  1. I've had pretty good luck just inserting the nozzle upside down and then running it at less than full volume.
  2. In Seattle, interested in hazard switch off 8 pin, gutter trim. Nose section of beltline trim. 98117 thanks
  3. Interested in hazard switch if 8 pin, gutter trim, nose section of beltline trim. To 98117
  4. Sherman,

    i sent an email yesterday, so feel free to respond to that or here. Wondering about pricing on your parts and whether you can send photos.

     

    thanks,

    Phil Smart

  5. Resra, I figured out the PM thing yesterday and responded to to your message via email... Thanks
  6. Resra, sorry but I'm a classified newbie. Not sure where to see your PM or how to respond. Can you help me out? Thanks.
  7. In Seattle, Had a minor mishap in my '74. Looking for decent quality parts, prefer local, but open to shipping. Need: Front bumper with rubber insert Bumper shocks and cover trims Accordion bumper ends Center grille Center section of hood belt line trim
  8. It's nor clear what parts you're selling. I think it's one or more transmissions and maybe an m10 engine. Can you clarify? Pics would help. As would location per previous post. Thanks, Phil
  9. Thanks, that's good to hear. I checked out Maximillian Importing and AZ Autohaus for a replacement module. Maximillian shows a part #12141266702 "Control Module" for $278. I'm assuming that's the Bosch OEM part. AZ shows a Hueco part #12141466333 for $21.49. It's hard to imagine there can be that much difference, but I guess I'll give the Hueco version a try... The car seems to run great with the new coil w/ resistor connected though it did try to quit momentarily on my way to work this morning, under uphill load and in heavy rain. I managed to keep it running by immediately clutching and flicking the gas pedal a couple of times and it continued on as if nothing was wrong. But that tells me there's still an issue somewhere. I hoping the "budget" module does the trick. I'll run w/o resistor once I get the new part.
  10. Thanks. I'll run with the resistor until I have a spare module in the trunk and then give it a try without. Will be worth at least 10 hp I'm sure.
  11. Toby, When you say "ignitor" and "spark control module", both are references to the small black device mounted to the passenger side of the engine bay, right? And are you thinking that it might be cutting out rather than the coil. I've heard of coils doing that, which is why I went down that road, but I would have thought the module would either work or not work, period and not stop working when hot only to come back to life once it cooled off. But I have no idea about the inner workings of that thing so maybe... I'm happy to be schooled. Thanks
  12. My 74 sports a 1.8 liter motor from an 82 e21 with what I think is the original e21 coil ( Bosch 0221 122 029) and transistorized control module. It's also had a .9 ohm external ballast resistor in front of the coil for as long as I've owned the car.( a long long time...) The coil recently started cutting out after 20 minutes or so of operation so I replaced it with an Imports Direct coil from o'reilly's. The label on the new coil references the Bosch number so it's clearly intended as a specific replacement. I checked resistance before I installed it- measured about 1.2 ohms across the primary winding, so I'm thinking I should keep the resistor since I understand you're supposed to have about 3 ohms total resistance. But it seems like the e21 didn't run an external resistor at all, or at least I can't find one listed anywhere. So the question is, do I need the resistor? The car runs sweetly with it hooked up but maybe it would be even better if I bypassed it? On the other hand, I'd hate to burn up my control module... Any advise?

  14. Thanks, I'll give him a shout on Monday. I'm hoping my project is "small"...
  15. Does anyone know if Midnight Motorsports in Seattle is open for business? Contact info? No luck via Google... I have some electrical issues going on that are over my head, plus I don't have a lot of spare time these days. Any other Seattle based recommendations for that kind of work? Thanks, Phil
