  1. Car is sold. Now to start looking for my next project.
  2. Update. I think I have a buyer for the car. Unfortunately he’s in California and I’m in Pennsylvania. I had a PPI done here locally and he’s satisfied that the car is as described. Any advise on a safe way to complete the transaction?
  3. I wont be showing at Shadyside but will be attending. Hope to see you at the PVGP
  4. Selling my 1974 Tii 2781168 all numbers matching car. The car was purchased from the original owner in 2013. I have service history from new including all service stickers from the BMW dealer through all the parts I have added over the past 6 years. The car is in its original Riviera color but was repainted in 1996. I have done much to preserve the car. Front and rear suspension has been updated, front brake calipers rebuilt, rear brakes updated with new backing plates, cylinders, shoes and drums. New master and slave cylinder with SS hose. The interior was refreshed with new carpets and everything else cleaned and refreshed. The dash shows no cracks. The car is mechanically ready to drive anywhere at anytime. The motor was professionally rebuilt in 1994 at 89K miles, receipts included. The current mileage is about 125K so the motor has about 36K on the rebuild. All hoses, electrics replaced and the distributor rebuilt/recurved by Advanced Distributors in 2019, O2 sensor added in 2019 so the car is properly tuned. New rear seals in the transmission, guibo with BMW hardware in 2019. The paint shows well and the trim is generally good. There are defiantly some blemishes that are present but it adds to the patina. People mistake the car as original paint etc. Things that still need done; door seals, clock repair (ran for 6 years after I repaired but now has stopped), windshield (some delamination in corners). Hagerty "good" valuation is $27.6K so I'm looking to sell near that price but am open to reasonable offers. If you are in the Pittsburgh area the car will be at the Vintage Gran Prix July 20-21. I would like the car to go to an enthusiast and I'm hoping to sell locally but will consider working with any buyer.
  5. I had a similar idle issue. The issue was fouled plugs due to a rich condition. Cleaned the plugs, added O2 sensor and properly tuned the car. Now runs better than it has since I’ve owned it. Now Idles smooth.
  6. I would replace the guibo, use BMW hardware and install in the recommended orientation. I just went through replacement and thought it was the worst project I have done on my car. Wouldn’t want to repeat. I also marked the nut locations relative to bolt to visually see any movement from tight position.
  7. I had a similar issue with my 74. Take a look at any slip in the linkages especially between the gas pedal to the pivot on the firewall. Once I took out slop I was able to properly adjust AFR.
  8. Finally got a chance to drive the car after loosening the exhaust connections and transmission bracket and replacing the muffler hangers. Sound is gone. Not sure what causes the sound but it’s gone.
  9. I did have the down pipe off. I just got done loosening the transmission hanger and re tightening. It didn’t seem to move but who knows. I’ll let you know.
  10. I will check tonight when I check the exhaust system to be sure.
  11. I believe the tires are fine. Relatively new but worth a look.
  12. Thanks for the quick response. I did that first. Shook exhaust and did take out slop by tightening the worn rubber hanger with some rubber. I will verify again just to be sure.
  13. I searched extensively and found a couple suggestions but am not sure they will address my current issue. Over the winter I replaced the rear transmission seals and guibo. During installation I was sure to verify driveshaft, output flange alignment etc. I even made an alignment tool to verify driveshaft alignment. The differential was loosened and moved rearward as suggested. The sound is like the sound you get when opening the windows of a modern car when the air reverberates in the cabin. There is no odd vibrations or metallic sounds. It occurs at 25-30 mph weather in gear or coasting down hill. One observation is that it seems to improve with time. After a long drive it is much better. My thought is that it may be exhaust related. The rubber hanger at the rear is worn out so I needed to add a rubber spacer to take up the slop, new part ordered. I did find a short post about the transmission exhaust hanger and binding but haven’t checked that yet. Any thoughts appreciated.
  14. Snorkel or no snorkel on a Tii. Who cares.
