  1. Strut won’t go all the way into housing

    Had the exact same thing happen two years ago...except I got my new Bilstien stuck. My tube was bent at the bottom. Like Simeon says...put a straight edge on the strut tube, near the bottom to confirm that it isn't bent. Then, clean the inside thoroughly like Mint suggests. Don't force it. Ed
  2. I'll keep the QR box for now. With the help of good friends, I have been able to keep the costs down...though selling that box would go a long way for re-doing the interior. I really like the way the car drives with that quick steering. Ed
  3. The outer rockers are going to need to be replaced too, Andrew. I knew the driver's side was bubbled, but the passenger side also is affected. I ain't skeered...I'm just happy replacement panels are available. Ed
  4. More hours spent on the CS these last few days. Removed tar pads from the interior floor pans yesterday. Driver's side gonna need two pans. Today was cleaning/degreasing the underside. ...yes, that's a QR steering box Ed
  5. Early motor mount

    Put one of these in my pile, please Ed
  6. Holy mackerel... S14 in a 2000CS!! I actually thought about that swap for about a day... this car is just too nice for me to do that, though. The plan is original paint and interior scheme, Granada single stage paint with black/black interior. Wood will be relaminated, new carpet and headliner ( I wish the original headliner pattern was still available as it is fancier than the reproduction used in e9s nowadays) Since the engine already has some performance work done to it (piano tops, bigger cam, valves, combustion chamber massaged, ports polished) I'm going to put some Weber 45DCOE15 & 16s on it and an H&B header to wring out its potential. Also, probably swapping in a 5 speed for the highway drives. Air conditioning would be nice, just not sure I can fit something in the center console and be satisfied with how it looks...we'll see.
  7. That's usually Ray's job as Mr Scope Creep... I have so many additional items I'd like to add... E brake upgrade could be one of them! Ed
  8. Pulley timing marks

    Oh really... ? Like this? 😎 Ed Z
  9. It is!! There's a bit of bubbling in the driver's rocker and small spots in the driver's rear floorboard. As the paint comes off, we'll know more. I'm not worried... it's solid. Ed
  10. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BLUNT!

    Happy Birthday, Steve. Thanks for all you do to support this group of whackos. Ed Z
  11. WTB: mechanical fuel pump for DCOEs

    You want a 90 degree Pierburg pump. They are available new. The BMW 2.8 & 3.0 CS uses the same pump. http://www.bimmerworld.com/BMW-Parts/BMW-Fuel-Pump-13311260677.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI27WNtu-y1gIVimSGCh3mmQmKEAQYAiABEgIGTfD_BwE I'm sure Blunt can get you one,too Ed
  12. Put a few hours into the car today. Wiring harness tagged and looped up out of the way. Gas tank out. Carpet out. Brake lines out. Good progress. I'll get after it this weekend with a shop vac, then power wash everything, especially the engine bay and undercarriage. Ed
  13. 911/912s are popular matches with the 2002, for sure. I kept it it within the family, but stayed vintage. 1967, 2000CS Ed Z
  14. ... always Mr. Specific I guess I should have written, " if anyone has a Serif Roundel shift knob, or any other Serif script Roundel parts, please contact me, via PM." Ed
  15. Looking for Serif script Roundel parts for my '67, 2000CS Does anyone have a shift knob like this one? Thanks, Ed
