Re: IACV tie down bracket NEEDED

Of course you know what to do!! But make a list of these small obscure but detail type parts and I'll see about getting them to you. I hate paying the USPS multiple times when I can stuff one of their flat rate boxes. BTW - these are what I have availlable. No 2-hole units. Ralph IACV Bracket.JPG

Re: Correct Gasket for In-Tank Fuel Pump

They are completely different. I have seen many euro setups with the O-Ring while most US are built with the Gasket Ring with 6 holes for the mounting flange bolts. Not interchangeable as you can tell if you have both seals in hand. The O-ring applies to the system without an In-Tank Pre-Supply Pump...

Please measure the outer pipe diameter. I could use this for adapting to my e12/B35 exhaust if it's 2 inch. Thanks

Re: my 1988 M6

You are an absolute tease. Please post a link to where you store photos. I want lots of underhood pictures just as Bobbo asked - but more!! Agreed that you put lots of beautiful, serious work into the car. Not what I would do but I can appreciate the beauty of what it is. Thanks for the tease :D Ralph

Re: Refinishing the Roundels

Let me see what I can find Bobbo. I have lots of roundels but the e24 rear has an extreme curve.

Use dental floss to get under the roundel to remove it. You probably already know though.

Re: LSD Help

BMW started installing a factory torsen unit about 2003. Usually found in the Z3 and Z4 cars and easily adaptable to e24/28 as the cars used an e30 rear subframe. I've seen ratios from 3.15 to 4.27.

Re: Crankshaft Position Sensor stuck

Remove the flywheel cover between the trans and motor. You can get access to the tips of the sensors when the cover is removed. Be careful not to deform the tip of the sensor as it will be difficult to pull out. The sensors have a sealing oring that will get stuck in the bore. Spray a little lubrica...

I appreciate the update Nick but I'm still puzzled as to which fuse was bad. I'm asking for specifics as simply saying a fuse was replaced leaves it very vague. Fuse for the OBC maybe? BTW, your request for this flywheel opened up my eyes to their current selling value. I used to sell them for $120-...

Well worth the price if it's a true verifiable Alpina. Unfortunately neglected but seems mostly there. Too bad you can't see inside as it should have Recaros also. GO GET IT

No difference except for the BMW insignia and part numbers. Aftermarket are also made in Germany. I'll get pictures of the actual lenses to your email in a few days. Thanks

Creame24 is somewhat local so let me know if you guys get a deal completed and maybe we can ship together.

Re: Engine swap or overhaul

There is no way to "unplug" the oil pump. More likely someone drove the car without ever checking the oil and ran it completely out. The M30 (euro high compression motor in your case) is very robust. I have only seen bad blocks due to oil starvation. These motors are known to handle 500k miles with ...
