  1. RFI - Gauge Sizes

    Well... How many smoots? 😁
  2. Steve and Dave at blunttech will take care of you. Just email or call them. They work hard to support the community. I went thru a similar mechanical resto beginning a couple years ago, so I when I saw what you were quoting as wheel cylinder prices I was a bit aghast Calipers are really cheap also. I replaced everything hydraulic except the T at the rear lines. Done!
  3. Oh, and I leave off the pedal box sponge ;-) YMMV ;-)
  4. Rear brake wheel cylinders are $38 each. What do u mean "pistons?" https://blunttech.com/products?prod_category=N2 Shifter linkage issue is bracket adjustment, mainly.
  5. Alternator mount bushings turn to goo. Replace with polyurethane ones
  6. Welcome to modern parts 😊 I splice the old housing/wire onto the new condenser. Good luck,
  7. I think I'd agree, if not for the solid headrests and other items making it even less safe than our "roadworthy" cars. The (lack of) safety, practicality, and amusing description are why I posted. Probably good for driving from between the beach house and the beach. On a private road.:) The pickup was still very useful, in ways this is not. Cheers,
  8. Find a good shop and fix it. Have fun!
  9. Just thought I'd share http://www.ebay.com/itm/1973-BMW-2002-No-Reserve-/253210500008?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368 Cheers,
  10. So I bought a 2002...

    Looking good! Dig the shift knob! Cheers,
  11. It was expensive. $175 I think. But that's what I wanted to do at the time. They probably replaced everything but the housing... ...I hope!
  12. That were in Alabama Franklin's Alternators and Starters in Theodore There are likely local places in Tidewater....
  13. Test

    test the forum test
  14. M42 Engine Swap

    So now you're saying 160hp instead of 190. Wow, a 15% decrease in just one day.
  15. btw that's a non-Frigiking shift surround. GLWS.
