  1. @tjones02 has a Getrag in his 1600-2, you may want to check with him, he mentions the mounting ears difference on the '84 and it's lack of a speedometer drive - and Mike's 90mm length difference, if I'm not mistaken, is for that for the Getrag 245. I'm not sure how the 1600-2 driveshaft (and when the change-over from the earlier driveshaft happened in the 1600-2) compares with the 2002, but in a 2002 with the 240 you can use the '84 driveshaft with no modifications if you relocate the center shaft bearing mount point. You can pull that off because of the splined slip joint in the '84 driveshaft - the 240 is short enough that it works, the 245 is too long, so you can't use the e30 4 cylinder driveshaft with the 245.
  2. Weigh it, reference the current price of gold, and multiply by 1.5....... 🙂
  3. Aardvarc racing carries a good selection of seat parts. https://www.2002parts.com/bmw/recaro-seat-parts.html
  4. Given you sons background maybe he's the person to look into who it was that was modifying kugelfischer pumps to use a stepper motor in place of the cone to control the injection. I can't seem to recall right now other than I think they were UK based. If you're really committed to playing with a hotter engine while keeping the mechanical injection that could be fun to explore.
  5. Contact eBay seller vintage-benzine-garage, you'll want a partial PL04 kit - he'll sell you just the gaskets that you need.
  6. You'll let us know by pm if we did/didn't make the lucky 7?
  7. I found these M8x1. 25x60 from Amazon - I haven't bought them yet, I want to rebuild my tii calipers https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079RN42LD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_cF4ZFbX3FGP9A?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 I haven't found bolts with a Ribe head. When you ask about a "star" head, do you want Torx, Ribe, hex, or something else?
  8. I'm hoping to join the "just drove my 74tii for the first time" club sometime this month.
  9. Thanks to everyone who brought up not using stainless wire - galvanized and chromed metals can also be added ro to that list. I was quite remiss in not mentioning this - using them results in the formation of hexavalent chromium, which is some really nasty stuff - it's what the movie Erin Brochovich was about.
  10. I think the next car I do is going to involve an aboveground pool, a welder, and some railroad spikes, and I'll just let electrolytic rust removal gnaw away at the whole thing. My current 5 gallon bucket setup works great (shown here with a hand crank ice cream mechanism), but I'm thinking bigger, I'd recommend a rectangular tote to start. I've been using it on car parts, but happened to grab the ice cream piece to show this off to the local Houston 02 owners in our WhatsApp group. It gets down into pits, and doesn't remove anything except the rust - and if you leave it too long, it just stops and doesn't do anything more. About the only thing is that the part will flash rust if nothing is done to stop it once it's cleaned. I have a gas tank planned for this weekend, I'll follow up with posts of it. If you're interested, Google\YouTube "electrolytic rust removal" and you'll find tons of info. An old desktop pc power supply with a 10 Ohm 20W resistor connected to it can be used as a cheap source for a power supply if you don't have an old battery charger - you only need 2-3 amps @12 volts. This was after 3 hours IIRC - test.mp4
  11. I'd committed early on in this thread on wanting on, just chiming it to state that prepayment isn't an issue for me and that I'm still interested in one.
  12. Amen to the recommendation on that light, I really like mine.
  13. Ok, so I'm replacing the fuel pump in my 74 tii as part of my "get it back on the road" overhaul, as I hasn't run in about 10 years. I'm following the write up from my2002tii.com/tii-fuel-pump_how-to.html, where it's suggested to use some garden hose split lengthwise to shim between the new pump and the bracket. The difference in diameter is about 7mm - seems a bit large for the suggested garden hose shim. Has anyone come up with a better way to securely mount the 5 series pump into a tii bracket? (and if I'm not mistaken, it could just be mounted without the surge canister - but I like to try to keep things looking somewhat like they were). Barrett
  14. Is this a replacement for 21510670070 "gasket ring", #4 in the picture below?
