  3. 4sp Getrag 242

    Still looking for a 4spd closer to home. Anyone do a 5sp conversion recently?
  4. You can do it. I bought a tii with absolutely no idea what I was doing a few years ago. In fact, changing the oil was as much as ever did on any car before I sorted out my tii. It took lots of reading and experimenting over a few months. The first couple of steps, which were critical for me, were to 1) replace all the ignition components and 2) eliminate vacuum leaks. Then proceeded to timing, injector cleaning, and tuning. A wideband O2 meter (AFR sensor) was great to have for the latter steps. It'll be worth it. Vince
  5. Are these red dot ALPINA struts??

    Thanks guys. Will be holding on to these until I do the suspension rehab in a couple of years.
  6. Are these red dot ALPINA struts??

    Interesting , thanks guys. Mark, No numbers on the insert that I can see. The dimensions are identical to the ones below (from one of your earlier posts) However the base of the strut is different to yours Mine are about 45 mm for both of the dimensions above. More questions!: - How can I determine the neg camber? - Guessing these are 'more valuable' than tii struts.. why? - If I can get them re-valved to a lower setting, then should be great for my street '72tii, no? (currently ok with the struts I have.. just thinking about future suspension rehab) -.... Or should these go to someone who is looking for these prices struts (for an enormous amount of $ !!) Vince
  7. Trying to verify what I have in my basement. These are tii struts, inverted shocks, with a red mark. Are these the fabled red dot alpina racing struts? How can I confirm? Lot’s of questions of whether they would be suitable for my street ‘72 tii if they are they real deal.
  8. What to do with these tii calipers?

    Thanks for the quick replies, gents! The article Buckeye attached has the pictures I was looking for as they are missing in the tech articles section.
  9. Hi everyone, Want to address brakes over the winter as I have a steering wheel shake on downhill braking and a slight pull to the right. Seems like a warped rotor from what I have been reading. Pretty sure I have a stock tii brake set up. Picked up a pair of used tii calipers in case they would come in handy. They were sitting around for a while. This is what one looks like. What should I do with them? (BTW, my neighbor does NOT have a pool!)
  10. ds chrome bumper tail

    Yep, got it. Was hoping this was front driver’s bumper end. GLWS, Vince
  11. ds chrome bumper tail

    Interested, but can’t see pics
  12. Thanks Simeon! Yes, plate still there. Making sense now... I guess it’s a bit loose. Im assuming I’ll need to take door card off to tighten?
  13. I have a very annoying issue with my driver’s knee moulding. Every time I close the door, it moves towards the back bit by bit until it falls off. Oh, and the cap on the end facing the rear is missing. Will replacing that piece resolve the issue?
  14. 4sp Getrag 242

    Hi all: Will need to replace my 4 speed trans at some point as it is beginning to crunch going into 2nd gear. Anyone have a 242 that is known to be in great shape? (No crunches, whines, hard to shift gears, etc). No junk yard finds, or second hand purchases please.... 1st hand knowledge of a 242 in great working condition with later synchros. Local preferred..NJ/PA/NY Thanks! Vince
