Re: Z3 2.8 Rear end conversion, reducing 2.8 width to 1.9 sp

It's a lot of effort to get a wider rim to fit. As you suggest, torque figures are different on the 1.9 parts so I guess this may compromise the intended fitment on a 2.8 Easiest way as I see it, fit a complete 'M' spec rear that will handle the 2.8 torque specs or go for the complete lower spec 1.9...

Re: Which gearbox oil?

I'll check tomorrow if I still have some of what I used and will check the specs.

If Westway and Redline meet the specs they should be ok.

The CDV isn't a valve as such, it's a restriction in the end fitting of the hose. The braided type as sold by Earls has a larger bore.

Go with Westway or Redline if they meet the specs required.
