  • <p>Hi Gary! I finally got around to see your Alt Opel IG USA site. I am member number 3400.</p>

    <p>I was wondering whether you could put my two sites into the USA Opel parts suppliers section:</p>

    <p>My goal is to help Opel owners who do NOT have a GT, Manta, Ascona etc. in the US to get their parts from Germany. However, although I came up first in Google searches in 2003 I am now buried on page 179 ...</p>
    <p><br></p>
    <p>It is NOT my intention to interfere with Gil or anybody else who supplies parts for "US main stream Opels". Gil an I are on more than friendly terms and I want to keep it that way <img src="https://classicopels.com/wcf/images/smilies/emojione/263a.png" class="smiley" alt=":-)" height="23" srcset="https://classicopels.com/wcf/images/smilies/emojione/263a@2x.png 2x"></p>

    <p>He too sends people with non-official Opels my way as he is busy enough with his GT business.</p>

      <p>My Senator is running well. I finally found the cause of the battery draining. The starter solenoid was leaking voltage to ground.</p>
      <p><br></p>
      <p>I also have my '59 Rekord P1 up for sale on our Ad Board: <a href="http://ads.classicopels.com/">http://ads.classicopels.com/</a></p>
      <p><br></p>
      <p>BTW, I managed to get opelgt.com to the top of the first page by using a Search Engine Optimum (SEO) program.</p>
      <p><br></p>
      <p>Nice job on the Rekord! I like working with metal. I learned a lot when I built my 24v Ascona A wagon. Had to redo the firewall and trans tunnel. (<a href="http://24v-ascona.blogspot.com/">http://24v-ascona.blogspot.com/</a>) I need to drop the motor as it developed a "rattle" just when you lift the throttle. It might be due to me not putting proper baffles in the oil pan when I made a rear sump pan. I will be replacing the timing chains at that time.</p>

  • <p>Thanks for getting me out of the river!</p>

  • <p>Gary, I was on Opelgt.com and there's a thread about wiring diagrams. Brad pointed out the wiring training manual that he loaned me and I scanned and sent to you. Apparently, it says that AGadmin has disabled the download function. Do you plan on having a similar feature here? If so, I an send you the files again. They're on a PC at work, so it would be Monday. Let me know.</p>

    <p>Thanks again for all that you do for us.<br>Randy</p>

    • <p>You can upload them in the Filebase. I had them in another program on this site but there was a conflict with this site.<br>Trying it again: docs.classicopels.com</p>
