  1. Hi Ivor, I find that when using Molyslip with the engine oil the reduction in engine internal friction will cause it to run slightly cooler. My temperature gauges, when warm, now sit at about the 57 minutes position or 5 angular degrees to the left of vertical. Enjoy your weekend. Regards, Mick
  2. Hi Rick, Good to see that you are back into your car club and back on the E28, but a pity about the turbulence generated by the move. When are you moving to Brize as we are in the process of setting up an "E28's and other 5 Series on the Hill" meeting at Fort Nelson for the end of May. Looking forward to reading more of your project. Regards, Mick
  3. Hi John, Thanks for your feedback. I am considering using this in my Eta's as it is probably closer to the original specification of oil from when the M20 engine was designed. The main stealers mistakenly put modern fully synthetic into my old 635 once and it ran rough and sounded like a bag of spanners so back for them to put the Castrol Magnatec 20W40 in that was still in the boot. I am reluctant to use the 10W thinner grade based on the 635 experience. I also drop in some Molyslip between oil changes, it looks black and gloopy but the graphite base coats the internal parts and reduces friction, especially at start up which is probably beneficial if the engine is not run regularly. I have used it since the early 80's without any issues. Enjoy your weekend. Regards, Mick
  4. Any body used this? Regards, Mick
  5. Like the beer bell too Regards, Mick
  6. Hi Derek, Thanks for the information, now have tickets so should see you their. There is some sort of an amateur dramatic society performance which will include the un-veiling of the new 5 series which starts around 19:00, so get in early is the advice from Chloe. Regards, Mick
  7. Hi Jamie, Be really good to see a gang of E12's on the coast. Looking forward to seeing your M535 too after your excellent restoration thread last year. Regards, Mick
  8. Hi Dan, Noted green/green. waiting on shipping costs from Ivo. Are you content to collect from Portsmouth if it helps to keep the shipping costs down or would you wish to have it shipped to you direct? Hi Sam, Noted bronze/blue. Are you content to collect from Portsmouth if it helps to keep the shipping costs down or would you wish to have it shipped to you direct? Regards, Mick
  9. High Glyne, My symptoms were: 1. High speed wipe good but would stop on the right side of the screen when switched off. 2. Low speed wipe good but would park on the right side of the screen when switched off. 3. Intermittent would stop on the right side of the screen after 1/2 a cycle. 4. Wash function would cycle through the process but stop on the right side of the screen when the wash cycle finished. I tried swapping the wipe/wash intermittent action control relay in the fuse box with a known good one without success. I then changed the sloppy worn steering column switch for a new one, again without success. Column switch is now nice tight and shinny. Finally I changed the windscreen wiper motor for a new one and the intermittent function was restored. The micro switches for the intermittent control are under the windscreen wiper motor cover and come as part of the motor. I am assuming that one of the switches reversed the polarity of the motor supply so that it drives back to the park position. If this switch does not register that the system is at the right hand side then it will keep trying to go to the right rather than return to park. I now have a spare that I can strip down and try some contact cleaner on the micro switches. Hope this is helpful in your quest for fully functioning wipers. Trying to organise an "E28's on the hill or on the promenade" at the back end of May if you are able to attend. Be good to see you again and talk some more E28 stuff. Regards, Mick
  10. Hi Hippy, Definitely will. If this year turns out to be half as good as last year then that will still be good. Regards, Mick
  11. Hi its been a few months but I have been in touch with Ivo and he has the following front windscreens available: 1. Green screen - 190 Euros. 2. Green screen with a green band - 190 euros. 3. Bronze screen with blue band - 225 euros. He is looking into the shipping costs so I will update the costs in due course. I am into 3 green / green. I am happy to act as a reception point for others if it can keep the shipping costs down. Let me known if you guys are still interested. Regards, Mick
  12. Fitted some clear front indicator lenses and clear side repeaters to the Zobelbraun Eta. NOS front and rear bumpers going to the powder coaters this week to be powder coated Zobelbraun. Regards, Mick
  13. Mick, Thanks for the guidance, I will give this a try. Regards, Mick
  14. Hi Mods, Tried to purchase Gold Membership via the shop and it would not let me because I have already done so. Trouble is this has lapsed during the latter part of last year, so how do I go about re-newing Gold Membership? Regards, Mick
  15. I am sure I have read some where that you can replace the E28 fuse box with an E24 which has the blade type of fuses thus eliminating this type of random electrical failure. Regards, Mick
