    Doesn't matter how you word things if you want people to join you in simplistic thinking. I'll bet that G2 filter he threw on there was made in China. Rationalize that.

    I had a double post here, but why waste a good reply.

    Here's something funny to think about. The people complaining here are the same type that will complain about how expensive and hard-to-get...

    The throwout bearing collar, which is what i think you mean by clutch sleeve, matches the pressure plate (aka clutch cover). It really has nothing to do with anything else. The reason is that...

    Leave the wheel on the ground, or on roll-on lifts when you do the work. Suspension loaded. The holes will all align without much work. The control arm will move back and forth pretty easily with...

    This guy did some really nice work with an S52. I have no idea what the BMW variations are, or mean.

    Seems odd that the fuse blows when the engine warms up. Might just be coincidence. And you didn't say if the lights are on when the engine is warming up. You might leave everything on that would...

    I attributed "soul" to concern for the well-being of the people using the product. Honda did not appear to have that concern. My lumping of all big corporations in to one big soulless entity is...

    Sorry, but I don't see this going anywhere good or interesting. I'm still wondering what the "work for free" comment meant though. We all do bad things for money? You gotta do what you gotta do to...

    I don't know a lot about what to look for in a restoration but the gap of the front wheels did catch my eye. Seems like the right wheel is further forward than the left, even though the wheels both...

    Your snide comment set me off. Then I edited my post to avoid the pissing match. But obviously too late. You're taking a superior tone with not much to back it up. Doesn't make for productive...

    philbar73 might be thinking of the fan clutch. Which you would probably be using if you're going back to stock, since the stock fan won't work without it.

    You didn't mention any details about the...

    The potentiometer would just provide the final path to ground. Each bulb's resistance stops a dead short from happening when the pot. is at zero resistance. So the theory that there's a short in...

    The seller says sale fell through, so the $17,600 must have been over the reserve number. No new pictures though, still hiding the front end damage.

    By manually you mean with a wrench on the damper bolt? I wouldn't trust those numbers, even on a freshly run engine. You'll get some leakage past the rings when things are moving that slowly. If...

    You could try new bulbs. Filaments wear and light output drops over time of usage. I saw a noticeable difference when I installed new stock headlights.

    Not terrible 78 280Z

    From the Portland Oregon area. Actually east toward Mt. Hood. Doesn't look bad, supposedly dry inside and it runs. Rims alone might be worth the price. A fairly cheap project car.

    Find some old open diffs and take their shims. You might also try to cross-reference the parts to other brands and models. For example, truck diffs might be plentiful. Of course, luck will be...

    Things expand when they get warm. Gaps can open up. That's all. The current flowing through the wire and fuse caused the parts to heat up, the gap opened, the current stopped, the engine died. ...

    I'm guessing that there's a stud under that rubber. Maybe someone missed a step during manufacturing and didn't clean up the leakage. Or somebody forgot to put the bolt in but poured the rubber...

    Timing could be a factor but it would most likely be a consistent problem. Does the no-start happen randomly, whether the engine is cold or hot, or is it only when hot?
