Who has that manual euro 316 rack? John, Rich? Somebody has one here which isn't installed in a car.

If you wanna run without PS then you want to drain the rack of any hydraulic fluid. It's not there to "lubricate" the rack so you want it empty.

That's too bad! You can't grab it with anything? Excuse the ignorance are the housings interchangeable from the other M/S5x motors?

You should be able to find a new housing even at a scrapyard if that's the only reason you wanted to run a manual rack, may be happier with PS in the long run if you were planning on it in the first place

Ps it sux when friends break ur shit eh? I had a friend money shift and blow my head whoops!

I dropped by the scrapyard today, and there were 3 E36s in there. Two have M50s, and one is an M50TUB25, so hopefully it'll work.

I had a Non-Vanos oil housing and it was different, even though realoem.com had it as the same (part numbers matched...) so I'm unsure of the others.

Here lies Clint Eastwood.
1987-2012











Anyways, I got the engine out of the old car last night. That's going to Toronto to live on in a convertible. Most of the rest of Clint will be built into my new M50 swap car. Obviously everything is unofficially for sale. (wink wink)

NOW TIME FOR SOME ENGINE SWAPPAAAANGG!!! YEAHYEHHH!!

I ran manual steering for a while. It mostly sucks. "Feel" is good, but drifting will break your fingers.

RIP Clint.

NICE.

Scott, I'm not sure, my sister does the car naming. Right now, it's shop name is Anubis, since it's sandy color, and there are so many things that it is...

A noob is missing an engine. A noob is taking up space.

Yep, they're the 15x8s. I had them on 205/45/15 Star Specs. They were very good. I found them VERY light, but strong too. I have a tendancy to bend rims, and these have held up for about 7 months now.

Thanks for the reply! I was looking at the 15x7's with 205/50/15 rubber because I wasn't sure about fitment issues on my car (it's stupid low). Do the 15x8's rub at all? Spacers required?

How does one have a tendency to bend rims? Aim for potholes?
