2016 Classic Le Mans

I know its over a year away 8th -10th July to be exact but it's surprising how time flys. I thought it might be a good idea to coordinate a merry band to travel together (where possible), camp up at Le Mans, have a really good time and then travel back. Is anyone interested? Before I start, please r...

Re: 2500 engine woe

Thanks for that Dave, certainly fancy the V8 option espacially as I've a couple of them spare but I need a quick and easy swap as the Dolly won't be ready for the RBRR 'cos I've spent so much time on the saloon. I've decided to source all bits needed to convert to Manual O/D (all donations gratefull...

2500 engine woe

Took my automatic 2.5ltr engined 2000 saloon to Classic Le Mans all went well but I've decided to change autobox to an O/D manual if I can find one. What I did discover was the next day when I started the engine, I got an ominous metallic dull thump/clonk sound from the block at stall speed but it s...

registering on the registers web site?

sorry to be so thick but I can't work out how to register on to the Register's web site. as you can see I've had no problem with the forum but I can't find anywhere on the home web page that states "register here" or words to that effect so I can't login. I did try in desperation to log on using my ...

Re: converting a bw35 to modern 4 speed autobox, anyone?

Just got back from Reigate, via M4. Speedo shows 78/80mph, rev counter shows 5000rpm, tomtom shows 70mph! TR8 would be doing about 2100rpm. Is the autobox at fault? or do I need to change the diff?

Cheers,

Jim

Re: converting a bw35 to modern 4 speed autobox, anyone?

Dave did indeed do the conversion and a write up in SIXappeal a while back, he lives close to me although I haven't seen the car. It was said to be very good. The Stag conversion at £2.5k seems a bit steep, a gearbox out of a later BMW would seem an excellent choice, Dad's '96 323i has a 5speed ZF ...
