Re: M90 Engine Or Not?

Like Bert says his 81 doesnt have the raised water jacket but I think all early ( like your 79) M90s have the raised jacket and 3.5 embossed. My 79 635 has the raised water jacket, white L and my Vin is 5547084. I would say the engine has been changed out for an NA b34. Unless you've missed the jack...

WTB. AFM. 0 280 203 004

The AFM in my 77 530i is acting a bit weird, the door has a weak spring, then a strong spring action partway into its swing. Its also rubbing and squeaking as it closes. 0 280 203 004 is embossed into the black plastic cover. According to Realoem this is the part no 13 62 1 362 648 I think it was us...

I have a rough set of wipers, motors etc, but the two no 11s are crumbling bits of rubber. Think I saw Brucey was using shrink wrap on his wiper resto thread on here.

Re: Approximate G265/6 value?

This may be some indication of where 265/6 prices are or are headed. A proven operating unit for $1500, not cheap but maybe cheaper than an unproven unit for $1000.

Re: Course to fine spline swap

I'm pretty sure I've seen it mentioned a few times as something someone did. Finding a used late steering column would be pretty easy. Pulling it from a yard car would give you an idea of what it would be like to re&re your existing one. I'd wonder about turn signal/ wiper connections.

Re: Approximate G265/6 value?

This reply may be a little late. IMO a decent looking 265/6 that spins nice and smoothly with no crunching, cleanish oil, and not too much lateral play in the input shaft which is the achilles heal for these transmissions would be worth $800 or up. Bell housing is a bonus worhth maybe $150 and up.

I've been working on a rusty crusty set of HL wipers for my 87 and I have as set of the rubber only wiper blade "refills" . So the blade has no ball shaped holder or stiffener inside it. I need to source those metal parts from used wiper blades. Which I don't have. In the pic you can see the metal h...

I used a booster rebuilt by Jay and it all want very smoothly. Jay has excellent instructions included with his rebuilt boosters as well. That was a few years ago and no leaks at all. I hadn't heard of the aluminum seal till now though.
