  1. Can the divots in the worm gear be filled and smoothed? GL,
  2. Douse it with a good penetrant, too. Can you get needle nose vise grips on it? Good luck,
  3. Parts needed for unfortunate incident

    Have you tried blunttech? 😁
  4. The ballast resistor purpose is to lower the voltage to the coil when the car is running. During cranking it is bypassed and 12v assists to provide greater spark.
  5. Well. Don't be too hasty. Read this first. Good luck,
  6. What to do with my 1600?

    You may want to get that on a lift and have a close look at everything structural. I'm not certain it is safe to drive. Good luck,
  7. As Hal intimated, pull the air cleaner and see if the choke butterflies are closed. And yep, a hot ballast resistor is a feature. The heat is where the excess voltage is going. (Don't worry much about it). That said, that particular resistor is a design I'm not familiar with seeing on a 2002. That said, it may be okay. I don't know what the Pertronix is liking to see. Keep us posted. GL,

    Jealousy will get you nowhere, Steve! I wish I could say that I have a spare badge, but alas, I don't believe I do... This may help, though! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Frigiking-BMW-2002-1602-E10-AC-Console-Parts-Center-Vents-Air-Conditioning-/282601359360?hash=item41cc5a8800:g:oJgAAOSwIIhZh7r5&vxp=mtr Or, this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Matchbook-Frigiking-Car-Air-Conditioning-RV-Fullerton-CA-40-strike-FULL-/311927966167?hash=item48a05b09d7:g:isEAAMXQxKxSELUM ;-) EDIT!

  14. Heater only Luke warm at best

    Well done! Mike S had suggested attaching the cable to the heater valve before bolting the valve back in place. ... I need to plumb my core back in; I haven't done that after rebuilding and installing it... Cheers,
