  1. I HAVE INSTALLED A 5 SPEED TRANS IN MY '68 '02. WHEN THE ENGINE IS ON IT'S MOUNTS AND TILTED DOWN IN THE REAR, IT IS OFF TO THE LEFT OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE CAR. IT SEEMED IMPOSSIBLE TO GET THE TRANS INSTALLED ON THE ENGINE. FRUSTRATED, I REMOVED BOLTS FROM THE RIGHT MOTOR MOUNT AND WAS FINALLY ABLE TO GET THE TRANS BOLTED UP. THEN, RAISING THE REAR OF THE TRANS INTO POSITION, CENTERED BETWEEN THE ORIGINAL CROSS MEMBER ATTACHMENT POINTS WITH 1/2" CLEARANCE AT BOTH SIDES, THE RIGHT SIDE MOTOR MOUNT BOLT HOLES WILL NOT LINE UP WITH THE HOLES IN THE SUBFRAME. I ORDERED A NEW MOTOR MOUNT, THINKING THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE EXISTING MOTOR MOUNT ( HOPEFUL THINKING ). I WOULD APPRECIATE HEARING ABOUT ANYTHING THAT WOULD CAUSE THE MISALIGNMENT. HELP ! PHOTO OF THE PROBLEM AREA ATTACHED... THANKS, WILL
  2. HOW ABOUT MY 2004 MINI COOPER S IN TRADE , LOADED, PLUS SPORT, COLD WEATHER, HARMON KARDON BBS FORGED ALLOYS W/ MICHELIN PILOT SUPER SPORTS, COLD AIR INTAKE, 15% SUPERCHARGER REDUCTION PULLEY. HAS MANY, MANY NEW PARTS, INCLUDING SUPERCHARGER. CAR IS A VERY QUICK GO KART. ALMOST TOO RESPONSIVE ! WOULD MAKE A GREAT TRACK CAR. I'LL MISS IT BUT WIFEY CAN'T DO THE CLUTCH, SO I CAN'T USE HER LAND ROVER. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK, WILL

  4. got any idea what you want for the one needing work ?
  5. 02 tradition, im new to the group, so not sure of how to respond, but i do want the shift rod coupling. please tell me how to proceed. thanks, will
  6. I'M SEARCHING FOR AN EARLY 2002 "GEARSHIFT ROD JOINT" # 23 41 1 466 130. THIS IS THE COUPLING CONNECTING THE SHIFT LEVER ROD TO THE TRANS SHIFTING ROD. THERE ARE 4 SMALL PARTS THAT MAKE UP THE ASSEMBLY. IF YOU HAVE THE ONLY THE MAIN PART ( A CYLINDER THAT THE OTHER PARTS ATTACH TO ) I WOULD LIKE TO BUY THAT. THANKS GUYS...
  7. early single circuit brake calipers ! no one knows about those, just try finding a master cylinder, which i have suffered through. finally got help by calling Roger himself of Rogers Tii...he mus have connections ATE. also you might try Jamic.com, they have some hard to find stuff... in England but shipping is quick.
  8. thanks guys for the info on the 242/245 issue... i'm only looking for the "pin" that the throw-out bearing lever pivots on, and the small plugs that close off holes in the case. understanding which trans that i have will make things much easier to find in the ETK.
  9. i have a getrag 5 speed trans. how can i determine if nit is a 245 or 242 ? i need to order parts and need know to do that. it does have the added 69mm section to fifth gear overdrive. also there is a threaded bore on the top of the main case, not the vent, my guess is it is for then back-up light switch, is that correct ? thanks in advance... Will That email address IS MINE ! the other member is me...
  10. the VW rubber brake pipe grommets fit the one existing hole, by the way.
  11. i see you had to abandon the single piston caliper system, i'm in the same boat now. so, how did you run the second brake pipe and hose to the caliper ? i was thinking of opening a new hole in the inner fender, mounting the previously mentioned bracket on the body bracket where the long single hose joined the brake pipe and running two long hoses to the caliper just the way the old single hose was...?
  12. thank you but i already got one

  13. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH ROTA ALLOY WHEELS ? ARE THEY AN ALUMINUM ALLOY OR A STEEL ALLOY ? THEY LOOK GREAT IN THE PHOTOS, BUT DO THEY WEIGH A TON ?
