Re: Stranger starting issue once warmed up, please help?

Hi

Get your Injectors serviced. Then using the Bentley Manual check the Fuel Pump Delivery and the Fuel Pressure Gauge.

Good look

Re: Idling/stalling issue - '89 635csi

Hi , Have you checked your Injectors for good spray pattern. Check the Fuel Delivery rate, as per Bentley Manual and the Fuel Pressure regulator.
Checking both of these will require a Fuel Pressure Gage kit.

Good look.

Re: Rear Tailights Removal

Hi When you remove the Light assembly, if your lucky the bottom edge of the Chrome will still be intact and it may have some bubbling to the Chrome finish. These can be re-Chromed and small pieces of metal brazed in if needed but it’s not cheap as is most of the parts on the e24. You can get new one...

Sourcing Fuel Pressure Regulator.

Hi Guys

Does anyone know where i can get a replacement Fuel Pressure Regulator for reasonable money.
Have tried Walloth and Nesh and they want £200. Pelican Parts want £300 but are sold out.
The one I require is a Bosch 0 280 160 249. 3.0bar. Bmw part 13531722040.

Re: WTB oil cooler with lines

Hi

If you have some original piping your trying to replace, why not take them to a Hydraulic specialist who should be able to recreate new pipes using the old ones as templates.
I’ve got to replace my Pipes soon so that’s what i plan to do.

Re: CTECK battery charger.

Hi Ron,

I have one of these Chargers and it says before you connect it to the Battery it should be turned on. I have a permanent connection to the Battery so i can just plug it straight into the Charger.
