  1. I bought this from parc.de, about 10 years ago, along with a few other vintage/classic BMW posters. The caption above the poster mentions the styling of the 3200CS and that the car in the poster has almost 1 million miles on it Tim http://www.parc.de/v4/product_view2.phtml?id=05303148&format=SPEC4
  2. Group sizes 42 and 26r are the two most common for engine compartment batteries. I bought a group size 26r from Advance Auto for my NK 1969 2000 back around 2003 and still going strong when I sold he car in 2010, although I did remove the battery late November/early December for winter garage storage; kept the battery in my basement on a wood shelf., no charging needed at first start up come spring.

  4. Maybe get a new pushrod as well or look and see how much your current one has worn; new one can't be all that much more and Steve should have them. Tim
  5. Mac, Probably an early 1600/2002, could even be an early NK wiper arm, my '67 1800ti and '69 2000 had 13" chrome wiper arms. If all you have are 1600/2002 parts, the chrome 13" wiper arm you have I'd guess is from the later 60's years up to maybe '70 (?) Tim
  6. Generally, BMW's from 1966-1973; depends on the length I believe as far as what year; earlier models I think used a 13 inch arm/blade. Tim
  7. link not working, probably just through the steps when entering real oem; just put your vin in, scroll to brakes and then handbrake
  8. There's somehwat of an exploded view on real oem; http://www.realoem.com/bmw/partgrp-do?model=2002&mospid=47140&hg=34&fg=30 Tim
  9. Hmm, did he use pipe dope or teflon tape?!!!! definitely interesting. I'll actually be looking to replace my 'turlet' pretty soon., have to look at the Kohler line Tim
  10. Well, you'll get some input here but I like the tii exhaust manifold with the oem exhaust system; worked great for me on a Chamonix/marine blue '74 2002 I had., although that car after engine rebuild had 9.5:1, schrick 292, and also had the 5 speed conversion done by the original owner so I was pretty much set when I bought it, had a pretty worn 32/36 Weber so decided to go 38/38 and then bought the 38/38, tii exhaust manifold, and exhaust parts through Maximillian, this was summer 2001. The car had a header on it when I bought it (Stahl possibly ); anyhow, my vote's for the tii exhaust manifold and to stay with oem resonator/muffler Tim
  11. Possibly from an Opel, but what model? Tim
  12. Can it be traced by the vehicle's VIN? Tim
  13. I first called Carl, at La Jolla Independent and asked him if he had any NK front armrest caps. He thought originally he had a box of assorted NK trim pieces but after calling him back a few days later he said no-go. So I had ordered some brake pads/rotors/ rubber lines for my 1969 2000 as Wallothnesch was advertising a brake parts sale and then asked them to toss in a pair of the armrest caps; the 'repro' ones sent were very close, fit wise but still off a bit. It's interesting, the part# for those caps coincides with those for certain E-3, E-9 and E-12 Tim
  14. Chris, Some of the E-9, E-3, and E-12 upper armrest chrome caps will work for the '69 2000, I'm not sure which years for those though. A while ago when I had my '69 2000 I ordered a pair of those caps from Wallothnesch, the newer ones they sent me were off by just a bit, used a dremel to more/less get the correct fit. Tim
  15. The exterior of my house has the masonry/asbestos shingles, vertical grooves in the siding pieces; again, mid 1940's cape cod house and in the garage are some loose pieces of those shingles and also an unopened bundle, almost 70 years old now, left over when the house was built. Those asbestos/masonry shingles have always been white and I repainted the house summer of 2003, piece of cake, only prepping was a little hose rinsing of the exterior; used Benjamin Moore exterior white, still looks great. I think there are 3 houses on the street I'm on with the same type of shingles. My neighbor is one; gave him a couple of the loose shingles a few years ago as he had some damaged pieces, he did know to wet the shingles prior to cutting. Tim
