  1. Wire wheel'd and cleaned up the starter and Stahl header left over from my donor e21 to put on the 2002. My starter barely has a enough power to turn the car over so I'm hoping the e21 starter will be an upgrade. Sprayed the starter black and the header with flat aluminum ceramic header paint.

  3. Wiped the dust off and went to a car show today. There were a lot of really nice cars but only a small handful of euros. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Time to come clean - picked up another S14

    Your garage just keeps getting better and better! Beautiful car! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. Over the last week I've been chasing the cause of a terrible idle/ misfiring. Cleaned and swapped distributor, Installed pertronix, New cap, rotor, plugs and plug wires, Adjusted valves... Still same poor running condition... Was digging through old threads about sloppy idles and came across an 11yr old post from[mention=32049]inkasteve[/mention] saying that if your gauges were dead that it was most likely fuse #12 which also feeds power to the carb. My gauges also went out around the same time the poor running condition showed up. He was right! [emoji322] It did not look blown but a test light confirmed it was. I also just finished my hella light install today using an e21 switch in the factory fog light location with the o2 knob. I welded the brackets to the end of the bumper shocks and tucked them in. They cover the bumper holes pretty well. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  6. I had qtp cut outs and I did like them but the set screws in the valves would come loose every so often and rattle like nickels in a tin can. The novelty wore off after having to retighten them a few times. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. For the flywheel markings. You are referring to the hole in the top of the bellhousing right behind the starter right? It was kind of a pain to see down in there and this was all I can make out while using the inspection camera... Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. I popped the pertronix in the 084 distributor last night and dropped it in and got it running and got timing as close as possible based on sound and throttle response. I need to get a white paint pen to make a visible timing mark on the crank pulley before I can get it any better. The car feels more responsive than it was before but has a small amount of stumbling under full throttle and a little popping on decel along with a horrible idle. Almost seems like its running on 3 cylinders. I have a new set of plug wires to put on this evening and will probably do a valve adjustment at the same time (should have done it yesterday while valve cover was off)... Next project is definitely fresh exhaust with an o2 sensor installed because I really need to dial in my 38/38. That could very well be contributing to poor running conditions. Oh, should I keep the old blue coil on the car or swap to the silver that came on the parts car (where this dizzy came from)? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Tii engine $595 (not mine)

    Sounds like everything worked out exactly how it was meant to be. I don't mind posting good things up when I see them and either don't have the funds or time for myself. That way hopefully someone on here will buy it and then I get the joy of following the project. [emoji16] I have some what of an addiction to hunting craigslist. I have search bookmarks saved on my phone for many things but "flip cars", "old bmws" and "2002 parts" are ones that I check multiple times a day. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Got mine today. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. I tried the sucking method on the 084 dizzy I have now and I can't get it to move. There's no air pulling through. It's just solid like its seized. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. I agree, if the new one has play I probably will break the nicer one down and install some robbed parts from the 008. I'll definitely report back results. I'd like to test the vacuum pods also. I have a vacuum gauge already but need to pick up a hand pump from harbor freight today. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
