well. The manifolds are dated 1970. So they are 2.0 specific. Thoughts?
  3. The S14 buy in + rebuild costs sure make the S2000 motor much more attractive, if you want a hi-po multi-valve four banger. (Never thought I would say that out loud.)
  4. they were originally 15x6 et35 (per the owner). Tell me if I'm doing this right... Added 2" to the outside, making them 15x8. (et0 would be up the middle at 4") They were already 1.3" (35mm) in from center on the 6" rim. So they will still have a 2.7" back space, being that the wheel center did not move. Sounds crazy, and unless I am way off (which I totally could be), that equates to 35 + 25 = et60 ?? Or would it be 15X8 et10?? I don't think so, since the center didn't move.. I'm getting lost. But ultimately, its just poking the descent fitting 6" rim out 2 more inches to the outside of the car. Making for a wiiiiide stance. My current rear wheels are 15x8.5 et6 and there is only a 1/4" between the tire and the trailing arm on the inside. These would be quite the opposite, I think. more and more, et10 makes sense. I don't know.. I'm confused now. But I think they would be better for a 225/45/15 tire than my 8.5, but they would need a spacer to get the same fitment that I have now. The front on the other hand would be a tighter fit than the 15x7 et12 I have currently..
  5. Dave, you coming to the Ridge Run in September?
  6. I wonder what the offset is..
  7. That is pretty steep. I bought and built a set for that money last year.. after purchase I had them trued and powder coated in "BMW Silver", straightened and polished the (included) thinner, early small hub caps with new roundels, and then new tires.
  8. I have combed over this site several times over the years.. I love the vintage meats. http://classic.michelin.com/en/Classic-Tyre-range Those Perelli's remind me of these Contenentals TTs. I love the pattern.
  9. If you type like this, itlookslikethis. can we get the formatting to work like it does here? And do we still have a preview option before submitting a post?
  10. Air box in the mix here?
  11. As I said on FB (Jason Gipson), the rotor is up too high. I don't think you showed the distributor body before, or maybe I just completely overlooked the magnet ring. But its always been obvious that the button was held up too high by something and being crammed into the cap.. Ditch the pertronix/Hot Spark jobbie and put in points. I'll bet that all your issues go away.
  12. Too bad the covers got ripped... they are harder to find than the lights!!!
  13. Nice work Jim, you finally made it happen!!!! The hotel was the right color pallet, that's for sure. Super cool purchase and trip!!! So no Reggie's Saturday? JK.
  14. That's exactly where I will be hanging mine when it gets here..
