Post subject: My First e30 coupe. Mods to start coming soon.

Picked this car up for 1800$ It was owned by like an 80 year old man for the past two years. He gave me a huge file of receipts with the car for all the work he has had done which i was not expecting but it sure is nice.

Car has cold a/c, good rubber, and plush interior. I am very happy with it and can not wait to get it lowered, among other things. Smile

Finally figured out how to get these damn pictures to shrink.

So the car has a shot to shit fan clutch. It runs at the 3/4 mark on the temp gauge which i do not like one bit. I ordered a new Torque flow fan clutch through my mechanics diamond account at auto zone. Only gunna cost me like 90$ Ill get it tomorrow and see how much it helps.

Car also has a shot to shit center support bearing. Makes a crazy amount of noise under 35mph. I ordered a new one from Bap and am going to try my mechanics gorilla glue trick. Just glue the rubber on the outside of the bearing and let it sit for 24 hours. He says it will never break again so we will see because i have a feeling the drive line may not be balanced properly. He said his kept going out like every month so he said fuck it and glued it. now his is rock solid. lol kinda ghetto but hey if it works fuck it right? I am not sure exactly where you glue it but i will take a pick and put it up. Its at his house right now drying.

Stop going to that mechanic right now if his solution to trashing CSBs every 30 days is gorilla glue.

Also, 90% of the time e30 running "hot" ends up being a loose grounding nut on the temp gauge. And as already pointed out, you overpaid for your fan clutch, if its even bad.

The fan clutch was bad. The car now runs exactly in between the middle and 3/4 mark. And the ac is even colder. It has the original oem skinny radiator so I am sure that needs replacing too, along with thermostat. New water pump though.

I mean he swapped out my csb and the fan clutch for 100$ good deal if you ask me.... pics to be uploaded shortly. I am sure you are all dying to see this fucking glued csb haha.
