    Front transmissin seal

    They are listed by size. If I read this correctly, it a 30x42x7 seal, similar to the National Oil Seal part # 30x42x7 sold at O'Reilleys...

    1970 2800CS Alternator

    I use an AC Delco CS-130 for my Bavarious. It's 105 amps, inexpensive, bolts right in and is very easy to wire up.

    Removing a dogleg from a 635?

    It's been my practice to split the tranny from the bellhousing. Once that is done you will have much better access to the bell housing bolts.

    Getting started on my E28 rear axle swap

    Mine is an E3 so the entire rear axle bolts right in. To put one is a coupe would require quite a bit more work.

    1969 2800 E3 - Bringing The Turd back to life!

    I have a couple of top-bolt filters if you want one. I have one without the check valve and 2 with the check valve. I think the old style filters use the housing without the check valve.

    4bbl conversion

    Here's the big problem with using a square bore carburetor like the Holley in the picture. The flow into the manifold is going to be severely disrupted by the casting configuration. I'm making an adapter plate for a Q-jet for my 4-bbl setup, and the barrels match up very well.

    Is there a way to control adjust the accelerator "curve"?

    Air flow through a throttle blade is basically a square root function. 1/4 open gives you √.25 on the air flow, which is about 50% . 1/2 open is about 70%. We used to use characterizing cams on the air flow controllers we built for boiler controls. You could develop a gas pedal with an...

    What did you do to your E3 today?

    I put a GPS speedo in mine a few years ago. Velcroed it to the top of the column and it reflects off the face of the cluster. It works great and when I change rear gears I still have an accurate speedo. This picture shows the mechanical speedo error with 3.25 gears.

    38/38 Carbs

    I have dual Chinese knock-off 38/38's on my M30B35 and they work very well. The throttle response compared to the 32/36's previously installed is quite a bit better due to the fact that you are opening all four bores simultaneously I use the stock jetting with one size larger idle jets.

    E3 on Ebay doubles in price...

    I've been to a few but it seems like a long way to drive given the price of gas. Most of these events are out east of Sacto, 60+ miles from my house. I went to a cars & coffee event in Vacaville Sunday but I seem to be way out of touch with what passes for an interesting car these days. Lots...
