If you haven't, remove all but one bolt on the reinforcement plate so you can swing it out of the way and get a much better angle to knock out the shaft with a straight bar or big screwdriver and a hammer. Shouldn't need a big hammer to get the snap ring to release but won't hurt to use one if need be.

Your help along Ruth others on here has been invaluable. I thank you for that.



In the small world we live in I switched on my TV the other night and found myself watching “American Pickers” which (unless I have this wrong, was filmed in your current town Racine? The guy who was being “picked” being a local historian and knowledgeable chap about all things Racine.

I really enjoyed that.
I'll have to try to find that episode. The are a few Racine's in USA mine is Wisconsin. On lake Michigan

I have a gift of problem solving, I get to answer to the Man upstairs if I don't use my gift to help others. XO works great for that because half the time I'm solving my own current or future problem.

It's quite helpful to have a pair the same year. Several times one stolen a part from one car to make the other work.

Wife has both my original fuel pump and my cam position sensor. I moved mine to her car then bought Replacement for me. I've had to swap wheels between our cars and most recently mass airflow sensor trying to root out some strangeness

We are buying a replacement diff from Lithuania. It will be with us next week. The seller is comfortable that it is a straight swap with no adjustments required. We shall see how we go and I wil update this post. Thank you again for all your help here.

Andrew

I hope you enjoy the show as much as I did. Do please let me know. The chap they ouch came over really well.

The diff has now been ordered and I await delivery from Lithuania to the UK.

The seller has been helpful and knowledgeable on both the diff and the e53. Fingers crossed it is a straight forward swap over. We are ready to raise the engine etc.

I miss the car now so really want it back on the road.

I watched the show and thanks a bunch. I want to get the guys books now. Racine is a famous manufacturing hub of the Midwest and they touched on many of the places founded here and still centered here.

Case/International harvester, Dremel, insinkerator (the most famous brand of garbage disposer) and the most famous; Johnson's Wax (maker of 100s of household products like Windex window cleaner, Raid bug killer, and Ziploc food storage.

One of the most famous people ever came from Racine: architect Frank Lloyd Wright, Coincidentally designed Johnson's wax headquarters.

Re: miss the car boy do I know that feeling! When I blew my brake lines it took quite a while before I had the time to fabricate new ones and when I finally did, the damn O2 sensors were giving me fits and I couldn't pass emissions. It took almost 3 months before everything was resolved!

Brilliant. Thank you for the update and info on Racine. A small world we live in 👍

I enjoy people like the guy on the show, who are prepared to share their extensive knowledge on stuff that may not be generally available.

I’m really glad you enjoyed it. I feel like I gave you something back for your help.

Have a great weekend. Let me know if I can help at any time.

FYI: I come from Kilmarnock in the West Coast of Scotland. Famous for Johnnie Walkers Whisky and other things 😇

I've been introduced to the world of fine bourbons but also will check out scotch whisky's as well. My wife gave me about half a bottle of Chivas Regal XV (15 year stuff; very good) for Christmas (snagged some leftover from doing sampling).

Wife just pointed out "well we are famous for cheese" and though CA makes more dairy now, wisconsin will always be 'america's dairyland' and it's awesome to be able to go to a store and buy 8 year old cheddar.
