I think is different than you know there is no rule which I take to mean you didn't check before doing so. I don't know if there is a rule or not, don't think it makes a difference--even it it is promoted as something to do, doing so is going to result in complete lack of credibility when ones answer to a thread problem is their advertised product.

I am complete aware I am off topic, would you like me to start a thread and put this to a vote?

Zytrenz, the only additive for cubic inch increase. Want to increase your 3.0 to 3.5, a 4.4 to 4.6 or even a 4.8 to 5.0. Make yours a screamer. See documented results at www.photobucket\ohmy

I am. Never miss watching a race and attend at least two each year. Even sponsored a car in a past life and have been to a school---yeeehaaa, boogity boogity boogity, let's go racin' boys!

OP--if it runs fine and there are not symptoms and no error codes, the sounds are most likely normal. However most likely is not a sure thing. Since audio of all videos vary based based on the quality of the recording device, the distance from the engine, rpms,the quality of the listeners speakers etc. even what sounds the same may not be. I suggest you have a well recommended BMW specialist Indy shop check it over so the engine can be heard in person.

I suggest the hinges should be well lubricated with Vagisil so they go up and down freely. with enough arm spring that should do the job.

Vagisil, the premier synthetic lubricant available in 5W-30 or 40. Obsorbs foreign materials. Available in quarts or gallons--See our Youtube test video--www.youtube\WOW

bcredliner - taking it to an indy is the plan over next few weeks. My travel plans suck, so it has to be what it is for now. Maybe I've read/heard too many horror stories and I'm paranoid. Will get at least one, if not two indys to look at it. Cheers.

I was suggesting a vote as to whether or not selling, promoting or advertising a product on the forum is appropriate.

I don't take it personal. The reality is that, to no avail, I believe I have been trying to help you. I do accept I may be the only one that feels your advertising, promotion and selling compromises the integrity of the forum. It could also be you are well within the rules. If either is true, shame on me.
