    Hi Al, Brilliant to hear that your drivability issues are sorted. You are just like the rest of us now, with a classic BMW's that may or may not evaporate condensation when in the warm-up cycle. E28's, when they are running right are sweet No such thing as a stupid question, only stupid people who do not ask questions.... Stay safe. Best regards, Mick

    Hi AL, How is your 528i running, did you get to the bottom of the issues? Best regards, Mick

    Blown Head Gasket

    Hi Ivor, I had to have the head off of the M30 engine in my 1987 635csi to repair number 6 cylinder exhaust studs back in 2002, but used OEM parts without any issues. Also had the heads off of two M20 engined E28's, also for number 6 cylinder exhaust stud failures, but again used OEM parts without any issues. John H's idea to minimise disassembly seems like a good way to keep costs down too I am with you for using an engine crane, damn this aging process... I now realise that I will have to add an engine crane to my list of needs Good luck with the fix. Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    Fan to rad spacing.

    Hi Ivor, Similar for the M20 525e, just enough room to remove the fan without screwing up the rad fins. Best regards, Mick

    So what are you doing in isolation?

    Thank you, nice of you to say so Dan. I would need to build a strong, fine mesh, chain link fence like cage to keep the groundhogs, rabbits, deer, raccoons, beavers, chipmunks, squirrels, coyotes, crows, pheasants and other wildlife from eating the lot if and when we get around to growing veggies. The critters also troff most of the flowers too. We have the Annapolis Valley across the other side of Nova Scotia which is excellent farmland where most of our veggies come from. We have a farm produce stall at the end of our road which sell fresh local seasonal produce at a 1/4 of the cost of the supermarkets I don't lift rocks anywhere as heavy as you do but I have been lifting a lot of smaller chunks of concrete lately Best regards, Mick

    So what are you doing in isolation?

    So back in 2018 I started with a child sized decorative wall masquerading as a retaining wall, which the soil was washing over and around on its way down the hill: During the winter of 2019 this wall was pushed over by the winter freeze. Dug the remnants of the wall out this summer to find the 4 inch drain line had not been glued together, had separated and formed a large void around the pipe. The water in this void froze, heaved up and pushed over the wall: So some new 4 inch line was run and glued to within an inch of its life: Then the new, man sized, retaining wall was built: Really happy with the end result of our staycation this year: A lot of people in Nova Scotia have replicas of peggy's Cove lighthouse in their garden: We now have Spitbank Fort: Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    Brown Cars

    Is this an age related condition? I seem to have become attracted to brown cars in recent years, as I grow up and move into adulthood It all started around 2016 when I went to view a Narzbraun Metallic 525e in June 2016. Then in July 2016 I acquired the Zobelbraun Eta: Recently, I found myself really attracted to a Sienna Brown 3.0 csi: And today I now find that I want this special order Bronze paint 2008 Bentley Continental GTC: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2008-bentley-continental-gtc-11/ Do I need help / therapy Best regards, Mick
