    Intermittent wipers?

    Yeah, your wiper relay might be worn a bit after 40 years... so maybe it's not able to attain the proper wattage before kicking on in the intermittent position without an improved ground. let us know!

    Intermittent wipers?

    never fixed, though never attempted to fix. Probably the relay. find a buddy with a parts car and buy it off of him/her.... cause jeeeezus they're like $300 from BMW. Good luck!
  3. Located in Portland. Brand new in box. Never mounted or even taken out to the garage ... Bought them from Parts Geek... they are a bunch of phonies... don't order from them cause when you want to return something they NEVER EVER pick up their phone. Anyway, have these left over from a project... so here they are for significantly less than I paid. $200 local pickup $225 Shipped to US. Email me at nickymono at g mail.com

    Dirty, but totally functional. Could use a trip through the dishwasher. $30 shipped.
  8. Nice set of blue seats, but the driver's seat has a couple holes.. Totally functional. Mechanisms are in fine working order and springs are in good shape. Weak point is the vinyl.... so you should recover them is swanky suede or something. $100 + shipping You are welcome to arrange your own shipping - cause I am not sure how to deal with such a thing or find a box big enough.... Thanks! e maail nickymono at g mail

    FS: Repa front seat belts; all new parts

    k, make a sticky.
  13. But in the US you buy oil in quarts. So buy 5 quarts - fill it till it hits the top line on the dipstick. Use 20W-50... or if you can find it, straight 50 weight. But whatever, you'll figure it out.
  14. Hey dudes, I'm pretty sure I've determined that I need a new starter. It worked fine for a looong time, but out of the blue it decided to just slowly chug. It sounds tired with a slow turn to it... it starts the car about 5% of the time. Otherwise it prefers the rollstart approach. So first, do you think this is the starter? Battery seems fine as it runs everything else with no problems and the car runs great after rollstarted. I've tried to jump it with a couple vehicles, and the slow grind of the starter doesn't speed up. I've also tried jumping it straight to the starter... still chuuug. So I've got a line on a re-man Bosch starter (remanufactured by bosch itself), that could be overnighted for $95. Is that a good deal? Should I look elsewhere? Thanks!! Nick
