  1. They're marked 5 1/2 JK x 14.
  2. I'm so sorry for your loss. The car's value may be anywhere between $5000 and $25,000 in my opinion, mostly depending on how complete and how original, and how rust-free it may be. Photos will go a long way in allowing board members to assess value. Your best bet for the highest sale price may perhaps be eBay. Post what you can and you'll get assistance here. Best,
  3. Cool! But, what were they stock on... since '02's came with 13's? Cheers,
  4. You can reverse bleed the slave this way, using a Harbor Freight ;-) pump oil can. https://www.harborfreight.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?dir=asc&order=EAScore%2Cf%2CEAFeatured+Weight%2Cf%2CSale+Rank%2Cf&q=oil+can I'd think you could do the MC also. I think! Cheers,
  5. So, were you able to persuade the telltale to work? You might look again at the grounds at the rear lamps, and the VR securing bolt "ground." I made a few harnesses with diodes, to run power direct from the individual turn signal lamp fuses to the telltale. Problem solved. Tho not how BMW intended. Let me know if you want to go that route. Cheers,
  6. Something to do with sunroof or not, I think. 😊
  7. Put that battery under the seat, where it belongs! 😀
  8. I stuck LED bulbs in my actual licence plate lights, Tom. They are rather directional and too bright! FWIW! Cheers,
  9. Lookit them bell bottoms!
  10. The taxi stopped with a jerk,and Danco_ got out. OP, at what revs does this occur, and in what gears? IOW, if you are, don't lug the motor at low revs. Please expound. Cheers,
  11. What's the history? Try and isolate with a stethoscope (or screwdriver). Pull each plug wire individually and see if the sound/running changes. Have a look under the valve cover too. I'd look at the pulleys and also maybe pull the flywheel inspection plate and listen.
  12. Hold on! I know someone with a working early clock who wants to swap with a late clock! PM sent
