Injectors

Thanks for that Bob.Managed to sort the problem.After releasing the plugs on #1 and #2 injectors the cable loom lifted high enough to turn #1 injector slightly and the casting slid off the engine.A clean-up of the casting and hoses,new gasket and all is going back together.I just hope nothing leaks!...

Injectors

Can anyone tell me how to get the injector harness off? Does it just pull off from the injector plugs? I'm trying to get the casting off that the thermostat housing bolts to and #1 injector fouls it so I can't pull the housing off.Help gratefully received.

Up rating brakes

Cheapest way to uprate brakes is 750i front discs,calipers and master cylinder.Headlights have always been CRAP on dipped beam and I've tried various uprated bulbs etc.Best seems to be Phillips.I know one guy in the States converted to 4 H4 units which gives 4 dip and 4 main beams.Not sure if this i...
