    Custom alignment shop thread?

    Curtis works kitty corner from this location. May just be closing the Selkirk shop perhaps.
  3. I have a pair of old 60’s muscle car 15x10 alloy wheels. Similar to a torq-thrust (width Measured on the barrel width externally is 11”) with a pair of N50-15 Pro Trac 50 bias ply tires. Tires hold air, one has three cracks on the inners sidewall Great for a classic cruiser or the such. If interested shoot me a message.

    2002 BMW Z3 Coupe- 3.0L six cylinder

    It did work originally. I assume it sold. You missed the boat mike.
  5. With the corvette it may be tougher to strap over the wheels. But if you do consider going that way I have a set of straps you can borrow for nationals. There are rail clips I’ve seen that work nice for adjusting the tie distance on trailers equipped with the track. @Jim Eh. May know where to get the tie downs you speak of, but I’d assume any trailer store, maybe even princess auto.
  6. Well the gaskets on the oil filter housing are notorious on the BMW’s. But that would show as milky oil and/or discolored coolant only. I think your looking at a head gasket. A compression and leakdown test can tell for sure.
  7. There’s vacuum/negative pressure in the cylinder when lifting out to shift. It’s probably pulling the coolant in then. You will probably be getting bubbles in the coolant under load.
  8. Oil from the head gasket leak wouldn’t present with a compression tester unless the leak was from oil passage to the combustion chamber. Since it’s visible it’s external which is a pain. Usually it’s the high pressure oil passage that runs up the side of the block (many motors) into the head that leaks between the passage and external world. It’s a leak that is dreadful but not that common. I’d check seals and other sources as testing this is impossible. I’d thoroughly clean the area and use dye and a UV light to trace it. Did you put in a high volume oil pump or shim/regear the stock one? I have a compression tester your welcome to borrow

    Seeking Tire Advice

    Having several gauges to cross check and a pyrometer would help greatly. I agree with Corey about the tire folding over on itself due to under inflation. When the tire is loaded the outside comes in, the inside may roll far enough for the sidewall to roll up/ pinch and ripple/rub causing the irregular wear? I’ve only see that sort of symptom on under inflated implement tires (lawn tractor tires at 10psi while horsing around) a gopro in slowmo under there could perhaps catch this... I was not there tim, no body damage I hope.
  10. Odd that carts get counted seperate. My bad, I figured a few cancellations already went through. If you want to bring your "a game" you stay away from the parties, just go downtown and get a nice dinner and turn in. Nothing nicer then a 6:30am course walk in a cool summer breeze.
  11. 1334 currently. It’s the best solo experience anyone could ever have.

    Gimil Event Help

    I’ll help as I can. Timing or where ever.
  13. All jdm automatically goes to Street Modified. You will be in SM-S With your modifications you’d end up there anyway in a nadm car

    Strange looking part

    It’s a shifter sub assembly. Never seen one break. Ties the shifter arm to the gearbox and keeps it isolated from the body via rubber bushings. https://www.pelicanparts.com/BMW/techarticles/E36-Shift_Bushings/E36-Shift_Bushings.htm good break down of what’s what in the photos. As for guibo’s, bmw, Lexus, and many other brands use them in place of a ujoint. It’s a fancy flex disc. They were used also on the independent drive shafts out of the diff on older euro cars like the lotus Europa and triumphs I believe prior to the cv joint
