Happen to have a spare spark plug tool for the m/s series engines? I don't have a socket that can fit down my m42's plug wells.

I can look but IIRC I sold the pile of trunk tool kits enmass last year.

FWIW, a Craftsman spark plug socket (with the rubber insert) and an extension are what I use on everything.

Pretend the prices are in beer. I can't bear to scrap a good crank but... damn if I can keep stepping over it. Someone come get it.

Easy buddy, this is a family friendly forum.

Maybe I missed it...where's this stuff at?

2" IIRC

I've cut 3 cages worth of 1.75x095 with it. It isn't exactly precise but it does work.

Pretty much right next to the Dunder Mifflin head office if my geography is correct.

I sure wish I knew with any certainty whether I was going to try another E30 at any point...

Is that notcher shippable?

Sure. It's probably 10lbs. Here is a pic - sans shaft, which is still in the drill. Good that I took the pic or I might not have noticed :)

The main issue with it is the shaft/bearing has a lot of play which makes for some accuracy issues. FWIW, you can get a new one from HF for about $40 so in all honesty... you can have this one for the shipping cost but it still might not be a great deal.

I might be interested in the trunk lip spoiler. What color is it? How long is it? Are these things flexible or rigid (for shipping packaging purposes)?

It is black, as wide as the deck of an E30 and rigid.

Here it is sitting atop the bumper... so... a little shorter than that. I can measure it later and report.

Last question, how does it mount? double sided tape, or fasteners, or?

It has studs, so you have to drill the deck lid. It was a factory part - there is only one trunk lid part number though so I I'm assuming the dealers drilled the holes.

Ok, I guess Im going to pass then. I want a lip spoiler like that on my G20, but am not too interested in drilling my trunk lid. Also, the molded corners would likely not fit either. I appreciate your info tho! Free bump...

Is the S50 crank still available? Would you have an S52B32 or even a M52B28 crank available if not?

BTW, I sent you a PM, but then found this thread.

I just took a quick look - all I have in the pile-o-cranks pile is a run-o-the-mill M50 2.5L left on the shelf. Since it's unlikely to fetch any takers... I might have one heavy berkeleying lamp in my new basement bar.

Is the megasquirt still available? Might be interested in it for a challenge car.
