The funny thing is, I bet I could drive around for years with these stickers in the windshield and never once get stopped.

Had an hour to kill today between changing spark plugs on one of the tractors and the outboard on my boat and before a 1pm meeting, so I got a little bit more done on the E21. I removed more of the AC system (from the firewall to the compressor), removed most of the old coolant hoses, and got both the water pump and AC compressor ready to be pulled. I also removed the old car alarm horn on the inner fender. The water pump is sandwiched between the compressor's mounting bracket and I've removed 2/3 of the bolts (the only one remaining is underneath and behind the rusty idler pulley, and I didn't feel like getting down under the car in all the grit that's fallen). I have a new water pump enroute, along with all the hoses. Man, I'm enjoying all the space that will be opened up with the AC out of the engine bay! Once running, it'll nice not having the added weight of the AC system, that old mammoth compressor (which is seized) looks HEAVY. One of the bolts holding the alternator's adjustment arm to the fuel distributor's mounting bracket sheered yesterday (steel + aluminum + 39 years of NY elements = galvanic corrosion city), but with the water pump out of the way, I should either be able to either 1) get my vice grips on the sheered bolt, or 2) get a nut on the end of the sheered bolt and fill the nut with weld, in order to removed the broken bolt. I'll attempt #1 first simply out of laziness of dragging the welder out, but #2 has always been my go-to for broken studs/bolts, and works a lot better than the right angle drill.

After getting the engine turning yesterday, I've decided that I won't be pulling the head at this time, but will pull the intake for cleaning/painting. The filth-pit that is the engine bay and engine will also receive a thorough pressure washing and cleaning, because I refuse to put new parts on such a disgusting mess. I also found a can of duplicolor paint that looks to be a good match to the Saphirblau paint, which will come in handy when I hang new fenders and start some preliminary body work. Oh, also got the frozen "secondary" hood hinges freed up yesterday, so I don't think I'll have to cut off the old and make new hinge pins, as long as I can sufficiently clean up the scale with a small wire brush with the hinge together. I'll have to see how that goes.

Any progress is good progress.

I'm with you on cleaning before reassembling. I used to watch the original "Wheeler Dealers" when Edd China was on there, and it used to make me cringe to see him put new parts back on a grimy engine.

AC compressor out! Water pump out! All that room to play in! Engine’s gonna need a serious flush, that’s for sure.

Also pulled and painted the hood “guides” I guess you could call them, the hooks near the doors that catch the hood’s bumper pins.

Next up: pull the timing cover and inspect. I have new springs and plunger for the tensioner, but I want to see what else is up in there.

Today was mostly “window tint the Olds and GMC” day... needed something easy-lifting in 95*. Afterward, I was reminded of why I’d waited so long to tint the old bastages: I suck at tinting. But, I’m also cheap, so they’re “good enough.”

I did, however, get a start on the valve cover: cleaned up the old one and hit it with crinkle paint. Tomorrow I’ll take the sanding block to the raised parts. I’ll eventually do the same to the intake.

Edit: the paint is actually dark black, despite the glare in the last photograph.

Nice! I used VHT wrinkle black and sanded the letters on my 940 valve cover too.

Nice!

That is the look our E83s went with on their beauty covers, albeit in plastic, only because they needed to cover the beauty within!

Because I’m pulling the timing covers just to have a look, I ordered guides and a chain. I figured at 240k miles I might as well replace them, that longevity record is not one I want to win.

Yeah, it's probably due.

That reminds me, I need to get a valve cover for my E39. I just remembered today that there's a chunk out of it on the front of the cover. Fortunately that's where the gasket is semi-circular and thick enough to prevent a leak. That said, it's leaking all over my O2 sensors anyway, so it needs to be done soon.

There's only one thing wrong with this thread. It makes me want an E21 something awful. A "mini shark" would look great next to my E24s.

One of your E24s would look great next to my mini shark.

It does have me rethinking my initial two phase project plan though: I’m not going to be able to get it driveable and then park it for years, I’m going to want to drive it. Which means new tires, suspension soft parts, brakes. And because I hate doing things twice, I “might as well” upgrade wheels, suspension parts, brakes...

It's called "mission creep", or the "while I'm in here I might as well..." syndrome. My 84 633 project started out as a simple suspension bushing replacement. $3600 later the entire suspension had been replaced/upgraded.

Luck was with me today; I'd been checking various vendors for radiators, with ECS having one for $650. Rockauto never even had one listed... until today, when I found a closeout on the ONLY radiator they had on their website. Ordered immediately! Cheaper than taking the old one to a radiator shop, just to be told it's probably shot anyway (Al corrosion, plastic tanks, etc.).

Good tip!

The one I ordered from RA was only $90 and was the ONLY one, so I had to pull the trigger. Seemed like a good deal.

FCP doesn't even have one.

E21 Project

Between some various other projects around the house, I made some good progress today on the car.

Reinstalled the fuel tank crossover guard.

Removed the alternator and bracket; to this, I had to remove the oil filter adapter in order to gain access to the bolt immediately under it. This of course means I have to clean up the filter adapter before reinstallation.

Then, after of coursing setting the engine to TDC, removed both the upper timing cover gasket. Rather than trying to lock the flywheel with a screwdriver, I opted to simply zip off the crank pulley but with my impact, which it did in short order. Crankshaft never flinched, and the pulley came off by hand. I then removed the lower cover.

This then let to cleaning them up, first with degreaser and then a paint removal disk on my angle grinder, which cleaned the gasket surfaces awesomely, and gave some polish to the visible surfaces. I think I have a new one that might reach a little further; if not I have some polishing attachments for the die grinder.

Tomorrow I might change the chain, guides and install new tensioner. There was some slight slack to the chain, but not too much as both the cam and crankshafts lined up to their marks as they should. The distributor rotor, however, was a few degrees off from where it should be at TDC, but I’m more concerned with the valvetrain at this point. Amazing that the tensioner arm shows zero wear at 240k miles.

Even had time to add a little bling to the old crusty air cleaner lid on the ‘84 GMC. Figured color matching to the truck would be less boring than black. Eventually I’ll refinish the rest of the housing... add it to the list of projects.
