  1. OK, I ordered the rebuild kit from Blunt Tech with new clamps and water hose. I'll check out the how-to and report back. thanks
  2. When I did the pressure check, it felt like the coolant was dripping from the bottom of the valve. I'll do another test and check that top clamp. whether the cover is backwards, I do not know. The heat has worked minimal at best over the last two winters of ownership. The PO said he rebuild the heater box so I assume he rebuilt the valve. When I do pull this valve, I'll replace the clamps. they look a little suspect. thanks Paul
  3. A puddle of coolant under the car, passenger side, near the area of the fire wall and a pressure test of the cooling system revealed my water valve to the heater box is leaking. It looks like it's been rebuild before, but not sure how well. Question: Are the rebuild kits good ($90), or shall I buy a new valve ($295)? I don't mind the extra cost as long as it's worth it. Also, is my valve on up-side-down? Shouldn't the arrow point towards the cabin? Does it matter? Thanks Yes, I am aware of the rebuild page

  8. I've acquired what I believe is a working Tii clock (no orange/red and has the crosshairs). I'd like to install it into my '74 non-tii dash. Is there a how-to out there? I spent about an hour going through old threads in this forum, but didn't find much. I'm wondering if I can cut the hole and install it without removing the dash? is there a suggested hole size? which wire to get power from, or run a new one (if so, from what). From what I can tell, it's one for power and one for ground. This clock has a harness with connector and small metal bracket. one of my thumb screws is missing, but can probably locate something to replace it. thanks for your tips, links and direction
  9. done. BTW, a colleague of mine was just hired by the Tire Rack to do UI/UX design. Hope they haven't highjacked your idea. Good luck!

  12. changed the spark plugs and ignition wires. Holy cow! it's a "new" car!
  13. I'l take a light switch if you still have one
  14. Myth. BMW colors follow similar color choices as other leading brands of the day. If some guy told me it was for tax breaks, i'd spit my coffee laughing.
