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.

Thanks for all the input.

Talked to the builder and told me press fit.

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 ...

Re: Springs available in Australia

he was swamped with the big time racing crowd to get their engines
ready for the racing season.So, I'm next on his list.

Re: Redline MT-90 in Getrag 260 Gearbox?

I've posted this before. ATF is the best to use and is listed on most BMW trannys. Reason being twofold. ATF is high detergent and the light weight will not fill the dimples on the forks that slow down the syncros. Heavier weight will fill in the fork dimples and causes less friction. https://www.re...
