Re: How to repair torn rubber protection caps?

You slit the new covers and then put them in place and glue them together with contact cement. You may call contact cemet rubber cement it is what is used to laminate formica . If used properly it will make a very strong joint. The only other way to do it is to remove the pins from the plugs, wires ...

Re: Completely confused as to why my engine isn't running right

There is a guy who really knows his ECU stuff. He calls himself Fuel Injection Corp . I am going from memory. I spoke with the guy many many years ago and I believe he is an electrical engineer that totally knows what he is doing. I was going to send him my ECU and he told me the one I have never go...

Re: Engine swap

Grape what M90 parts are you having a hard time tracking down? The only really different parts are the pistons. Bearings, rods are the same as well as injectors fuel pumps etc. Computer is different and that's it I have one and haven't had a problem finding parts. When I had it rebuilt I had custom ...

Re: Car cut out while driving - wont restart! Help!

If you are going to pull the head and the pan you may as well double check the cylinder bores and all bearings as you can do a cheap rebuild without any machine work or at least make sure all is up to spec. You might even consider a 5 speed swap while the motor is out. I guess it just depends on how...

Re: brake pipe retaining screws

IIRC they are just plain pan head metric screws with a Phillips drive. I had all of my hardware replated in yellow cadmium and had bought new screws and just tossed them in with the lot when they went to the platers. I bought the new ones at my local hardware store. So the answer yes was to every da...

Correct ECU is 261 200 002 You may have the wrong fpr which should be 2.5 bar and I think you also have the wrong injectors

If you have your ignition lock it is not a big deal for a lock smith to re key your other cylinder or any other cylinders to match. Saves the trouble of pulling the ignition switch. I had to replace my door cylinders and re keyed the new cylinders my self

Tom I do not believe 011 is the correct ECU for basic FI but rather Motronic 1.1 Euros. He said he is running low impedence injectors another hint towards Motronic basic. The fact that he is running a slide valve and auxilliary air valve shows the FI to be basic. Piano top pistons have to do with th...

You might want to go there and take a look. You might also check the # of pins on that 011 ECU. Your harness could have b...
