Give us a picture of the head and the works you believed are done plus the VIN.

Nice rear wing.

Re: 85 euro m635csi & m88/3 timing chain - my project

No, no I don't. - Spoke with http://metricmechanic.com/ they actually convert to a single chain for less mass and faster revving. - As long a your guides and chain are in good shape the conversion is not necessary. If you read earlier in the thread this was addressed. You may be right, for a street...

Re: 1981 633 CSI Revival and Refresh

Agree with the above. Could also be a poorly working fan. Without a good strong fan these engines overheat quickly. The E30 fan is better than the fan on an early e12 based 6'er so you can imagine how important it is to get the fan right! My E3 racer scrapped its original fan for an electric fan fro...

Re: 1981 633 CSI Revival and Refresh

197F is around 92c, so it is getting up there although my race m30b35 gets hotter and my wife's X5 runs on the highway at 95c plus on really hot days. I've put the heat gun on my extractors (of the race car) and had 450c so it can get hot. Check your radiator and water pump. Otherwise, when not at s...

Re: 85 euro m635csi m88/3 - my project

I recon Brick is doing a great job. Some people pull the engine out, others do not. I don't think Brick's choice of engine in rebuild makes him any less of a mechanic. I'd hate to be working on an engine like this but then again, I simply do not have Brick's skill level. I've seen brilliant mechanic...

Re: 1983 635csi Christmas Car

Nice.

With the dogleg you will need to look at diff ratio. Otherwise you'll top out on the track. but, more than likely you have a nice tall diff.

Nice looking car. I've tracked mine and they are a hoot.

Pity but, you building your own means another 6'er get's looked after.

Go later model 635 if you can.

Re: 85 635 LS

I would not do it but am not against it. Did consider an LS3 swap at one time. In hindsight, it would have been cheaper. I would have loved to have seen the 4.4 litre BMW engine in a 6'er.

looking forward to the pics.

Re: January 2018 Catch up?

Thanks Elis. I'll give it a break for 6 months or so and then when re-charged, look at getting her running. Engine should be back in the car in a few weeks and although it has an idle tune and a decent race enduro build, should not be counted as a runner. It will need a proper dyno tune and that wil...

Re: January 2018 Catch up?

I might email Megasquirt in the new year and get their recommendations on the best forums to join. Don't want to even look at it for a few months though. Chasing this for nearly 6 years and getting nowhere fast has left me way way too drained. Thanks for the support though.

Re: January 2018 Catch up?

I'd love to find someone who knows their way around a Megasquirt PRO III. Engine build finished and has had an idle tune on the dyno. Cost me $1.5k to wire the engine with the Megasquirt loom and the Megasquirt is a similar cost. Now the dyno guy has told the engine builder he does not like Megasqui...

Re: January 2018 Catch up?

As much s I'd love too, people have let me down big time on my 6'er. Engine not dyno'd and tuned. It's built but simply not tuned. Idles okay. I'm placing it back in the car un-tuned and will rest it up a while. Honestly not having to call the engine builder 3 times a week and listen to excuses (for...

Mamod17 a good M30B35 will set you back $500 to $1250. Engine woes are the least expensive item. A really good body and clean interior is worth more.
