Re: M90 questions

They have to be removed when the head will be flattend, so I want to do it now then I got a flat surface to lay the head on. One can insert the shan...

Re: M90 questions

In my opinion, this version of the tool is one of the more elegant. It has an advantage that it is adjustable for any cam profile. I did noticed that the dimensions and angles given on-line seemed a little off. Presumably something got lost in my translation? So far I have not found a need to fabric...

Re: M90 questions

Hi Mopar, My apologies for chiming in late on this. As others have alluded to, you can utilize the M30 engine specifications to rebuild a M90. Basically, the engines only differ in basic bore/stroke geometry, piston crown design and cam profile. Your question regarding our engines' suitability to ru...

Cloth Interior

I am looking for images of and information about series-1 cars with factory cloth interiors. From what I understand, almost all cars shipped to the US received leather interiors. Series-2 cars appear to have fabric inserts in the door panels and the seats completely covered in fabric. From what I ha...

Re: 1980 Euro 635 CSIA

By the way, I have an unrelated request.
If you have any photos of that cloth interior, it would be great to see them.
Over here in the US, we rarely get to see anything but leather interiors.
Your car being a series-one with what looks like original Recaros really has my attention!

Re: 1980 Euro 635 CSIA

Yes, pulling those intake manifolds are a challenge. That paint mark looks similar to what is on M90 from my series-one with Motronic 1.0. The small double oo on yours is interesting. You can look and see if there are numbers that match the last digits of your VIN stamped on the flat boss above the ...

Re: Series 1 central vs left side exhaust exit

I am not going to admit how many series-one cars we currently have at our family shop. However, I can confirm that the Euro cars have their exhaust tips shifted left of center and US cars have them centered. Both US car and Euro car exhaust tips are pointed straight back in their original form.

Re: Exhaust manifold

jsspegg,

The exhaust manifolds from my 07/1980 build date Euro 635 are pictured below.
Front and back are slightly different: 1 274 808 HD 1 and 1 274 808 HD 2.
In my last engine build, I used the larger gaskets with the integral heat shields without issue.

Re: Pacific Sharkfest 2020 is happening!!!

Not a lot of notice.
We have six series projects spread all over the shop right now. Won't be our best showing.
However, we should be able to scrape up a couple series one cars and a series two car to join in on the fun.

Re: All chrome side mirrors

I believe that transition occurred sometime between 1979 and 1980. Most of our series one cars have mirrors with black bases. This is a 12/1981 build date parked next to a sister series one.

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.
