Re: OBC buttons (do not light up)

do you have 12v at the terminal where the bulb plugs into the OBC?

Re: Fuel level sending unit

Lots of various aftermarket floats available. I cant recall what the e24 level looks like but if all you need is a float, it shouldnt be too hard to find something you can adapt.

Found this video that may be helpful to repair:

OBC button light replacement

I drove my 87 last night and noticed the lights on the OBC buttons were not working. No issues with the LCD or backlight, just the buttons were dark. I did some reading and there is a small twist dash type bulb that does the button lights on the back of the OBC. I tried to remove it through the radi...

Re: Is Pukar Designs Still In Business?

Very sorry to hear of the passing of your father. We all go through tough times and sometimes all we can do, is to do the next right thing. Delayed decals? So what. Glad you are finding a path back to peace. Wish I could buy you a beer.

I am sorry to hear of his Fathers passing. I recall him mentioning it to me over a year ago. Hopefully things will get to a new normal for him and he can begin shipping some old orders.

Re: Is Pukar Designs Still In Business?

I have been waiting for close to a year. I did get one order from him about a year ago and placed another and havent heard back from him. We exchanged emails a couple of times and he was having family health problems. Seemed like a nice guy, hope all is well. I wish there were other vendors for the ...

Re: door weatherstrips Front and rear window

I ordered and received a set for my 87 m6. The quality appears top notch. I started to install them, but I just wasnt in the mood for the project. My rubber is very stiff but not cracked. I was scared of messing something up during removal. Pretty sure the door cards need to be removed on my car. On...

Re: Rough idle/ misfire on an 85

I had a bmw that started running rough, very rich, hard to start and would run best under acceleration. It turned out to be a bad fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. May be worth checking out.

Re: Which Bilstein struts?

I would see if OEM springs are still available and how expensive they are. I think you need to go with lower springs and new (B8) shocks or keep your B4's and stick with OE springs.

Yes, I do think. If you like the stance fresh off the lift, you'll likely end up moving the perch ring down a slot after it settles. BT, DT.

I think I would move the perch up a notch if it settled too much....

Re: Question re Bilstein B8's in a 83 633CSI

I cant recall the exact one, but here is a picture from my recent install on a 87 m6. The HR lower the car a little. So, if you measure from the bottom of the OEM strut to the perch and set the new ones up with the same measurement (or as close as possible) that will give you a little drop from stoc...

Hi,

Could you please confirm the part numbers these replace? Is this for window/ door seals? Or what exactly. Cheers

Re: Brake line questions

My 87 USA M6 has a single line feeding the caliper. Fluid travels through the caliper to the other side, but it does have two bleed screws.

The previous owner "upgraded" the caliper lines. Unless you just have to have OEM, you may want to try some vendors that sell aftermarket DOT lines.

Re: door weatherstrip

I used a plastic trim tool and fought with it until I got it in the slot. I didn't slide it in.
