    For a while, I was thinking, "man, that would be a fun project to copy!" But the reality is that a standard drill press would be more than adequate as a step up from holding a drill.

    How's yours holding up?

      It has held up fine. No issues, and I get good use out of it!

        Nope, that's a customer car at work.

        I've got a Cirrus sedan roller that's slated for something with less cylinders, but gobs more power than an M70....

        And also nope. I built an entire new engine for it.....lol where have you been?

          What's going in your e30? You documenting the build on r3v?

            Yessir....I've learned not to say what I'm doing until it's done from all my other abandoned build threads....but lets just say the engine has been upside down at one point in time, along with me.

              You know, all m20 engines are the same. Not sure why you'd get one while vacationing in Australia. Seems like a hassle to bring it back...

                Ah, but if you mate it to an opposing hemisphere transmission you get five reverse speeds and one forward gear.

                        I don’t know about legend but I joined a long time ago - still like to lurk around and get my e30 fix.

                        I think it’s cool to see the site’s still up.

                        Also, I was a total punk when I was a kid. Dang. Probably still a punk, but, less so at least.

                        Seeing the old usernames here brings back a lot of memories from a whole different era. Good stuff.
