Found out the slave cylinder is gone, but the starter might be alright. We'll see, i'm going to put the M50 in the red 318 this weekend then maybe tackle this thing after. More pictures later.

I'm torn on what to do with the seats!! It looks like I have a 70's sofa in the back.

It came with a pretty sick alpine deck too.

Hmm, is a ballin-ass interior worth losing the ski pass to?

(if you'd consider trading interior for a tan one, LMK. The driver side seat is having issues (tilt is broken) but the seats look great, no holes, etcetcetc. Have whole interior (doorcards, etc).

p.s. where the hell do you find these steals man?

Sell it to me right now. hahahah I love E30 non sunroof. Sick deal! The seller is crazy.

BTW, How is the other side of the car?

SamE30e
02-25-2009, 12:26 PM
The same. It needs new front fenders and a couple spots of rust that are forming fixed, then it would be mint.

I don't understand why everyone is so crazy about cloth seats!? :huh?:

Sport fabric seats are rare. Also in summer/winter leather is a bitch. Let alone that our cars are old and worn/beaten up leather looks bad.

Also no sunroof is an other way not to give you leak problems and other rust issues. Crank AC and enjoy.

It's going to happen, valve cover, plugs and coils are going on tonight. Pickup, oil pan, flywheel, clutch, pp and tranny are going on friday. Bronze shift bushing is getting made friday afternoon and then it's going in on the weekend. That's the plan. Let's jut hope it starts.

IT LIVES!!! Changed the starter today. That was a whore.

Idled like a pile of shit to begin with, then I drove her around the block a couple times and that solved that problem. Still is a little rough, probably bad gas combined with old plugs.

Decided to check if the clutch does infact need to be replaced, the professional way *wink*, it doesn't, the slave just needs to be bled.

I think it needs some tranny TLC, the 1st gear syncro grinds, nothing a tranny flush and some redline can't fix. It's alright though, double clutching is FuhRaze.

It also has a very sleight fuel leak that I need to track down, smells like around the filter.

Other then that it's alright, might need front shocks, rotors and pads. General maintainance stuff otherwise.

Oh and it has a small exhaust leak.

Best 600$ I ever spent.

My car has a similar fuel smell around the filter - I'm curious to hear if/when you figure out what it is.

SamE30e
02-27-2009, 12:37 AM
I found it already, the line from the pump to the filter is cracked to shit.

Duct_Taper
02-27-2009, 12:38 AM
Aha. Is that a hard line or a rubber hose? Did you have to drop the tank to find it?

SamE30e
02-27-2009, 12:41 AM
Rubber hose, and no, I just used my sniffer and put my hand under the car and gas dripped into my hand.

Was it #10 or #13 on this diagram? Or the part in between?
