Kill shifter slop. parts for B&M shifter?

Postby Yoshi » Thu May 09, 2013 11:13 am

So i sold the Z3 shifter I had. You basically punched the center console. No fun. I have an old B&M shifter I've had forever solid mounted to a plate that bolts to the chassis. The problem is, I seem to have lost one of the two inserts into the shifter insertion point thingy. Also, the output from the trans is a bit worn. So even with the solid mounted shifter, the selector rod will shimmy a bit.

Any ideas on killing that slop? Also anyone know where I can buy an insert for the shifter? I can't find a B&M site to buy it.

Electronic mail, most commonly referred to as email or e-mail since approximately 1993,[2] is a method of exchanging digital messages from an author to one or more recipients. Modern email operates across the Internet or other computer networks. Some early email systems required that the author and the recipient both be online at the same time, in common with instant messaging. Today's email systems are based on a store-and-forward model. Email servers accept, forward, deliver, and store messages. Neither the users nor their computers are required to be online simultaneously; they need connect only briefly, typically to an email server, for as long as it takes to send or receive messages.

Historically, the term electronic mail was used generically for any electronic document transmission. For example, several writers in the early 1970s used the term to describe fax document transmission.[3][4] As a result, it is difficult to find the first citation for the use of the term with the more specific meaning it has today.

An Internet email message[NB 1] consists of three components, the message envelope, the message header, and the message body. The message header contains control information, including, minimally, an originator's email address and one or more recipient addresses. Usually descriptive information is also added, such as a subject header field and a message submission date/time stamp.

Originally a text-only (7-bit ASCII and others) communications medium, email was extended to carry multi-media content attachments, a process standardized in RFC 2045 through 2049. Collectively, these RFCs have come to be called Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME).

Electronic mail predates the inception of the Internet and was in fact a crucial tool in creating it,[5] but the history of modern, global Internet email services reaches back to the early ARPANET. Standards for encoding email messages were proposed as early as 1973 (RFC 561). Conversion from ARPANET to the Internet in the early 1980s produced the core of the current services. An email sent in the early 1970s looks quite similar to a basic text message sent on the Internet today.

Network-based email was initially exchanged on the ARPANET in extensions to the File Transfer Protocol (FTP), but is now carried by the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), first published as Internet standard 10 (RFC 821) in 1982. In the process of transporting email messages between systems, SMTP communicates delivery parameters using a message envelope separate from the message (header and body) itself.

I could be wrong, but I think Yoshi was pointing out your grammatical error by putting "an" before "e-mail" without another word such as "message" or "attachment" after it. "An e-mail message" would be correct, whereas "An e-mail" is not correct. You don't get "mails" in your mailbox at home, do you? You don't get "e-mails" either, you get "e-mail". Plural and singular are both the same.

Or he could just be too lazy to e-mail them. :-P

edit - I have been e-mailing since before 1993 so you should check the dates in your research. Maybe you meant 1963?

Ok gramatically speaking, 'an' does not denote plural does it? As far as I am aware, 'a' and 'an' effectively mean the same thing, you just use 'an' when the following word starts with a vowel. 'A email' just sounds weird, just like 'a artist, a ant,' etc, just as the opposite also sounds funny; 'an camera, an BMW, etc.'

Those were 2 separate points I was making, I guess I should have been more clear about that from the start. I was pointing out the 2 biggest misuses of the word. Yes, "a e-mail" is even more incorrect than "an e-mail", but both are incorrect period.
