    Antenna, power/manual

    Removed my old antenna, was wondering if the antenna my car left factory with was power or manual. Have decoded vin to no avail. Does anyone know if cars left factory with one or the other as standard? My thanks

    C.V. joints

    It states it is correct on the Autodoc site Taffy. I've ordered from Autodoc previously, no problems whatsoever. I didn't order an entire replacement joint in the end just got the (very expensive) boot kits from BMW. They do just slide apart, no resistence.

    Engine gasket sealant

    Am in the process of reconstructing my engine and wondered what the best methods are for achieving a good seal between block/sump/timing covers/head all gaskets are new and oem. Sump gasket; as it’s cork and should compress when bolts are torqued, is it wise to apply sealant, and what has been tried and tested? is sealant usually applied between lower timing cover and sump where the gasket is cork? Timing covers; I have Loctite 5926 for gaskets between timing covers (upper and lower) and head/block, is there anything better suited? I’m assuming there is no sealant necessary between upper and lower timing covers where the head gasket is sandwiched, can anyone verify? rear crank seal housing; is a bead of gasket sealant necessary between block and housing plate?

    CV joint

    Stripped down half axles for new boots today, Once degreased, I noticed one joint was rattling due to above normal wear and had a nightmare with ball bearings falling out of a second during the struggle to remove the inside joint covering cap. I remade the dismantled joint but with 720 possible combinations of six ball bearings, it's likely they're not all in the right place. The remade joint feels a fraction tighter than the two that came out intact. There is no wear to the ball bearings. I understand the joints are machined at factory and matched to ball bearings for each of the six grooves in the joint. My questions are; Would it be ok to put the remade joint back into use? Are single joints available to buy? My searches lead me to SKF VKJA 8810, can anyone tell me if this is the correct part? Many thanks
