Re: BMW E24 US front bumper tuck / lipo

If you want to upload more than 4 pictures (I thought it was 3) just make a second reply to the thread, and upload the pictures 3 or 4 at a time.

IIRC the plate they show as a shim in regard to the flywheel, is actually a plate with tabs on it that are bent against the bolt heads that hold the flywheel to the crank so they can't get loose.
That plate with the locking tabs is why you don't need/use lock washers.

Re: Automatic box playing up

Welcome to bigcoupe!
I've got zero experience with automatics in E24s, so someone else will have to pipe in with suggestions.

Welcome to the group! That sounds like a great adventure! One suggestion: I enjoy driving tunes as much as anyone, but when blasting the back roads nothing beats the music of a BMW inline six.

Re: 633csi starts then stalls, nothing seems out of the ordinary.

I guess it keeps starting and dying doing those tests. Question is, where's the fuel coming from if there's no fuel line to the CSI?

Re: AC blower refresh

If I had one apart I'd darn sure change the expansion valve. It's too common a failure point to reuse the old one.

My two cents worth.

Re: 633csi starts then stalls, nothing seems out of the ordinary.

I would like, for the sake of elimination, that the CSI fuel line be disconnected and the electrical connection to the valve be disconnected, then several starts attempted. If it fires more than once, it's not the CSI. Pressure after one start would be nonexistent, and fuel wouldn't get past the inj...

Re: 633csi starts then stalls, nothing seems out of the ordinary.

I've seen many people say the car could be firing on the cold start valve but not the main injectors, however I disconnected the fuel hose from the cold start valve in order to test fuel pressure and it still starts up then dies. I think it's significant that it still starts and dies with no fuel t...

He included some nice "extras", too. Packed everything VERY well and shipped in a timely manner. I am happy with ...
