Re: 1981 635CSi - Ascot Grau

I have used the torque method before and have had good luck so I would use it for all m30s. Recommended from some users on mye28.com

Re: 1981 635CSi - Ascot Grau

Yes, I had purchased one a year ago when I was working in my '80 head rebuild. I used elring and new it was the right gasket. Had to send proof of title to get the gasket from Europe.

Re: 1981 635CSi - Ascot Grau

More progress today. I was able to install the cylinder head on the car and get it torqued down as well as the intake manifold reinstalled. http://drive4corners.com/wp-content/usergallery/hashtag/DSC_1184.jpg http://drive4corners.com/wp-content/usergallery/hashtag/DSC_1187.jpg http://drive4corners.c...

So only E28 based euros it would seem?

Are you looking to restore a car or have more of an already finished vehicle?

Sure thing. Sorry I can't help with finding center caps. From what I understand, they are difficult to source.

Re: E34 540i Brake Upgrade

There shouldn't be much travel with that MC. Are you sure that it is fully bled? If you push the pedal 20 times, does it get rock hard, or does it still remain slightly squishy? If so, that would suggest air is still somewhere in the system.

Re: 1981 635CSi - Ascot Grau

Pulled the cylinder head and found two cracks which would explain some of the burning oil. ](*,)

I have sourced another M90 head with the correct cam and hope to reinstall later this week.

May be a tough fit on the front, I'm not sure. You will rub at full lock and the tires will be stretched, but 225/45/17 should be your best bet.

Rear won't be a problem, even with wide tires.

Re: Where have all the parts gone?

It happens as the cars get older and the demand diminishes. BMW is in the business, not sourcing parts just to keep our old vehicles on the road.

Unfortunate, but the way it is. Look at 02's and E3/E9's. Those are hard to find parts for.

Re: Swapping 86/86 sport seats into 88/89 car - anyone done it

It should be possible. The big difference may be if it has the memory or not. I imagine that will mean slightly different connector, but wire colors may be the same between the two.

Thanks guys! Mileage shows only 117K, so overall it is somewhat low miles even if it has sat outside.

1981 635CSi - Ascot Grau

So a couple of years ago I stumbled upon an early euro 635 a ways outside of Denver. After some back and forth I ended up looking at it and eventually purchasing it. It was actually a one owner car, the owner's dad had bought it new or very close to new and then imported it in to the US (Fred Mintur...
