Got the new steering rack, tie rods, reservoir and pump in. In this case the AAE replacement was a LUK pump instead of the ZF which was one I had. I am not sure if that will always be the case or if they will reman what they get back. I see the early e36s came with either a ZF or LUK pump. The later ones appear to all be ZF without the threaded housing but the pump itself seemed to be the same as earlier ZF, same mounting holes and pumping pressure by both.

Also I replaced the E34 solid coupler with a new stock rubber one. Feels much better for street driving, I'll take the preciseness hit.

Did the work at BlueBimma's house. His 6.0LS behind mine with N54 swap in progress for red.

Does anyone know the cause for code 1234 / Speed Sensor. It will pop up after about 20 mins of being cleared and then car pulls timing and runs like crap power wise.

I am going to make sure the wire on back of cluster did not come loose but it seems it can be a variety of issue. I have a new fuel pump I am going to replace old one but I doubt that's the issue.

Motor burns some oil and steel leaks It'll be making it's way down to BlueBimma for some final touches and fixes. Going to have some rear brake lines done before the back end is completed. Then body shop to touch up underneath some surface rust. Z3M Roadster springs installed on back. Really made the ride much nicer in MI.

All in all progress is slow and i've only out about 1K on the S52 which is mainly to fix itself. Hopefully I can drive more in the fall.
