    What other Cars do you own thread

    Most recently working on an old BMW. It's a California car with a completely sealed emission system, the fuel pump permanently mounted in the stainless steel gas tank. It's an $8000 repair at the dealership to replace the fuel pump. It is warrantied for 15 years or 150,000 miles. My car with...

    Help with finding a gasket

    I ruled out the WZ series based on the description of the washer. The WO series looks to me to be the correct one, and they don't have the same sizes in that series. The ones you mentioned are pretty darn close 1.4 mm off on the outer, and 1.11 off on the inner. The second number is the FKM...

    Help with finding a gasket

    There sure have an assortment but nothing with the required dimensions. Interesting catalog & inventory for "five" different compression washers... great descriptions of the design and usage, including the various temperature ranges. Interesting. Thanks for trying :)

    Help with finding a gasket

    A much larger version of the photo is there now. In the old days we used PhotoBucket free accounts, spam and all. I deleted both accounts after getting to the point where I wasn't posting here. I realize that storage costs and all that, but sometimes I can upload sometimes I can't. I replaced...

    Help with finding a gasket

    @plaaya69 posted that they used to use 2 Hex bolts: https://www.google.com/search?q=7mg...AUIDygC&biw=1600&bih=767#imgrc=9r9trD1JdlzRBM The fact that I have both an early block and an early crank made me re-think my HP expectations. There's a pic of the threaded plug above in an earlier post.

    Help with finding a gasket

    Here's a small image (118x119)... thought I'd try again :) Saturday: Sometimes I can upload, sometimes I can't. Here is a full-sized version of the smaller image that was here earlier :) That's the plug and gasket to the right... Have one gasket, believe I have two plugs but can't find other...

    Help with finding a gasket

    There are four different parts catalogs and only one of them has the threaded plugs. (Mine). The block pictured is not my block.

    In this model they are flat and the block is flat to match.

    Help with finding a gasket

    @Piratetip I'm not sure which numbers were ultimately searched. Several conversions were made, and several wrong parts brought to the counter. That's why I started out here today with the Cygnus numbers. The Cygnus catalog lists four possible engines, and this gasket is only used on the early...

    Help with finding a gasket

    It's more like a washer than a gasket, but it is made of a composite material... it's fiber, but also lightly magnetic. The part number is 11401-11432E as seen on this drawing from Cygnus. I've been to two dealers and they've gone through the supersessions, alternately saying no longer available...

    7mgte Wiring Harness

    I wasn't aware they had one. The 7mgte listing on their site wasn't too informative and over the years they've "stopped" making these, only to start up again by request. Sort of puts one in the spot to be obligated to them for providing a much needed harness. I never heard bad things about...

    7mgte Wiring Harness

    That definitely seems like a deal! $500 for the rebuild. $900 for new. Within the last 3 months I paid $1500 plus $200 to purchase the required core to have Tweak'D build me one and they completed it without the firewall grommet which they sent me after the fact, taken from my original core...
