Re: Tachometer Gears UK

Well any online all say 12 teeth so my counting skills need work.

But yeah depends on what you want, I don't need the clock so the gears alone would be ideal but just depends if you are happy to separate them, if not Ill buy the ones on eBay.

Re: Tachometer Gears UK

Re: Tachometer Gears UK

Thanks, Just to be clear these come out of the speedometer, not the rev counter which does have different cogs. If you have a spare speedometer I can take it apart and salvage the gears. Let me know whats the cost and I will be in touch. Cheers.

Throttle Position Sensor/Indicator

Hi All, I have a very rare throttle position sensor removed from an e24 but the same part as ones used in the e23, e28 and I think e30.. I'm in the UK and have attached pictures but is fully tested and working although I don't have the mounting screws. These are very pricey from BMW costing over £30...

Re: Rear Muffler Delete

Okay thanks guys, didnt think of loss of pressure. As of what I'm after I suppose a little more growl from it, I find the standard system doesn't do a lot for noise.

I mean have you ever taken the whole system off, sounds like a chopper :P 8)

Other suggestions for more growl?

Re: Engine Died when put in Drive

Ill look more this evening but if I did do the relay wire guide you've done would 13amp wire do the trick? And if so I'm guessing what see if the car starts then if it does turn it off quickly?

Thanks Brucey, I did only replace the distributor cap because it did look corroded which the guide did recommend.

Re: Engine Died when put in Drive

So latest is still nothing

Got a brand new crank sensor and tried interchanging the two with an old one but nothing

Now replaced the distributor cap and rotor arm as both were in a bad way but still nothing... Just getting crank with no spark.

Please help! ](*,)

I might have assess to another crank position sensor to diagnose, I'm guessing the two of them are the same senors just reading different things?
