      Thanks Mark.
      Believe it or not,I found the car in a small town in Oklahoma. I know in the states it is hard to get information,and in my imediate area,I own the oldest BMW's. I am looking at another e28 that is in better shape than my Td,(86 eta)..old man says 350 dollars,clean title,and around 177k miles,ran 4 years ago.
      Before I jump though,I want to cover my investments,so that means the Td has to run. LOL
       Anyhow, I do appreciate it,and will continue prowling around the sites until I hit upon a good source.

It is the only thing stopping me from my twisted dream,of having a Td I own,and can drive.= I have tried modified wrenches,half moons,U-joint and extensions.. still nothing,all I can get is either half the bolt head in the socket,or a wrench that will not turn because of the "fin" beside the bolt head itself.
