Re: End crimps for RHD M635 throttle cable.

You can't "uncrimp" the ends, but you _may_ be able to split the fitting with a hacksaw or mototool and cutoff wheel, remove the cable, and lengthen by silver soldering, then reattach the end by the same method. You need to be skilled at silver soldering/brazing or all you'll do is ruin the cable by...

Re: cruise control physical location

Probably right about the corrosion, but the CC circuit is supposed to "forget" any previous setting once the car is shut off. You've got a hanging CC motor/drive cable (Bowden cable in BMW parlance).

Re: Odometer incorrect

Yup, and it will stop moving completely very shortly. If you want to see it quit quickly, punch the trip odometer reset.

Any time you are examining a 70s/80s/90s era BMW and you see that the trip odometer is sitting at zero it's a good bet that the odometer gears are DOA.

Re: Early Motronic Engine Harness

Glad you got it sorted. I've said it dozens of times to dozens of BMW owners, BMW are very, very ground-critical. One bad ground of all the ground connections can cause all sorts of weird problems, not the least of which is a no-start.

Re: HELP what is this broken connector? 1986 e24 635csi

That goes to the secondary crank position sensor, used only by the BMW shop disgnostic computer. If you trace out the wiring you'll find it goes to the diagnostic port and nowhere else. You can safely leave it disconnected or remove the sensor altogether.

Re: Starting after a long rebuild

Test the #5 injector harness with a noid light. My guess is not only is it not pulsing, but it's killing the other five injector wiring sets.

Outgoing PMs stay in your outbox until the recipient reads it/them.

The pintle is supposed to help the pattern of the injector spray stay directed away from the injector tip....or so I was told.

Re: What are your views on spacers

Rule #1 on spacers: unless they are less than 5mm you MUST use hubcentric spacers. I have 25mm spacers on my 635 to bring the E36-offset wheels (et 45) out to E24 (et 20) spacing. You will need longer lug bolts. Make sure they are CONE lugs, not hemispherical lugs. I made the spacers myself. I am bl...

Not familiar with Dr. Injector. This is what I mean. And the kits I've bought in the past didn't include the filter screens.
