Default Want to borrow an 80 series - north side, preferred!

Well in what some would say is a fitting amount of irony, I need to borrow an 80 for an evening. And if it had a stripped power seat gear even better.

The R&D team over at Gamiviti.com have been working hard all winter designing and procuring a new replacement seat gear, with improved geometry, better material, inherent lubricity and tighter manufacturing tolerances- all aimed to improve what has already proven to be a very advantageous aftermarket repair product. This new gear hopes to raise that bar even further, with even more successful installs and improved longevity. However there are only so many dimensional checks we can do, I need to install one.

But I don't have an 80 to tear apart anymore, so can I borrow yours? I actually only need one of the front seats from it, but better to have the whole thing as it makes it easier to power the seat up to see how the new gear works. I'd essentially be replacing your existing gear with a first article sample of the new design. The whole event can be done in less than 2 beers, which I will supply to you while you witness the operation.

Right now we're looking at Thursday evening, 8:00ish- would that work for any north side 80's?

I'm on the opposide side of the world unfortunately and I'm sure you'll get plenty of help, but if not you are more than welcome to come borrow one of the rigs for as long as you like

James, thanks again for coming over... and for living so close by. I'm very happy to report that the install went well, and the new gears are a notable improvement compared to the old style, I think the masses will be happy with these. that was fun tearing into your seat too, it had been a while! Hopefully this new gear lasts even longer than the last one, thanks again man.

Is "lubricity" a real word?

Hey guys - the new gear looks great. It works great too in my driver's side seat. I don't know if it's the gear or the grease you put in there Tim but the seat is faster than it was before...

Thx again - and best of luck, it should serve the community well.
James
