    Parts in Common with Other Marques

    I got this idea during a discussion in another thread.   Our 02s and classic BMWs have parts in common with other marques. I know of a handfull off the top of my head, but I will start by listing one;   The single brake master cylinder and reservoir to the 1968 2002 and early 1969 1600-2 with single circuit brakes. It is also shared by many Alfas from the late 60s and 70s. The fluid reservoir is also identical. The brake fluid reservoir is also used by some Italian exotics su

    Starter replacement

    My car won’t start and I’m sure it’s the starter as my mechanic said it was going soon. Is there any video showing explicitly how to change or replace the starter on a 76 bmw 2002. Pretty novice here, but I want to try. I have dual webers, so do I need to remove one to get to? Video would be best , thanks

  • Installing Exhaust Manifold or Header Studs

    Written by John Aho Monday, 05 September 2005 Installing Exhaust Manifold or Header Studs By John Aho   Studs are designed to be fitted only "finger-tight" into their threaded hole in a casting. However, a locking type of nut (PTN, or prevailing torque nut) is often specified to go on the stud. These two facts present an inherent dilemma. The grip of the PTN on the stud can easily turn the stud when you don't want it to (how often have you removed an exhaust manifold nut and

    Engine Identification

    The majority of ‘02’s retain their original factory engines. Each car’s original factory engine was stamped with an engine number that matched that car’s VIN. More specifically, the engine’s block was stamped with this engine number or VIN. Thus, even when the VIN and engine number match, you still might want to do some sleuthing to see, for instance, if the engine’s head might be original to the car. One cannot simply assume that an original block will be accompanied by an original head.

  • Oil Pan Progress

    So while I was waiting for IE's machine shop to finish weight reducing my S14 flywheel, I decided to button up the oil pan.  As you may remember, I thought the oil pump chain was a little stretched, so I bought 3 of the .25mm shims from IE and ended up only using 1 of them along with the two, .1 mm shims already installed.  The new shim did the trick and I was ready to install the baffled oil pan and crank scrapper.   I had already gotten my brother to weld in the IE Baffle and after s

    Get Your Ice Outta Here (and the tar too)

    So this adventure started back when I first bought Conrad. I checked for rust everywhere, being sure to use a hammer to test the integrity of the metal everywhere on the body. For a car that (I think) lived it's entire life in Oregon before I brought it to Utah, the rust was surprisingly limited. I knew there was rust around the gas tank, and a little probing of the front valance revealed rust in the usual spot. The floors however, felt sold.   A year later, during a thorough cleaning

    Disassembly Continues...

    As I have some time here and there, I've been continuing to take things apart. The front and rear suspension have been completely removed and fully disassembled. Overall things came apart very easily. There was plenty of dirt in areas. The rear subframe have about 3/4" of dirt built up on it, but on the plus side the subframe itself looks nearly new underneath all the dirt. Either way everything will get blasted and refinished. I found a set of Bilstein inserts in the front that look decent. I'l
