  1. Do you still have the radio? Please let me know either way!
  2. How often do you go to the Seattle area? I live in Kirkland and work in Redmond.
  3. Hey all, I am looking for a spare early solex (36-40 pdsi) for my 1971 2002. I am hoping someone here has one that is in good usable shape that I can run while I rebuild the original. Please let me know. You can also email me at [email protected] Thanks, Chris
  4. Thanks Steve, I just moved so the car is getting shipped right now. I'll pull it out and report back on the number when the car arrives. Cheers, Chris
  5. I have one that I believe is from 1967 in my 1971. It looks like this although the face plate is a bit different and the outer knobs are chrome. Anybody have any info on it? I wish I had the original to my car but the previous owner removed it before I towed the car off his property. This one was given to me by a friend, although it doesn't work. Still looks good.
  6. Thank you for the info. I don't think my carb is warped or there is a hole in the lid. The throttle shaft is likely worn however as my car has over 100,000 miles on it. I haven't seen a rebuild kit with a new throttle shaft however, and I haven't seen any good factory original replacements online. Any suggestions? the symptoms of my car is that I cannot set the mixture accurately to get it to idle properly. After the car warms up, it runs and idles worse. It also stumbles when I get back on the throttle after coasting or cruising. I am guessing this is due to a clogged jet. Like I mentioned, I want to keep the car factory original so I will need a complete rebuild kit, or a carb that is in good working order while I work on mine.
  7. Hello All, I have the original Solex 40 PDSI carb on my 71 2002 (all original) and the carb is sputtering to the point where it definitely needs a rebuild (rough idle, stumble when rolling onto the pedal after coasting). I was wondering if there is anything I can do to the carb while I rebuild to give the car a little more oomph. I am well aware that I can achieve this with a weber setup, but the car is all original and I want to keep it that way. I have heard you can switch jets out on these solexes, although I feel like the main limitation of this carb is the lack of airflow due to the single barrel. Thanks in advance, Chris
  8. Hey Guys, I'm looking for the early style fuel pump for my 2002. It is the kind without the spring in the bottom. A rebuild kit would also suffice. Thanks, Chris
  9. Hey Guys, I'm staying in Bellevue for the summer, and unfortunately I didn't bring my 2002 with me. I miss having something to work on, so if anyone in the area needs help with theirs, please let me know; I would love to help however I can. Along with BMW's, I have experience with Triumphs, MG's and Lotus but am willing and happy to work on anything. Thanks, Chris
  10. Flux core will get really hot, It will burn right through your body panel. I know a few people who have done sheet metal with flux core but they are all professional welders.
