Re: garage floor paint

There us a product by Chomp called "Pull It Out" that will greatly reduce if not eliminate oil stains in concrete. Home Depot has it. Re painting your floor, the instructions for the 2-part paints I have used required etching the concrete surface with a muriatic-acid solution. I don't know how good ...

Re: First BMW without a spare tire ...

>but evidently, they may be giving up on the terrible RFT tires in the rest of the lineup as well. Does this mean upcoming models will have at least provisions for a spare wheel/tire? Or will we get regular tires and a "mobility kit"? Or maybe we will be expected simply to pull over and call our nea...

Re: FS: E30 Wheels and Tires

I am reducing the price to $580.

In the original ad I neglected to state why the wheels and tires are for sale: We no longer have our beloved E30 eta.

Email me at vic.njbmwcca@gmail.com.

Re: Anyone have a "better" code reader/analyzer to plug into

I second Ray's advice, and suggest you bite tbe bullet and spring for an OE coil. If you succeed in getting access to a scanner capable of displaying BMW's smooth-running values, you will have to have an assistant view them while the misfire occurs, as my observations are that the values will return...

Re: Differential rebuild experience

Although Ed is absolutely correct that the carrier preload is best set with the pinion out, you can get by with it in. Measure the total torque to turn the pinion with the old carrier in, then set the preload on the new carrier to match the torque value you recorded with the old carrier in place. Of...

Re: Does flywheel always need to be replaced with clutch?

>the old school sprung hub Sachs clutches were the best things ever bolted to a BMW single mass flywheel.< That bears repeating. I believe that one reason BMW went to the D-M flywheels was to reduce the gearbox clatter one hears when idling in neutral with the clutch engaged. Especially with modern ...

Re: Differential rebuild experience

You can make an inch-ounce-measuring device with a ruler and some fishing weights or large nuts and washers of known weight. Bolt it to the pinion flange and set preloads to your heart's content.
