  1. Looks more like a petrified bone lol.
  2. Ireland Engineering sells a kit to upgrade to the bigger 250mm 320i drums Here. I would also suggest upgrading the front brakes to 320i vented disc rotors with e12 calipers.
  3. I was going to say those look like something you would find on an 80s Cadillac or Buick. They look like they had center covers that fit in the 3 indentations on the inside of the ring.
  4. First use small plastic prying tool to raise ends of top chrome strip. Next pop ashtray out and put hand in hole. Slowly and gently wiggle the whole panel up and back and forth.
  5. The factory blue book calls for loctite 573 to seal case sections together. You can also use loctite 574 which is the same stuff but cures faster. Don't use RTV it can get inside the transmission and cause problems. Gaskets are available but not recommended unless you have large leaks.
  6. Don't fix it if it isn't broken. For a car designed in the mid 60s it has some of the best steering available at the time and is better than most modern rack and pinion. Rack and pinion steering is cheaper and easier to produce but that doesn't make it better.
  7. Moran Motosport 751 Folger Ave. Berkeley, CA 94710 (510) 548-7171
  8. If you look at the pictures the pistons have 8.3 painted on them so they are not tii pistons
  9. The 2l crankshaft is forged and has 8 counterweights. The 1.8l crankshaft is cast and only has 4 counterweights.
  10. I think you're thinking of the rear subframe mounts that are too soft, but I've noticed OEM BMW parts have gone down in quality in the last few years.
  11. The fact that there is power to the starter and lights but no cranking leads me to the ignition switch because it's the weakest link in the starting system. Also this happened to me last year.
  12. I would guess ignition switch fried itself.
  13. I think I wouldn't bother with that head if it's been modified. I would get pistons first then buy appropriate head for pistons.
  14. First I would suggest reading as much as you can about weber dcoe carbs. There are several books on tuning webers available. You might just need to adjust them, but the biggest mistake you can make is messing with something you don't understand.
  15. Optimas have gone up in price since I bought my last one. They want $250 for the yellow tops now. When I bought my last one a few years ago it was $150. But they are deep cycle gel batteries that last for 10+ years and are almost bulletproof.
