    what you can do is say something inappropriate about your aunt to burn that bridge, then come to fun stuff instead.

    Alpine E30 Convertible Running Log

    i've run rubber bushings in the past and currently have solid mounts, so i have no experience with poly. my statement is just reference the fact that poly last longer and is easier to install and that anyone choosing rubber for e30 suspension bits to keep it soft is a ninny.

    heh? i've never preloaded CABs on an e30. you have to excessively lube up the control arms to get them in the CABs, so once you put them on the car and set it down, they rotate into the proper position without any special help. regardless, poly CABs are better then rubber anyways, so its a moot point.

    The little V8 that could: 530i Daily Log

    i've used that style bleeder attached to the brake fluid res on my e34 and it worked fine. thinking about how a MC works, wouldn't it be hard for it to fail in a way that would block fluid flow? i suppose the ports could get blocked by chucks of the seal if it was falling apart, but that would result in a rock hard pedal, as the cylinder would be trying to push the fluid out, but it would be just compressing it. the normal mode of failure is bad (leaking) seals causing the opposite problem of no pressure. i'd think the ABS unit would be more suspect. I've read online about procedures to hot wire the unit to actuate the gates, or possible to tap the unit to try and unstick the gates, but I can't find any to reference at the moment. i dont believe the e34 has a valve. the abs unit controls proportioning.

    The Badger Bimmer folks have been super nice. They've always been welcoming, despite not being a member. If you get service/buy parts from dealerships, like to read Roundel, or want to go to any of their driving events, the membership is a no-brainer. If you do none of these things, the membership (like any other club membership) is pointless.

    M52 swap old f-150?

    the 320 is rated for 320ftlbs of torque, well above the power of the engine - i'm not sure how the towing load weight calculates into extra strain on the transmission, though. is it possible to add a transmission cooler to a manual trans? (you'd need some way to pump the fluid)
