Yeah, that sucks man. Well glad you came to the "other" forum as well. We're happy to have ya.

Yeah the linkages can suck, but it's good you scored with pick n pull. If you find any other good parts of those E21s, you can sometimes sell them on these forums for a little extra dough. Front valences are worth bank if uncracked. So are uncracked dashes (non A/C). Yeah, that is used to get top dead center, but you can ALSO put a large socket on a socket wrench and turn the crank pulley nut, too. If you have a socket set, that is. Just make sure the car is in neutral with the E-brake on if you use that method. I included a picture below. These cars really are a blast, and if you stick with it, it will be worth it, I promise! They're some of the easiest cars to work on, but when you are under pressure and not feeling good, no car is fun to work on.

I do hope you get better soon!
