That's a wicked deal -- is that the 3 wheel or 4 wheel stand?

4 wheel stand. Has the little tray on it too which is convenient.

They also have a flux core welder on sale this week for 99$ that I might look at -- I don't know too much about welders though but for that price its tempting...

I noticed that when I was there. I wonder how well it works, but I guess for only $99 its a deal anyway.

Where did you get your engine build specs, such as torquing bolt specs and what not.

I'm a noob welder but I have that flux core welder from Princess.

It will weld basic stuff, it will be ugly and splatter everywhere but it works as long as it's not too thick. I will be using it for some underbody stuff and sway link reinforcement in the front.

P.S - The wire it comes with is garbage though, don't even bother opening it, just toss it and replace with something decent.

I would suggest goin to Linde and gettin somethin decent, welding gets really annoying when it seems like your doin a whole buch of extra work for nothin, just to prep or clean the weld...

I have a PDF e36 and e30 Haynes or bentley manual that helped. I'm not a hack but most of the non-crucial stuff I torque by hand and use loc-tite. I didn't do any internals-- the machine shop did the long block so there was no need for torque angles or whatnot on anything I did

unrelated note.... Boom!





E46 01-05 330, from rackdoctor, picked up in Buffalo. beautiful, and fairly cost-effective. highly recommended.


As for the gauge senders, how the F do you wire this connector??? Ring terminal of some sort??




Hopefully will have a motor-based "boom" later on today or tomorrow...still working on the brackets, wiring, CCV/ICV setup but have most of the pieces. painting the brackets before they go on now.

Ahh you're a lifesaver-- I was expecting the one on the right!

The pressure sender is a normal bolted-ring type thing

I'll head to home depot later on
