        except its a running driving 63 1 ton with little rust that needs a carb rebuild. gets 15mpg and is stupid easy to repair. Needs the lights gone through and a little stuff. should be road ready and titled for $1000. my neighbor and I got it as a learning experience and flip project.

              We've managed to get the motor and trans in, front subframe, rack, and sway bar in, front suspension (minus outer tie rods, those are in transit), and front brakes. The plan is to finish up rear suspension and brakes tonight.

              New headers should be in today, so those can get bolted up. Just waiting on hoses to show up so we can button everything up

                I just helped him change plugs and wires. Issue is resolved. There should be a basic automotive class required to reach adult hood.

                He shelled out like 4500$
                Sounds like he should have been really, really pissed off at that shop before he paid the bill.

                  he has no clue on anything, he called saying, does 4500 sound right...lol

                      In Bend oregon and sounds like the e36 steering rack and the pump are not getting along.

                            Its a S52 with a serpentine belt. Sounds like the pump is making noise when at temp. Cold everything quiet. No weird steering feel. I'll look closer in the morning.

                              Chatter noise or whine?

                              Is the fluid high enough? My truck gets all kinds of mad if the PS fluid is too low lol it'll pick up a bubble and chatter and whine.

                              It probably needs to be bled, are all the fittings tight?

                                Whine noise. Fittings tight. Plenty of fluid. The rack to reservoir hose drips but not that much.
