  1. Hey guys, So tonight I got to work on replacing my water pump and t-stat. Everything went smooth even through the fan and pulley. Once I got to the bolts on the water pump I noticed some things. First, one of my bolts was tight, but too long, leaving about a half inch of bolt sticking out. The second was the mixed head sizes (a few 10s, a few 12s and a 13 mm) and last was just how there were a few different kinds. So, can anyone tell me what bolts are the correct ones for my water pump? Are any of mine correct? It's obvious that one is wrong. And how can I go about getting the right ones? Hardware store? Thank you guys, I really appreciate it! Colby
  2. Hey everyone, I had my CSB go bad a little while back and I finally got around to replacing it. I purchased a new one online and got right to it. I found a thread on here that had some pretty vague instructions so I used that and did my best. After the job was done, I drove the short trip home and parked it. Driving it the next day, I started getting a furious ticking noise that turned into a thumping noise, so I immediately drove back to the garage and put it on the hoist. Sure enough, one of the bolts on the CSB had vibrated loose and fallen out. Yikes! So I bolted it back up, made sure everything was tight and drove around a little more. It seemed good so I assumed I just forgot to tighten them down the first time. About 2 days later, the ticking and thumping noises came back. Again, I lifted the car and found both bolts still there, but loose. What the heck? I must have installed the bearing incorrect. Does anybody have an idea for what I've done? I guess I will get under there this weekend and start from square one, taking the drive shaft out and trying to replace it again. That being said, does anybody have a link to a good, step by step process to correctly replacing the bearing? Thank you all in advance. Colby M
  3. No PMs received from either of you... Is it something on my end? Try emailing me at colbytmclain@gmail.com . Sorry for the trouble.
  4. I've got some e21 M10 parts that I figured someone might want on here. When I purchased my car, the previous owner had put a newer m10 from a 78 (I believe) M10 and gave me some of the extra parts from it. So here are a few things: Injection Manifold w/ Injectors Pierburg Fuel Pump Thermostat (not the greatest condition) Water Pump (No shaft play) I would love to put prices but I honestly have no idea what each item is worth. I will do some research and try to come up with some prices but in the meantime feel free to offer. Each item does not include shipping and will need to be covered by the buyer. Thanks for your interest! Colby
  5. And yes you're right. I did see that though I was thinking maybe someone on here could put them to good use!
  6. They were originally on this mans mk1 gti I believe
  7. Hey guys, Just thought I'd share this and see if anyone was interested. These are for sale on a local classified site in my town. The owner of the wheels lives only a few minutes away from me. I would totally buy them in a heartbeat but I'm looking for 15 inch wheels. This is a sweet and pretty rare wheel for a great price. They are in perfect condition. If anyone is interested I am willing to pick them up and ship them to you! I just think it's a great wheel! Let me know! Colby
  8. Awesome. I did LEDs on my roundie tail lights too. I really like the look.
  9. That's good news. Thanks, any pictures by chance? Sorry if you've already posted them.
  10. Hey guys, I'm looking at getting a set of Enkei 92's for my 72 2002. I really like the lower offset of the 8 inch wheels because of the deeper dish but I have heard thats a bit too much width for stock flares. I will be on Bilstein HDs and H&R lowering springs. Sooo I have a few options and need some help: First would be to sadly get both 15x7 et38 with the smaller dish and have less trouble fitting after spacers. Second would be to do a staggered setup and do 15x7 et38 up front and 15x8 et25 in the rear and get camber plates and spacers. Then I would roll my flares and with some tic tac-ing get them to fit. Third would also be less liked. Cut up my car and weld on some smaller sized flares (alpina small flares or mk1 rabbit flares) and see if I could fit 15x8 et25 on front and back. So these are the options I am considering. Ideally I would like to keep the stock flares but at the same time I really like the look of the et25 dish over the et38 dish. So with that, could anyone give me some advice? Different wheels? Small fender flares that look good? Would option 2 be possible with that suspension setup and rolled flares with some spacer and camber adjustment? All advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you Colby
  11. I've been planning on getting enkei 92s for a while. So yes I will probably get thoseThanks
  12. Yeah I assumed. Thanks for the help guys. Colby
