  1. You do know that most people on this board are on the other side of the planet dont you, so postage will be a problem? You could try local sources such as Jaymic http://www.jaymic.com/shop/default.asp on 01263 768768. I find them most amenable.
  2. Just to play devils advocate. The one great benefit of this policy, is that it has stopped you yanks from stripping the world bare of parts. For example, us europeons cant cant buy an E28 chrome rear bumper centre section, any more, for love nor money. Pulling my head in now!
  3. Metric nuts and bolts also have a manufacturers mark. Anyone have a list of those?
  4. Bad starter solenoid (its the bit on top of the starter, with the wires attached to it). Try tapping a couple of times gently with a steel rod from the top (dont let the rod touch the wiring contacts!).
  5. You need to be careful as some modern plugs dont have screw off ends.
  6. How level is your floor/stands? Are your tire pressures equal side to side? In your pictures the rear thrust angle keeps changing, so it would seem the car/wheels/tires are not level. Can you measure corner weights (to explain camber/toe changes at the rear)?
  7. I bet they put the gear selector rod #6 on the wrong side.
  8. The bag is definitely the genuine article. The screwdriver is a reversible German. I think all this talk of green, red and grey is a load of modern Mumbo Jumbo. BMW accepted whatever met spec. That yellow one has been in that bag for at least 30 years that I can verify.
  9. I dont, but would like one. They are used by all the tyre fitting places round here. I do have a knock of copy of the AC Hydraulic DK20HLQ. http://www.ac-hydraulic.dk/en/products/hydraulic-jacks/ My one complaint is that, though it has a low entry, it very quickly become a high entry, so I always have to use it with a block to stop the arm contacting the sills first. I think that there are more practical and much cheaper low entry trolley jacks out there.
  10. From a May '73 tii The 17mm end if the larger spanner has a crank in it to fit the rear brake adjusters.
  11. Surely the latching mechanism is designed to over centre and lock open. I cant believe Germans designed any other way?
  12. 1987 03 21 Steve (Conserv) will be along to give us the real skinny. He loves block dates!
