Re: m635 Exhaust options

Yes, please do, I'm sure many will be interested in your experience, I have a friend for one that is looking to replace his original OEM system with something SS :-?

BTW, your photobucket pix are not showing, maybe copy them to your PC then attach :-k

Re: Good things begin on Jan. 12, 2009!!

Lookin' good Phillip \:D/ Been a LONG time coming :( Why not fill the rear side markers while you are already at it??

Re: Battery relocation/trunk refurbish project

Tom, it's virtually impossible to get decent shots of where I fed the cable through the firewall :-?

Re: wtt right/left blk euro fenders trade for american fenders. ny longisland

Hey mikeB7, true, but also don't forget that the UK fenders will have holes to mount the repeaters behind the front wheel wells, which I kinda like, by the way \:D/

But I do agree that nyc6 needs to spell out his needs a bit more clearly [-o<

Hey nyc6, I personally do not have any experience with this type of setup, but knowing how the Euro front bumper setup works, I kinda doubt it [-X Reason is, the Euro front "bumper" is really a bunch of chrome cover plates and rubber impact strips that bolt onto the Euro front air dam, not like the ...

Re: cylinder head rebuild and L Jetronic injectors

Song, those pistons are not dished, they are raised, called the "piano top", commonly used in the Euro M30B34 "dirty" motor [-X The CR is rather high on these engines, I seem to recall 10:1 :-" But this does bring up a question for LandShark, what year is your 6er or I guess more important, what eng...

Re: Wiring diagram for a/c and aux cooling fan for Euro '79

Rob, here's what I could find, doesn't "exactly" indicate that it's for a '79 Euro, but lists models from 630 CS thru 635 CSi, even LHD and RHD, so my guess is that all of this wiring is consistent between models, regardless of intended country or side of the pond :-k Not sure about your specific re...
