635csi Gauge Cluster - mfg 12/84 $150.00

This cluster should be bench tested - I bought it then realized it was different than my 1988 cluster. I do not know if it...

Recommendations on cleaning the inside of clear plastic gauge cluster

Has anyone attempted to clean the inside of the clear plastic lens of the gauge cluster? There appears to be a dusty film on the inside lens. Would like to know your thoughts.

Was planning on replacing some bulbs - so the gauge cluster is already out of the car.

Bimmerheads M30B34 Head on M30B35 Block

Shant at Bimmerheads just sent me some pics of a new B34 head that will go on my B35 motor. He recommend going with the B34 head because the combustion chamber is 7cc smaller than the B35. Hence, it will increase the CR to 9.8:1. Where as the stock B35 CR is 9:1. He used the larger B35 intake valves...

Re: WTB Stahl headers for 85 635csi

Then pay an additional $125 to have them air shipped via FedEx - you should have them in 2 weeks. That how I had my headers...

Has anyone cc the combustion chamber of the B34 and B35 heads. Was talking with and well respected M30 engine builder about this, because I want to increase the compression ratio without going into the bottom end. The thought process is to use a late model euro head that has a smaller combustion cha...

Re: Getrag 260/6 selector rod Length ??

The correct length is 187mm center to center

Modified it to 197mm - tried to measure it form under the car using a big set of dividers

Bad idea !

Will cut it and take 10mm out of the OAL

Have no idea why UUC recommend a 147mm - maybe that is the correct size for the Getrag 265
