Re: Ex LOCUTUS the fun and pain begin

IF you want, and you're not concerned about replicating whats there, you can radically reduce the plumbing - delete the headlight washers - delete the main washer tank - utilise only the intensive washer bottle - delete the other pump and modify wiring, ie connect the old washer pump wiring to the ...

Photobucket started their shenanigans with blurring out the photos, unless you pay a monthly hosting fee. I have since migrated my photos to Imgur which seems to work well for me.

M88 head, with a E34 3.6L valve cover, shortened 7mm to fit. Done to be able to use direct ignition. Would you mind showing how you laid out the COP's under the E34 cover? Or more accurately, where did you shorten the E34 cover to make it fit. I’ll have to take some photos of the underside of the v...

Woauw ! For the rear spoiler. A portuguese is building them. http://www.jasacarbon.com/product/bmw-e24-spoiler-rear-2 I got a spoiler from him.. DO NOT buy. His spoiler took 4 times as long as he promised and it was tweaked. I did ask for a Carbon version to be made. I needed to have someone do a l...

Re: Expansion tank level going up...

Thanks TBM! I have dabbled with Evans, the flushing side of things puts me off, but in principle I like the idea of it very much. I've ordered a hydrocarbon tester so within the next few days I will be able to confirm if it's a HG issue. If so it's annoying, but not the worst job in the world. I wi...

Re: Expansion tank level going up...

Randall, These cars also have an issue with the 6th Cylinder heating up more as the engine is long. I had idling heat up issues. You should replace the water pump pulley to a e34 M5 piece as it is smaller and move the coolant faster. It helped my car stay cooler. My area can get quite hot in the sum...

We are finally making more progress with the assembly and output of parts. Whomever painted a Rosy picture of 3d printing is wring. We waited over 4 months for Dow to "perfect" their support materials for NylonX and still the parts came out a bit scraggly... I'll probably finish them a little with g...

Re: Ressurecting the Air Conditioning

Hey Randall, I don't know if you want to keep everything original? I know that if you go to a quite common and cheap parallel flow condenser you are making huge progress.. Also, convert to a Spall high flow push fan to move much more air.. The old fan is very weak. The Evap and all its components yo...

I actually had the silicone intake boots and the breather hose just fits on.. I don't think I had any issues for the two years I ran it that way
