Another newbie here

Hey peeps, recently picked up a 96 750 with 8,334 miles on it, unfortunately it was not garage kept and needs a little TLC but nothing too major. More to follow

Welcome to the group, If you hadn't read it by now we reccomend the 1st thing you do is lube the splines on the drive shaft. If you wear them out it could cost you $$$$.

Thanks guys, @ shark88, I've seen posts about that but before I get to that I have to clean out the coolant reserve tank as the jack_zz that sold it to me must have thought it was an oil reserve tank and filled it up with motor oil, luckily I haven't run it long enough to have it spill out the overflow in front of my rear tire, that would of ruined my day for sure, lots of flushing to do with all the fluids as after seeing that I aint trusting any of it. @ kc2dgq, I'm from Rockland county, NY just over the Jersey border, will definitly put up more pics once I get her cleaned up a little more & install the windshield which came in today. Have to get her registered in the next day or so as well
