  1. Hey Matt, I'm up to link up. Would love to see your Agave. Weekends are good for me as well. Also, you guys are going to have to link me with this Lawrence guy, I'm done with BKM. -Scott.

    WTB: M10 ENGINE in the northeast.

    Hey All. Wanted to say thanks for the direction, and recommendations given here. I worked something out with my mechanic, so I am no longer in need of an engine. I'm still not happy about how things went with him, but I do have it back and running. I'll be looking to this community for guidance/help in the future as finding mechanics to work on these things gets harder and harder. If anyone has recommendations for mechanics in or near NYC. It'd be much appreciated. Otherwise, thanks all.
  3. Wow. That sounds harrowing. Glad to hear you're okay. I do not recommend going to the shop I am currently stuck in. BKM in L.I.C. is known for BMWs, but the proprietor is a nightmare. Has been working on my car off and on for years, but its only recently come to my attention how dishonest this guy is. Super-overpriced parts from junked cars mixed with intimidation and fast talking, and rampant lying make a bad combo. In trying to figure out my current situation, I've encountered two former customers who he has swindled in ways that confirm previous times he has swindled me, and my father both. Stay far-far away. Hoping to extricate myself from his garage without too much more financial, mental, or if it comes to it, physical pain. I myself have had good experience with Little Garage (Matt works on a lot of 02s), but is somewhat expensive, and an hour drive from Brooklyn isn't exactly convenient, but he does know the cars.
  4. Yeah, that's me! Had been trying to remember your name on here and find you, as I recently had a motor meltdown and remembered you'd mentioned you knew a few trustworthy mechanics here in NY. Too late now, but good to link regardless!
  5. I know the car, and have met the owner, but can not remember his name. Beautiful car. As for DUMBO and 02s, there are two that are regularly in the neighborhood, but garage on Jay st. One is mine (Silver '69), the other is a Sahara '74/'76, a friend's. Keep an eye out!
  6. I am currently looking for an m10 motor. A compression test would definitely help get you a few more dollars,... at least from me. If you're going to pull the motor sooner rather than later, I might interested.
  7. Just had my mechanic tell me my engine block is worn and that I need a new engine for my '69 2002. He's told me he's found a local engine from a 73 for $1900. Seems ridiculously overpriced, until I went online and had a hard time finding ones for sale. Ideally looking for something located in the Northeast. Please let me know if you know of any available. Also wondering whats the general feelings about putting amotor from an '84 318 into an old '02? Found a remanufactured one for a less than half the price, and with a guarantee, but seems a bit sacrilegious to me... Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated.
