  • RHD Wiper assembly overhaul help!

    Hi Guys,   I’m reaching out for help.  I’ve stripped down and restored the wiper assembly mechanism.  The main wiper motor mounting rod and two linkage rod have been re-plated. I have also replayed all the nuts and washers for the spindles.  However, on closer inspection I have noticed that the spines on the spindle shafts are worn so will need replacing.  I would like help with:   1. The reassembly procedure  2. Where I can buy the grommets for the ends of the linkage rods 3. Are the splined spindle rods available? 4. What do the numbers makes on the spindle shafts mean?  One is marked 47.2 and the other 40.8   I have attached photos and you will see the splined spindles are worm and need replacing.   I would appreciate any help Regards Divyesh

    S14 remote oil filter

    S-14 engine with S-14 filter head with after-market oil cooler.  Problem: can't unscrew oil filter because steering gear is in the way.  I scoured the website, and have not found much in the way of remote oil filter failures, but one last check before I make a decision:
    A. Should I just remove the filter head each oil change and plan on replacing the gasket (for less work right now)
    B. Install a remote oil filter setup (less work every oil change)
    I've looked for an equivalent oil filter to no avail in a 2.5" height that could be un-threaded from the oil filter head.
    I'm concerned with the cheap universal remote oil filter components I'm seeing and looking for trouble free reliability more than anything.  I don't want to blow o-rings or have more oil leaks to contend with.
    I'm looking at adding a thread-on filter adapter and at the other end a Setrab remote filter head at this point.  The remote filter head seems rather bulky, so I guess I need to confirm there room to bolt it somewhere near the front of the frame rail.

  • What Lies Beneath… the fenders.

    Took off the front fenders to see what was underneath the seemingly solid fenders.   After burning off the old lead that smooths out the upper seam, we removed all the fender bolts holding everything on. A bit of wiggling with a screwdriver to break the old body glue and the fenders were free.   We discovered the blinker buckets were largely gone - and "remade" during a previous restoration of the car - a scotchbrite pad was shoved into the space for body filler to grip to as the bucket was "fixed".   The outer edge of the headlight areas were also rotted out and after drilling the spot welds off removed and we made some new ones to put in their place.

    BayArea 02 Swap & Show 2019 on 4 May

    05/04/2019
    BayArea 02 Swap & Show, 4 May 2019, Marina at Brisbane, California. The address is: 500 Sierra Point Parkway-- along the Bay on the North side of Sierra Point. Preregister on Motorsportreg (see below).  Preregistration is $25 while the on-site fee on 4 May will be $30.  Graphic artist Kile Brekke has again added his art to our T-shirts and printed materials; we think you will be delighted with his design!  Please preregister early to help us plan for the best number of each shirt size.  We will have a named bag for each preregistrant so our closing date is slightly earlier than some years to help us organize the bags.   Note— Swap & Show visitors are welcome!  There is no fee for entry if you do not show your car or swap parts.  However, we encourage anyone with a BMW of our vintage to bring your car to display, no matter how mundane your daily driver (dirt, rust and all) or how beautiful your restoration.  Swap & Show does not judge your car so there will be no points for extra dirt, missing dirt, matching luggage or concours glow.  We smile at all BMW's and photographs or videos are welcome (but NO drones over cars)!   Preregistration is now open, until Tuesday, 30 April. Go to [Preregister for Swap & Show 2019].   Larry ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
