need a few things...

Well, since my e30 came to me with about half the top end in the trunk... i need a couple things. First one is easy...i need a picture of the routing for the radiator hoses and the part numbers/corresponding locations.

next, i need a t-stat housing. surprisingly, or perhaps not, all i am able to locate it the base block that bolts onto the head. Nothing else.

Beginning to think that this car is more trouble than it is worth.

send me a PM with your email and i can send u the diagrams. forum limitations won't let me upload here. i hope u can read eng'g drawings- it should help u somehow.

t-stat housing is available at auto shops or eBay. new on around $45.00 and about 50-60% less for a good used one

Local parts shop can't even get a t-stat housing.

Fan clutch is only $56.
Radiator is $163
Hoses prolly around $25

As far as the routing goes, i basically need a quick pic so we can decipher which one goes where.

Sorry...fail. Thats the base block that is already on my car...I'm trying NOT to spend $20 on a brand new housing hat, mainly b/c by the time i order it and pay shipping, it's $30-$40 and i'm broke enough right now.

dunno where you are but if there's a "pick-n-pull" place close to you; maybe u can get by with $10 for the part and $2.00 entrance fee. u bring your tools n take it out of the car yourself ;-)

hey sorry about that, i was in a piss poor mood all fucking day.

The closest pick-n-pull in in omaha, roughly 90 miles away ( i live in the boonies, ask anyone) and only one of them JUST got an e30, so i might try to make it up there wed to see what is left.

thanks bro.
