One of those valve stem seals is not like the others. LOL. No wonder that thing was burning the oil it was.

And little bits getting ready for powder coat and ultrasound, respectively. I didn’t know that panel had lights. Stands to reason. Gonna look for LED bulbs for them. Can’t imagine taking all this out again to replace incandescent bulbs.

Here’s something interesting. An E28 seat motor driving one of the rear window mechanisms via a cable. It works very well indeed.

Needed to grind out some new precision 6 mm holes in the gear sprocket to get to 32 BTDC, called for on the 282 cam. And so that’s what happened. Easy.

Car’s out and running. It sounds superb. Next stop upholstery shop midweek for about 4 weeks. Some more gratuitous pics.

Hi Manthri, The stance on your car looks perfect. Mind if I ask what springs you are running to get that stance? It's exactly what I'm looking for.
Thanks
I was told they’re Carl Nelson springs. I don’t have too much other detail. They were “lightly used”, as I recall. But I don’t have anything more specific on them, I’m afraid. They do stance the car nicely.
