Seems like the U-pull yards up there are kinda drying up. The days of having Ralph's A-Scott, then A-Part, etc, are gone. I know that the exchange rate kinda blows right now for you guys, but, most of the time, there seems to be a fairly decent selection of RWD stuff about 200-240 km south. That being the Arlington and Lynnwood PnP yards, plus 360° Auto Recycling and Gunner Auto Parts in Lake Stevens.

Seems like a good enough reason to renew my passport.

I have a bit of stuff stored up that I need to get rid of, due to upcoming shop renovations. I don't really have the time to catalogue, post, sell, ship, etc., so I'm thinking of opening up the vault here one Saturday and seeing what you folks may want and make me an offer. I have mostly 740/940 stuff, but some 240 stuff as well. Got a fair number of parts from Tiago's old 1990 740 16V too, including the motor (up for grabs). Any interest?

AJ that is an amazing offer. Keep us posted if/when you decide to open the vault. Could be a good day for a general meet up too.

My turbo is failing and I need to find a TD04hL-16t ASAP. Angle or straight flange, anyone have one locally that's in good shape?

Empire Saturday. SIBLINGS!!
Met Pete (76RA24). He was grabbing a g80 out of one of 940's and I snatched the brake cover from the new 240 they have. It's an 84 with a b21a which seems very very strange. The tan interior is in pretty good shape if anyone needs pieces and being a 21a it's got an A cam in it if anyone is interested in grabbing that. It looked like I was one of the first people to pick at it. It's pretty complete still.

heya,

good to meet you Leivon

the steelies are perfect, looking for another set for allseasons in the the spring.

got the G80 installed, couple trips to KMS for tools to press axle bearings, and more trips to lordco for brake clean than I care to admit.

I'm in.
I've got a 90 240 wagon parts car that will be scrapped in the next few months. Most of the good stuff has either been installed in my car or will be kept by me but if anyone needs odds or ends shoot me a pm and I'll bring it to AJ's.

I'm in.

Hey Leivon, what's on that parts car for a transmission? I'd be interested in a aw70/71 swap for Naomi's 244, but I'd need driveshaft, shifter, and trans crossmember (I think) to swap from the aw55 that's in Stan.

I've got some m46s, a 13c or two, various other stuffs if you're interested in any partial trades...
