Sp0rky, that dash looks sweet dude, i really like it. Im gonna try to get one ASAP.
Now i need more information on the repairs. Right now im praying for detonation. But i want to be prepared for any eventualities.
As far as the fan clutch goes, how hard is it to replace? is it something i could do in my driveway? I'm looking at this as an option for the replacement. http://www.bmwe34.net/E34main/Upgrad...trical_fan.htm
Is this a good option? It seems like a fairly simple install, are there any problems with this setup or has anyone had experience doing something like this before?
Next, i'd be looking at the water pump, It sounds like a more difficult project, what is involved? How hard is it? Is it practicable to DIY? What will be needed and how much will it cost me?
Also, I'd be interested in the oil pump. The thought of this worries me, as it sounds like a major undertaking, Once again, Difficulty? Practical? How much will it cost?
As far as the other repairs go, (rod knock, main knock, rocker arm/shaft) I really need more information on exactly what is involved. As of right now im unsure as to exactly what components these are involved in and what they do, they do not sound like cheap repairs however.
