Re: Hunting/Surging Idle

Strange that no cap, wide open leak, steady but high idle.
Cap on, hunting & fishing, damned if I can come up with any
reason for this, hope someone can come up with a possible cause.

Re: Hunting/Surging Idle

This is somewhat confusing, did you use the gas cap in place of the oil cap to see if the oil cap was leaking vacuum? So, do I have this correct-- with the oil cap removed from the cam cover--the idle is steady @ around 1300 rpm and no searching. With the oil cap screwed onto the cam cover the engin...

Re: 1981 635CSi - Ascot Grau

So you are torquing step 3 to 74 lbs instead of angle torquing

because your using an elring gasket?

If you were using a BMW m30 B35 head on a B34 block with a BMW gasket

and head bolts would you then use angle torquing?

Yes Fritz is the 85 but I have the world bumper set on it.
Do you have the World Front Air Dam?
I'd be very interested.

Re: Engine dying in reverse?

So this stalling in reverse happened after a compression test.

Is it an auto tranny?

I can't think of any link between compression test and a reverse problem.

All I come up with is could be the neutral safety switch wires move

when shifting into reverse to cut out ign.

Just my $.02

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige Moneysucker

Hi Val, Just gave me a thought--I have an IE exhaust with no droning at all. But, when I install the higher HP motor with headers and custom down pipes will it then cause droning, oh I hope not--can't stand to have any more setbacks. Yeah, you're right-- seems like all the Bronzit-Beige are all mone...

Re: A/C Blowing - Speed Dependant

I'll make 2 guesses. 1- At idle the alternator is not feeding enough juice for the fan load. 2- More likely the fan is not working and outside air at speed is giving you the flow of air thru the vents. Top vent is outside fresh air only. Center, left and right vents are AC connected. that's all I got.

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige Moneysucker

Hi Val how are you.

The MAF looks like a great fix. so if I understand, the reduced volume of air thru the MAF is telling the ECU

to reduce fuel flow thereby leaning it out just enough for better drive-ability.

Great fix.

Take care Val.

Re: Need part # for this o-ring

I failed to mention that the engine builder removed the dip stick tube. I should ask him if he remembers what he removed. I guess I jumped the gun on posting and asking before speaking to him. So if that's what the grayed out in REALOEM means, I'm confused because I do have #8. thanks for the heads ...

Need part # for this o-ring_SOLVED_Press-Fit

Didn't get # 9 in the OEM gasket set, looks like it would fit. #8 in the package does not fit, diameter too large. Did a general Google search for "dipstick tube 0 ring" and found rings but not for the m30 b34 block. There's no o ring groove on the bottom of my tube. As a matter of fact, no m30 was ...
