  1. Can you either post or send me a picture of everything out of the box. The phrase, "Don't know if any pieces are missing" and no pictures of the pieces gives me pause. Interested.
  2. Since it's in aluminum. Take a steel nut, use a mig welder and start welding out. Weld steel nut onto new weld shaft. Would I do this with the head on the car? No. Your extractor though is not going to allow you to drill straight on for a heli coil repair though.
  3. This is a factory exhaust manifold for mounting turbo's to BMW M10 engines. This one is low miles. Great shape. All flanges are flat and true. No cracks. I had it sandblasted and checked at a local shop. No broken bolts on the heat shield bosses. It's my spare and I no longer need it. There's not many of these 45 year old manifolds in good condition still around. Get a good one while you can. Buyer to pay PayPal fees and actual UPS shipping.
  4. These are factory mahle 121 bathtub pistons. 10:1 ti pistons. 1mm oversize. They retail for about $135 each. Includes Rings, Wristpins and retainers. I took them out of the box for pictures but that's it. I got a good deal on some Ross Forged and need to sell these to get the long rods for my build. Only one set at this price. Will take PayPal. Buyer pays actual UPS shipping and any PayPal fees.
  5. Hard to swallow pills. Most 02's are slow... A lot are broke.. There's nothing wrong with that but don't lie to yourself. If I hear you say "I'll catch / pass them in the twisties". I immediately assume your car is slow and you never did catch them. Bolt ons do very little. 02 guy puts on header, weber 40's and abarth exhaust, those are some nice community approved modifications. Miata puts cold air intake, header and loud exhaust. Must be ricer. Don't kid yourself. ///M stands for marketing. The nostalgia for this car is fixed and not expanding. It will never be on par with a classic 911.
  6. Paint the gasket with this. Apply. Done. https://www.amazon.com/Permatex-80019-Aviation-Gasket-Sealant/dp/B000HBM3QQ/ref=asc_df_B000HBM3QQ/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241895017383&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10874113154183510031&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9011449&hvtargid=pla-492732657309&psc=1
  7. I buy it now if you can help with freight to jacksonville,fl. My next trip to cali though won't be for a long time
  8. If you take a metal pick and start digging on the corrosion, you'll find it goes deeper than you think. when fixing that, you take a die grinder and get it back to bare uncorroded aluminum, then weld in that area. Then when surfaced you surface the weld into the head, it will be barely visible and not leak.
  9. you won't get 11.9:1 to run on pump gas. That setup is designed for at least 105. Raised floor headers would be a problem as well.. you can also tell because engine is running 38 degrees of advance. That thing will sound like a raped ape but not on street gas.
  10. let me be the bad guy and suggest pulling it as much as you can... then sanding the area.. skimming it with red bondo filler carefully and then using the dot brush method and touch up paint... bet once it's wetsanded and buffed you couldn't see it unless you looked for it... or drop the headliner and fix it properly.. still gonna look funky any way you try...
  11. I kinda feel bad in a way because I've sold him parts and stuff before...
  12. I've seen a lot of wrist pins and don't think I've ever seen a worn out wrist pin. More than likely if anything is worn out, it is the bronze bushing in the connecting rod.
