Is it Friday already?! It's been another busy week here at Reggie's Motorworks. And it looks like we might see some rain tonight for our Cruise-In
. We love all kinds of cars...but there's just something about the M3! And we had two of them here at the shop, sharing the same garage space! Let's take a look!
This 1987 e30 M3 got the following:
- clutch kit
- clutch slave & master cylinder
- crankshaft seal
- driveshaft support
- transmission output shaft and shift shaft seals
- exhaust seal rings
- transmission mounts
- new fuel injection hoses
- wheel spacers
Here's a look at the old wheel spacers:
And the new:
The pedal box was cracked, where the clutch pedal mounts, so Reggie replaced this one with a good used one he had in stock.
A closeup of the unfortunate crack:
While the wheel spacers were being installed on the hennarot M3, some work was also being done on a 1988 lachsilber ("salmon silver") e30 M3.
Reggie services the differential:
Along with servicing the diff, this beauty had its transmission serviced as well as replacement of the valve cover gasket, cap, rotor, and spark plugs. A valve adjustment check was also performed. (I really wish I had more photos of both cars! Maybe one of them will win a photo session for their car at our Open House next Saturday, June 19th
...hint, hint!) Speaking of wishing about more photos...last week Reggie worked on a 1986 BMW 325es. This Bimmer got a new BTS Suspension kit, e30 M3 control arm bushings and e36 M3 rear shock mounts, and other new suspension components. Maybe this car's owner will win that photo session!
Reggie recently installed new front and rear brakes (rotors, pads, pad sensor, calipers, brake fluid) on a bimmer...here are the old ones. Please don't let this happen to your brakes!
See how the piston is extended? This is an extreme case! (Note: Please know that we're not being judgmental here, we just like to make nice cars safe to drive again.)
These pads have definitely fulfilled their duty!
As well as the rotors (same rotor, slightly different views):
As mentioned above, next Saturday, June 19th, is our annual Open House! We're excited, and we hope to see you there! Please let us know if you will be able to attend so we'll be sure to have plenty of food! P.S. Yes, "Grillmaster Goble" will be cooking!!!
