Re: Today is a lovely day....

Congratulations Don, Good luck with the house projects. I am sure that you will enjoy having more time to spend with your 635. I have not been able to get my head wrapped around an upcoming retirement so decided to “ease into it” by reducing my work load. All this has done for me so far is make me b...

Re: BMW 633CSI Euro (1978) - Classic & Modern

Yes I am enjoying your project thread. My current projects are focused around bringing my two cars back to their original (stock) glory; however, I can appreciate a tastefully done restomod. Your reversed engineered wiring diagram is something that would likely be useful to many of us with early ser...

Re: BMW 633CSI Euro (1978) - Classic & Modern

Hi Lieuwegaal,

I am really intrigued with the wiring diagram you produced of the existing systems. What software are you utilizing for this?
When complete, this document will surely be a great reference in the future for such an ambitious build.
I look forward to see how things progress.

Re: Italy road trip story

Hi Bob, I did see the re released the Bremem. Nice unit, but I am attached to my old Berlin and would really like to put it back in use once again. It is a conversation starter and correct to the period. I am hoping to see a photo or two of motorhead's Berlin in a sixer. I am afraid my installation ...

Motorhead, I am late chiming in on this on also. What a fantastic trip and great article. Thanks for sharing.

Re: 1980 Euro spec 635csi - impulse purchase

Nice looking car from the picture. If it has its original engine, it is no standard M30. The series one 635 cars like this came with the large bore/short stroke M90 motor. These engines produce an exceptionally broad torque curve surpassing other engines available in these cars making them a joy to ...

Re: E12 based car

Everything about this car (with exception to the gauge cluster) points to a series two car for me.
IIRC, series one shock towers are a little more upright (especially the passenger side) and tend to have rounded off or beveled corners.

Hey Pasocb,
Thats a handy lil thing to have!
The Storm-Vulcan Block Master belongs to a friend of mine.
There are some interesting old machine tools tucked away in the hills behind Paso Robles and some of us crotchety old guys that keep them running.

So eloquently stated Baders.
The best I can do is match the engine stand and say that I have an engine block with the same casting insignia.

Re: What to do with 1983 BMW 745 Euro???

From this picture, it looks to me like you have a short stud and nut at each wheel. The previous owner must have become frustrated aligning the wheels on the center hub each time they remounted the wheels. Shockingly short studs though.

Hey Bobo, sorry for the late reply. Missed your comment before. Yes the Polaris car is my brother Leonard's. It is actually the first 6 series car that I purchased before I convinced him to buy it (my collection was growing way too fast at the time). Meet Greg during the drive. Great guy-great car.
