Re: Hartge head info needed

Thanks to you all. I'm taking the B35 Hartge head and my stock B34 block to an engine builder in Nyack NY. Yep, I could not believe that one of the best engine builders on the east coast is Charlie Olsen. I remember buying performance stuff for my 510 Datsun from him in '74. He's going to check it a...

Hartge head info needed

Can anyone tell me the specs of Hartge heads for the m30 engine. Chance for me to buy a head purchased in '92 for an 86 635Csi. 12,000 miles on head. In those days was it just a head swap, or were there other mods that were done along with the head. Could it be a B35 style head that would bolt onto ...

Re: Radiator: BMW brand vs. aftermarket?

Wondering if there's a difference in water pumps
that would reduce the clearance from an 86 to an 88 car.

Or maybe it's the b34 vs. the b35, assuming you have the m30.

I know that Jimmy S. had a US M and I think his Wizard was an

easy fit also. Just curious---

Re: ABS sensors not made by BMW??

I installed part # 2 from an e23. Was about 14 inches longer than needed and worked out fine. No splicing.

Exact fit on both ends.

Re: Radiator: BMW brand vs. aftermarket?

I have a 5 speed so was no need to fab trans cooler connections. The Wizard bolted up with no problems at all. Plenty of room for fan. I've owned the 6 for 30 years, never had an overheating problem. Five months ago the orig radiator sprung a leak. Temp gauge needle at around 10 o'clock. With Wizard...

Re: Wanted: front abs speed sensors

You can get them for an e23. There're about 14 inches longer, and they are available.

Search vendors for part # 61121365275

Just did this for my 86 635CSi and worked great. The 5 series are too short.

Re: World bumper painted rear rubber top trim

IIRC you'll have to remove the bumper to remove that cover.

The clips hold it in position, just pull evenly along the length to remove.

Re: Head upgrade

Update on the upgrade---Well, I talked to Todd @ TCD and found out that sport head will be no good with a turbo.

I'm going to cancel the MM sport head and have my head worked to TCD specs to accept his turbo.

I'll get more bang for the buck with the turbo.

Re: M6 Motor mounts

FYI, be careful lifting the engine with the oil pan. When you do, you compress the gasket more than it needs to be and may start to leak. Better to do it this way. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=Wc%2bFaG1S&id=1547F53336D2B61CA81922CD6A6C294DB9D92478&thid=OIP.Wc-FaG1S64GM7vAK3m...

Re: Adding a battery charger connection inside the fuel filler door

I also would stay away from the filler door. I know you would plug the connection in first
before plugging in the battery maintainer. But man oh man that would make me very nervous.
The closed boot is a much better idea.

Just my $.02

Yes, the Pulse generator for the e23 will fit. About 14 inches longer then you need. I installed one last month and it works.
