You won't ever have any issues with your oil nut. It happens way less than people think.

Oil pump nut weld/replacement and rod bearing replacement (when the oil pump nut backs off and the pressure drops to zero it's already too late):

BTW, it's all e36s, not just the M.

Good news. Once I hit phase 2 of Aircrew school (this week) I'm authorized to have a car. I may be flying home for Thanksgiving to get my baby!

Just pray that I don't have duty. :shifty

Woot! Cool, maybe I'll have one of these aggrivating project cars working by then.

Well I haven't left base yet but so far I love it. I haven't found a thing to complain about yet. My barracks are right on the water and I get paid to work out all day. It's the life.
