If I didn't run 7 qts of oil I would get lifter tick while drifting for long periods of time. It is a common problem for auto x due to the pickup being in the front.
So basically it is a total bitch lol. I just read the writeup on pelican's site. I am going to continue to read before I attempt this. Have to save up some money to get the parts anyways.
Anybody have/know of a good head removal/install writeup for a non vanos M50? I've never done a twin cam head, they scare me. I really need to do a mls headgasket so I can get some power though. Is the bently manual going to cover enough where as it is a one off type of thing? Yoshi, any words of ad...
Today started out great then went to shit. Got a factory bmw manual for 84 318/325's. It is old but there appears to be some good information about the trannies and information about rebuilding diff's. I was happy about that so I decided to go and work on my car. Put my m-diff cover, went to press i...
The metal is 16 gauge I think. They need to be deburr'd but other than that they are nice. I would rather have to many than not enough. Anything I have left I will just save for the next project.

Definately the best thing ever when rebuilding an old car. I used to buy can after can of carb/brake cleaner and scrub with wire brushes for hours. Then I used my friends sandblaster, I never new what I was missing!! Saves hours of cleaning!
Sandblasted my diff cover tonight, went to take a pic of it and my pos camera died... If I didn't spend so much money on this car I would have a camera that is worth using by now.
Exactly, I work on my projects at my parents anyways lol. My IX and my vert are both at their house. The ver has been in their garage since the day I bought it.
