Tell me about it Stinger9; my jacks/stands are all in my POD storage far away.

I found a nipple that fits tight over vacuum port. So now I can began install on CCV(after a "back" break). Completed OHFG and belts.

Thought of something today that I could have used countless times before when reinstalling the dang fan. I took my shoelace and wrapped it tightly around the big nut on the fan. Lined it up and pull up on shoelace and I was able to thread the nut as if I had my hand on it!!! This step normally killed me.

Ode2joy--I found the kit to be cheapest at getbmwparts.com but my local stealership matched the prices so I got it without paying shipping and faster. Went back for some other parts and priced matched those too!!
