Inspection time

Build026 1972 BMW E3 Bavaria LS1 031

The owner of this car bought it and then drove it home around 2 hours. He said it had some odd clunking noises from the drive train. It was all getting pulled out so he didn't look into it.

Well...we quickly found it when we put it up in the air. VERY little was left of the guibo.

In this post we pull the M30 and start fitting the LS1.
