Re: 1981 Euro e24 with Motronic 1.3 - No start. Spark present but no fuel pressure.

Ok so it stopped running again, but I think I actually figured it out! There are two relays with the conversion, a Bosch 0332014112 relay for the fuel pump and Bosch 0332014415 for the ignition. I tapped the fuel pump relay and the car started up again. I shook it and there was something loose insid...

Re: 1981 Euro e24 with Motronic 1.3 - No start. Spark present but no fuel pressure.

Well, it is running well again, with the exception of a surging issue in gear when the car is stopped and in gear that has been intermittently happening for awhile. I think it is airflow related because I noticed that occurring in a very minor way in Denver, but as I drove home and dropped in altitu...

Re: 1981 Euro e24 with Motronic 1.3 - No start. Spark present but no fuel pressure.

Just put in the spare 179 ECU that I bought. It was said to be good and cost me $40 as well. No change from what I can tell. I will try jumpering again as you suggested and check the grounds. Not much else except possibly a fault within the fuse box. I might unbolt that from the fender wall and take...

Re: 1981 Euro e24 with Motronic 1.3 - No start. Spark present but no fuel pressure.

chimi-changa - Thanks for getting back to me. It is definitely a no spark & no fuel pressure situation. With this in mind, I got a good deal on a new Hella CPS ($35 + $5 shipping) and installed it. No change. I just pulled and checked the ECU to verify what number it is and it is indeed a 179. I wil...

Re: 1981 Euro e24 with Motronic 1.3 - No start. Spark present but no fuel pressure.

Thanks for the responses. Aaaaaand I went out to double-check the spark. Nothing now. No spark, no fuel pressure. Seems like things are pointing to the CPS. Will update when i find out more. I may also take a look at the ECU. The rubber baffle in the firewall is missing and perhaps with all the rain...

1981 Euro e24 with Motronic 1.3 - No start. Spark present but no fuel pressure.

Hello, I have a 1981 Euro e24 with the Motronic 1.3 upgrade from a 1991 535i (Thanks Tom!). It was running beautifully (Drove it back from Denver, almost 1000 miles! I made a few small fixes, and also installed an adjustable fuel pressure regulator, which REALLY made a difference in power) up until ...

Hey Tom, Hope you figure it out soon! I was hoping for some good news for you on that front, but I guess the steering wheel will have to do for now! As far as the exhaust leak goes, once it is up and running again, have the car running and cover the tailpipe(s) with a rag, that will make the leak mo...

Re: Not Mine - 82 Euro 5 speed with Alpina parts

I definitely don't disagree. ;) He has the original comfort seats. Original interior is velour and in fair shape. This one is in my own back yard and yet I chose to fly 1000 miles to pick up an automatic that is in cosmetically worse shape. Guess that says a lot, huh?

Has been on CL for awhile. Sort of close to me, so I can go check it out and take more photos for anyone interested. He just dropped the price.

No sir! I know of about 7 or 8 in North America...the original color on mine is brown, only one they made in that shade, so I sort of have to repaint it that color. Lucky me.

If the trim panel that surrounds the shift boot is available, it appears as though I need that as well. Glad I just checked!!

Great, how much do you want for everything? Ship zip is 91343. Perhaps the shift boot could be used for a pattern? I believe the part number is 1175731 for the crossmember that fits the getrag 265.

Hello, are the transmission cross member, shift boot and hard piping for the clutch still available? I would think that the 4 speed and 5-speed cross members are the same...? I am looking to do a manual swap at some point.
