Re: Vanishing coolant discovered

It looks like a PITA to get at. You might have to pull the entire unit? The gasket appears to be N/A. Looks like a thick and odd shaped gasket that you might have to fabricate? Better set aside aside a few days to do that repair.

77 E12 motor into a 77 630SI

Could the motor just be swapped in or would the electrical "brain" from the E12 have to be installed as well? Any other issues?

Install Getrag 5 speed to 1985 735i Automatic ???

Would this trans bolt up to the E23 motor... flywheel? I realize it would be a lot of work in regard to clutch pedal mods. Trying to to see if I can salvage some E12 parts to a solid 85 E23 with a bad trans. Any thoughts?

Re: Output Shaft Removal?

Well i got the output shaft out.I got the filister head screws to move by putting a a floor jack under the breaker bar with the 8mm socket. Only rounded off two screw heads that I ended up cutting off. Are there no backyard mechanics on this forum or does everyone just take their car to the shop???

Output Shaft Removal?

I have a parts car that I am trying to remove the output shaft from so I don't have to buy a new one ($450). The filister head screws are "really" locked in there and I am soaking the hell out of them with PB Blaster. They are 8 MM screws as far as I can tell? I tried breaking them free with a 3/8s ...

Well I did take the black plastic relay out of the 77 and installed it in the 76 and it fired right up so it's all good. :D

Private message folder?

The folder is 100% full and I can't receive new messages until I empty it. Tried doing that as instructed but no luck. Tried to contact First Fives Peter Florence about the problem but have not received a response?
