  1. Which model is it? I have an original Frankfurt in my '73 Tii date coded correct, I can measure when I get home...but there are sellers on Ebay which sell the radios and knobs I would look there. Sent from my STV100-2 using Tapatalk
  2. It must be good, it's "not legal for street use" Sent from my STV100-2 using Tapatalk
  3. I use valvoline VR1 racing oil, it's high zinc for the flat tappet people Sent from my STV100-2 using Tapatalk
  4. I too used B-Quiet, but if I had to do it over I would use a combo of Lowe's tar stuff and some foam layer stuff Sent from my STV100-2 using Tapatalk
  5. Like ray said, it might be running too rich now, which can also cause a stalling problem. Previous owner may have messed with timing and mixture to cover up the vacuum leak. I would follow the Tii setup procedure to start with a good baseline and then proceed from there. Sent from my STV100-2 using Tapatalk
  6. There is room for a AAA card right next to the lug wrench and it doesn't make any noise over bumps ) Sent from my STV100-2 using Tapatalk
  7. A full picture of the entire actual car might help Sent from my STV100-2 using Tapatalk
  8. Buy the Bosch pump for the 5 series, I am very happy with my conversion
  9. Other

    I have the same reflectors. I think they were US only but I obviously know nothing I will say that I don't think the air intake was ever that glossy even when brand new
  10. I had similar noise, belt dressing on alternator belt and tightening it caused it to go away permanently
  11. Have you checked the battery voltage? Dead battery can cause this. Check voltage at terminals should be at least 12+ volts. When running, should be 14+ volts. A weak battery will cause the car not to run, especially if the alternator is not charging while driving.
  12. I switched back from HotSpark to points in my Tii, it is the only thing that makes it run correctly. I carry spare points and condensor, a lot easier to install and find at a car parts store than a Petronix
  13. I'll probably be in Portland that weekend.
  14. NGK BP6ES I order mine from Amazon, make sure it is the non-resistor plug. BPR6EGP The "R" means resistor I would start by checking the fuel pickup screen filter in your tank. If the fuel filter was rust colored it definitely means there may be some rust in the tank, and after a bit of driving, it can concentrate on the pickup screen and starve the engine. When it sits for 20 minutes, the rust falls to the bottom of the tank and the cycle starts over again. The correct plugs may help to run a bit hotter and burn off any oil that is leaking past the valve guides, leading to less misfires. I also found solace in non-resistor performance plug wires, but I have a 2002Tii so you may not have to go this route.
