Re: Fuel Rail Assembly

The regulator goes to the front so can only be orientated one way Use rubber grease on the o rings and if they're old replace them. Insert the injectors in the fuel rail then once you have all lined up push down evenly with firm pressure to "pop in" the bottom o seals (to manifold). Make sure you ha...

Re: Cheap gas..

We pay that plus per LITRE for petrol (has fallen about 30c in the last few weeks), after an all time high. Diesel is cheaper but then we have to buy roas user charges. I think we're the most expensive market in the OECD - roughly 50% tax . I remember when I first started driving - was like 50c per ...

Re: Updating an M635csi Track Car to a Race Car

Not sure if you want to try and stay original. Have you considered a custom loom, deleting the dizzy, going to a 60-2 trigger with individual coils or wasted spark?

Wow thats that's something we don't have to contend with here. We have crap roads, ice and grit in winter, lots of lose metal and melting tar in summer, and anal speed enforcement but no salt.

I did this just a few weeks ago on a B34.

Take the manifold support bracket and fuel rail off first. Prio...

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?
