Re: Oil Pressure Gauge Setup

Hi Rangi

I did as Sharkfan suggested via a custom brass fitting to take the existing sender for the dash warning light and take the gauge sender and used the spare tapped port on the oil filter housing for oil temp gauge.

Early OBC Display

Although I have a post 84 chassis I have the early model OBC. Since i have a custom dash is only used for outside temp and clock and I do find the clock handy. Lately the far left digit has started blinking. Is the only fix to replace the input unit, or can this be pulled apart and somehow repaired?

Re: Look what the Ozzies did

Agree, well executed, but not my cup of tea either. If I were to do a cross bread would be with a LSV8.

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

Looks like your number plate has claimed a few road kills. If it's legal in Cal I would ditch it completely and replace with vinyl numbers on your new spoiler lip.

Re: Good things begin on Jan. 12, 2009!!

I replaced my heater core as a pre-emptive strike while the engine was out last year. It's not a job I would ever want to do again and took 3 weekends, but not overly difficult. I managed to do this only removing seats, centre console, glove box and lower dash panel, and the fan covers on engine sid...

Re: M30B35 Head Stud Kit

I bought my head bolts a few years back, even though I only rebuilt my engine last year. When it came time I investigated ARP studs also, but stayed with the bolts due to coming across the same issue. It's an issue (or non issue) that seems to generate a lot of debate. Here's more http://www.mye28.c...

Re: 633CSi Turbo - Not a Callaway Anymore

Good skills, that really is some achievement - you obviously know what you're doing.
Curious though why you put the 5 series engine back in the 6, given is write-off .

Not a good idea introducing a potential ignition source to where fuel vapours are likely to be present. I would think of another method.

Re: Took one for the team...

Now you now what we're up against down the bottom of the world.

Add shipping, customs charges plus boarder tax and all BMW parts are still way cheaper ex US or Germany than we can buy locally

You guys are so spoiled with choice and free ground shipping

I've got 3M film on all 4 lights and fogs, applied by mobile Tech - I had all the lights out at the time. Chrome rings removed and when installed help retain the edges.
