  1. I have a set of MiM 1900 15x7 4x100 ET13 mag wheels and they appear reasonably sort after for the classic e30 so I was wondering what they would be worth Any ideas? picture is an example
  2. I'd be interested in a medium case LSD, could you let me have some more information are they the proper helical/torsion LSD or the american snow diffs
  3. Its a case of what is going to fit without major changes, it had been mentioned to me that the chassis has to be modified to make the medium case fit. Also I 'm running a mildly modifies m44 engine and thought as the medium case LSD are like the holy grail to find so thought the small case that no one really wants would be easier to get hold of initially. First issue is getting the ratio correct as was running a 316 gearbox and 444 diff and it was maxing out in 5th half way down the straight, left the line like a rocket though!
  4. Looking for a small case LSD for my 318 compact Race car, anyone got one tucked away in their shed Please let me know
  5. As photo I'm after a subframe cross brace contact 0210493209 Cheers Paul T
  6. The VW Golf is as follows It's a 1989 mk2 3 door 5speed manual golf small bumper white 1.8 Digifant , It had brand new radiator just before Ibought it 2 years ago. I have done: Full recon head, new head gasket ans hesd bolts De-cat & 4-2-1 manifold Full sach clutch kit with skimmed fly wheel Chipped mk2 GTI ECU Full gear selection bush kit including bottom of selector Just had new front pads. It will come with front & rear vr6 cloth seats that need fitting. It has a couple of wheel options depending what takes your fancy - 14' Steels in realy good condition or early mk2 spoked mags or there is a set of 5 P slots but they need tyres. It will be sold with a new WOF as REGO.

  10. My blue E30 320 auto 4 door is for sale. I have already changed the power steering rack. It was waiting for a waterpump. Have replacement front seats to replace the frayed thread bear ones. Also have a replacement bonnet strut. It ran really nice but was emptying water from the waterpump, I found part of the thermostate missing and think thats what killed the water pump Reg on hold and no WOF but wouldn't take much, approx from memory 220k km Will need to be trailered, break it of make it your choice but whole car must go, too many project and I'm getting ear ache. Offers around $450 - $400 Anyone wanting to switch sides I also have a 3door white mk2 VW Golf offers around $1500
  11. A friend is rebuilding an E36 318 standard auto after having the head rebuilt. We were in the process of putting it back together today and noticed as we were about to do the timing belt that when you slot the cam pulley onto the end of the cam, there is a small notch on the internal radius of the pulley that has to line up with a recess in the end of the cam. Once slotted together there is almost 2 timing belt teeth backwards & forward movement as the notch wobbles about in the slot. Should there be a spacer or jacket of some kind that centrally positions the cam pulley notch into the slot on the cam, because as there is just a single bolt securing this in place at the axis as soon as the engine is started it's going to slip. Please advise
  12. If the little tw*ts don't get the message that racing and that this sort of thing shouldn't happen in residential areas they're too bloody thick & loosing a few won't even get noticed.
  13. Thanks Guys Is the cam belt & tensioner a Repco or SuperCheap item or more specialist?
  14. You'd have been stood in a similar place to me then mate, never in the kop, Peter Reid was my hero as a kid always been Evertonian Blue
  15. As a BMW newbie I am slightly green in these matters. But I have just purchased a '90 320 6cyl which had been stood unused for a while, before picking up the original owner started her up and water came flooding out of the waterpump area. He suggests that there is a seal that can perish if unused causing it to fail. a. Is this true? If yes where will I get a replacement seal? b. If not where in the Glenfield area will I be able to get a new waterpump or refurbed item that is not going to break the bank, as I also need a number of other items.
